Dear Fellow mods, Authors, Commenters and lurkers (yes even you),
On the anniversary of Doña Celia Cruz’ death, Fox TeleColombia released a trailer for the upcoming bioNovela and it looks amazing! unlike most novelas, the production value seems really high quality, and the creators have worked with Omer Pardillo Cid, the executor of her estate, so we will get the real music!

SaladBowl author and Outlaws creator/mod, shared this on Twitter and I definitely wanted to share it with everyone on the Bowl.
