Love this woman. For years I thought Sade was beyond compare. Lado Este proved me wrong. How good is she? I dont speak Spanish (not fluently) But I listen to this album at least three times a week. I work in agriculture and all of my co-workers are Hispanic, they demand that I play the album at lunch time. Good luck to her and may God continue to bless her. Peace!
