The heartbreaking news was shared by the Esperanza Peace & Justice Center regarding the passing of 94-year-old Rita Vidaurri.

We learned that she passed away peacefully with the people that loved and adored her by her side.

She had performed with many great talents such as Celia Cruz, Olga Guillot, Tin Tán, Pedro Vargas, Trío Tariacuri, Lalo 'El Piporro' González, Cantinflas, Nat King Cole and many, many others.

Her legacy will continue to live in our hearts.
