  • Jim from St. Paul, Mnselena, such a beautiful singer, so much forgotten. her english album was so wonderful, grammy or not, it just wasn't understood. two of the prettiest songs I ever heard were "I'm Getting Used to You" and "Baila conmigo (God's Child)." What a beautifu voice and a precious child of God.
