"Sometimes in life you meet someone special, and you know in that moment that they have a greater view on life . . . Soraya was one of those people. She remains a strong and positive memory for me."
--Bob Waldron, President, Yoplait USA
"Soraya's music is infinitely intimate and precious, crafted and executed with the love and care of an artisan. There are few complete artists, but Soraya is one of them-- a composer, guitarist, producer, arranger, and singer with a particularly emotive voice. The measure of her worth in the eyes of the music industry was obvious during the 2004 Latin Grammys, when she won the Grammy for the newly created Best Singer-Songwriter category, besting icons like Juan Gabriel, Serrat, and Leon Gieco. Many will remember Soraya as a spokesperson, an educator, and a source of inspiration for so many people who battle cancer. Yet her most lasting legacy is the one she continues to transmit through her songs, her music, and her guitar."
--Leila Cobo, Billboard?magazine

I found Soraya's book by accident when looking in the cancer section with my daughter who has lymphoma... Shocked to see the name Soraya when I had a CD of hers years ago...always wondered what happened and how she never got publicity in OHIO...I cried like a baby what a wonderful story of her and her families misfortune and what a warning for young and old to get mammo's even at an early age...I loved her music...and love and cried for her!Was this review helpful?
