Robi Draco Rosa
         Draco Cornelius Rosa Suárez (born June 27, 1969), also known as Robi Draco RosaDraco Rosa or simply Draco, is an American-born Puerto Rican, multiple-time Grammy and Latin Grammys winning musician, singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, poet and entrepreneur. I fell in love with his music a long time ago, when I was I kid my sisters used to listen to him a lot, which influenced me to start listening to him. I like the passion, dedication and interpretation of Draco. I know he doesn't have the most amazing voice but the feeling in his voice and passion is unique and that is what I love the most about him. When Ii saw him on stage I can see the same passion and the same feeling things that is the most important in a singer and most don't have it. But I love him not just for the singing also for his composition, he is an amazing composer. Right now I listen to him a lot in the radio or sometimes I just put it on Spotify and listen him for a while. I think unconsciously I was a fan since I was a kid. When I grew up I started listening to him for myself. The mood depends on the song sometimes it makes me think of the world and I feel bad about nature and what we are doing, sometimes it makes me think about my steps in the world, and how I don't know a lot of different things. I did not have the opportunity to go to one of his concerts but this year I'm going for sure. 


    Draco was part of Menudo a Puerto Rican, a band of kids, I'm pretty sure all of you know about this band. He decided to leave the group because he did not have the opportunity to write songs for the group. After that he moved to Rio de Janiero, Brazil he made two solo albums in Portuguese. Wanting to extend the reach of his talents into other media, Rosa moved to Los Angeles, California. He swiftly landed the lead in the feature film Salsa. of Motion Picture. He also appeared alongside Christopher Mitchum in a German film entitled Gummibarchen kussit man nicht. Rosa wrote, produced and performed two songs—“Angela” and “Little Woman”—for the soundtrack of this film, which was released by RCA Records under his publishing company, Seiba Tree Music. Draco worked on Ricky Martin’s A Medio Vivir. He co-wrote and co-produced the majority of the songs on the album, including the hit single, “María,” conquering a space on the Top 10 Billboard album charts.The 1996 release of his second album, Vagabundo, recorded in England and produced by Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera. The video for the song “Madre Tierra,” won Best Rock Video in the 1997 Latin Music Awards; Vagabundo was included in Spin Magazine’s 1997 Top 10 list of “greatest rock in spanish records of all time.” 

    Rosa wrote and recorded Ricky Martin’s chart-topping album Vuelve under the pseudonym Ian Blake, which netted five hit singles including “La Copa De La Vida” (a.k.a. “The Cup of Life”). Between 1998 and 1999, he wrote and recorded Ricky Martin’s highly celebrated first English album, which includes the now legendary single “Livin’ La Vida Loca.” The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard album charts, skyrocketing afterwards to an astounding 20 million albums sold worldwide. For Martin’s album Sound Loaded (2000), Rosa produced four tracks, including the hit single “She Bangs.” Rosa also produced Corazón (1999), the platinum album of Latin pop star Ednita Nazario, for which he also wrote and produced the song “Más Grande Que Grande” under the name Dolores del Infante, which reached a spot in the Top 10 Latin Billboards; he wrote and produced three songs for world- renowned singer Julio Iglesias’ album, Noche De Cuatro Lunas (2000).

Rihanna

    Robyn Rihanna Fenty, best know as Rihanna, was born on February 20th, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados. I fell in love with her unique voice, her rhythm, her unique style for presentation to and her fashion, well sometimes. I have been a fan of her work, since the song "Pon the Replay." I hear her on the radio constantly like when I'm cleaning, running, or doing something active. When I hear this type of music I get active. I have never been to one of her concerts, I just watch videos but I'm planning to go to her concert in October.

   Her second album, "A Girl Like Me", was a platinium-selling album. This album include the #1 hits "SOS","Unfaithfull" and "Umberella." Rihanna dropped her third album, the multi-platinum Good Girl Gone Bad, in 2007. This album include “Russian Roulette” made chart history for Rihanna – as her 12thBillboard Hot 100 career hit. The next single, “Rude Boy” (the fifth multi-platinum certified song of Rihanna’s career) hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Hot 100 Airplay, and MediaBase’s Pop, Hot Dance Radio, Hot Dance Clubs, Rhythm, and Urban charts. The first two singles of the album "Loud", “What’s My Name” (featuring Drake) and “Only Girl (In the World),” were worldwide successes, both solid #1 chart-toppers in the U.S. and UK. “What’s My Name,” “Only Girl (In the World)” and “S&M” became Rihanna’s 8th, 9th, and 10th #1 Billboard Hot 100 hits, respectively. Rihanna now ranks as the only female artist of the past decade to chart ten #1’s on the Hot 100 as well as the youngest soloist to notch ten Hot 100 #1’s.


     Rihanna's  accomplishments also include multiple #1 hits, a Grammy for Best Dance Recording for “Only Girl (In The World), ” a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Run This Town" and a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Umbrella" along with fourteen Grammy nominations, two MTV Video Music Awards, Favorite Pop/Rock & Soul/R&B Female Artist at the American Music Awards, and the European MOBO Award as Best International Act.

She has also sung in Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Hebrew, Greek, and German. I started loving her music maybe two years, I knew about her from my singing teacher when he gave me a song that she sung. I heard other songs and started becoming fascinated with her powerful voice. I heard her when i searched it in the computer  she is not a well-know artist in Puerto Rico. I used to listen to her for practice singing and most of the songs that I know of her are sad so I don't usually listen to them for fun, or for entertainment. I don't want to get that sad. I have never been to one of her concerts, and I never had the opportunity to go, but if someday I can have the opportunity I will do it, and I know I will love it.
   
    She has sold over 18 million records worldwide, with particular success in Europe and Quebec.

I really like Draco's songwriting skills, and, whenever Rihanna has a new single, I end up memorizing it and singing it all day long. I'm interested in finding more about Lara Fabian, since I love "God Help the Outcasts" from the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
