"Pa'lante" (Move on) by Willy Chirino
There's an inherent power in music to lift our soul out of the mire of daily living and unto a place where we can begin to see things more clear. That power is intensified when the lyrics, the words carried along by the rhythm, are words of life, of hope, of encouragement. This is what I found in Willy Chirino's single, "Pa'lante."

"Sissi: Forever My Love"
A CCF Recommended Product
- Forever my Love is the most beautiful movie I've ever seen. If I could own only one movie this would be it. The most marvelous thing for me is that it is finally actually available for purchase. I've been searching for it for the past 40 years...ever since movies first began coming out in video format for the general public to purchase. I first watched this movie as a little girl in Cuba. I remember going to the theatre and watching this most amazing real life Cinderella story on the big screen. The movie shaped my life. It allowed me to feel that I too could dream impossible dreams and reach them.
