She has embodied the purest and most mystical of convictions, of which only Fado can well singed by who embodies and feels it intimately.
The Fado with which she was born,
By self-sensitivity she has conquered her place in the sun, the admiration of the many who loves her, the recognition and respect of the peers.
Aware of what most ennobles us in this earthly passage, which, however great it may be, is always fleeting, was guided by a discrete existence and with it moved more in the light than shadow.
Widely human, she inspired those who recognize truth, beauty and joy in the smallest.
In the admiration of so many, inseparable, the Person coincided with the Artist, made unfortunately rare.
Without vanity, but pride, which is different, personified it: Person and Artist shared the same greatness.
She contained dignity in the look, the posture, the voice and energy that emanated from it.
We are so grateful for gift of her existence.
