Addy C is only 7-years-old but she’s got the moves and the voice of someone who is poised to go into the entertainment industry later on in life.
For now, Addy C, whose given name is Adelynn Cuevas, calls Atlanta, Georgia home, where she sings, dances and plays piano. In addition to performing music, Addy C has already participated in natural beauty pageants and won several titles.
When Addy C goes to karaoke nights in Canton and Woodstock, Georgia, audiences love her. She has gained a following of fans. So, from that, it made sense to share her musical gifts online via YouTube.
If you remember Selena, you might remember a song of hers called “Como La Flor.” Addy C covers it on her YouTube channel. She’s a big fan of Selena’s style and music.
“Como La Flor,” which means “Like the Flower” in English, did really well on multiple music charts back in 1992 when it was originally released via Selena’s Entre a Mi Mundo album. “Como La Flor” went to number six on Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks and number nine on the magazine’s Regional Mexican Songs chart. It was Selena’s third charting single off Entre a Mi Mundo, following “Buenos Amigos” and “Amame.”
Entre a Mi Mundo became the first Tejano album by a female artist to sell over 300,000 copies, and “Como La Flor” became Selena’s signature song, helping launch her career in Mexico, the United States, and other countries. Indeed, Selena became one of the most significant Mexican-American singers of the twentieth century. As the “Queen of Tejano music,” she had (and still has) a strong following among Latin people worldwide. Tragically, Selena was murdered by her crazed, obsessive fan club president in 1995.
Since Selena died, she has become a well-known figure similar to Marilyn Monroe, whose likeness and career live on with legendary status among many devoted fans. So, it’s good to know Selena’s music also lives on thanks to young singers today like Addy C, who cover her songs like “Como La Flor,” and share them online via YouTube and other websites.
