The Friday Video: Christina Gurrola Sings "Deseo"

From l. to r., Joyce Ford, Armando Villaverde, Christina Gurrola, Jim Tolbert, Judy Ackerman, Rosario Rivera, Rick Bonart
Christina Gurrola is getting some well deserved praise and recognition now. Kristopher Rivera writes about her in today's El Paso Times Tiempo: El Paso singer-songwriter perseveres, launches debut EP. She was a finalist on "Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento", Mexico's "American Idol". A very beautiful and a lovely woman, she has the voice of an angel. I've known Chrissy since 2010 when she helped collect petition signatures which ultimately led to the new Northwest Master Plan which preserved 800 acres of natural open space and saved arroyos from development. Christina was one of the top petition gatherers. She also invited me to a couple of her gigs so I could speak to the audience about preserving our mountains.

It's only fitting that today's Friday video be one of her recordings. You can subscribe to her channel on You Tube and follow her on Facebook
