Eighty eighth anniversary of the birth of Celia Cruz observed by Google

Celia Cruz was born in Cuba eighty eight years ago today, and Google celebrated the anniversary of her birth with a Google Doodle seen the world over.

It's a reminder of what an international icon the "Queen of Salsa" was during her lifetime and her continuing relevance a decade after her passing in 2003.

Despite her accomplishments and legacy her music remains banned in Cuba by the dictatorship for the simple reason that she wanted a free Cuba.
