About this video:
After struggling through a rocky childhood, losing her father at the age of seven, and having her mother place her in an orphanage not long after (because she couldn't afford to raise her), Cesaria Evora, learned to sing in the orphanage choir, and went on to be internationally acclaimed. Here she sings the classic spanish song, "Besame Mucho," written in 1940 by Mexican Consuelo Velázquez. It means "kiss me a lot".
