Luis Salgado, Founder & Director of R.Evolución Latina has announced the creating of its first empowering CD to promote their popular mission, "Dare to Go Beyond", via music and lyrics.
In his quest to produce unique resources that inspire, Executive and CD Creative Producer, Luis Salgado, gathered a talented group of singers, songwriters and musicians to share their talents and stories of Going Beyond. Tracks include original songs written and recorded by R.Evolución Latina activists such as "Dare to Go Beyond" and "Atrévete a Más" and popular re-makes such as "Our Deepest Fear", "Yo Puedo" and "Anyway." The Recording took place at Premier Digital Studios, this past Wednesday April 14th. CD proceeds directly benefit the many educational programs and events that R.Evolución Latina produces, including the upcoming 3rd Annual Dare To Go Beyond Children's Performing Arts Camp held in July which is currently seeking sponsors.
