When Celia Cruz passed away in the Summer of 2003, Latin music lost its queen. During the fourth-annual Latin Grammys, the most notable voices of the generation gathered to send her off in the way she deserved. Marc Anthony, La India, Oscar de Leon, Olga Tañon, El General, Arturo Sandoval, Gloria Estefan, Victor Manuelle, Johnny Pacheco, and Willie Colón combined their star power in a soulful tribute to Celia Cruz.
Starting with "La Vida es un Carnaval," followed by "El Yerbero Moderno," "La Negra Tiene Tumbao," "Quimbara," "Bemba Colorá," and back to "La Vida es un Carnaval" that ended in a loud "Azúcar!" the performance was quickly followed by the loudest standing ovation you've ever heard in your life.
