Media Alert: Award Winning Author, Singer Lourdes Duque Baron, Set To Release “I Called Myself Cassandra”
After much buzz, Award Winning Author, Singer & Entrepreneur Lourdes Duque Baron, announces the International launch of her new book, “I Called Myself Cassandra.”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EPR (Press Release) – Apr. 17, 2014 – SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Confessions of a wild child, featuring heart ache and pain. Navigating through a time in her life that was exquisitely painful.
Many people have asked, and in “I Called Myself Cassandra,” we discover how Lourdes Duque Baron became the woman she is today.
Lourdes scorchingly soulful voice first dazzled most of us with La Vie En Rose back in 2013. Notably the diva was a budding 66 years old for the launch of her 1st musical release and most recently in the sleek and funky cover of Me & Mr Jones ft AKNU.
Her achievements in the music industry thus far have been legendary, well known to her fans. But the private side of Lourdes, the story of what betrayal, love lost and mercy have cost her – and taught her – hasn’t been told before.
In I Called Myself Cassandra, Lourdes gives us the whole story of the woman behind the powerhouse and reveals her high and low points. Destined to be a memoir must-have, and sources close to Baron’s camp reveal there may be a movie deal in the making.
The dissertation will be available on www.lourdesduquebaron.net, June 14,2014 and released at a later date on Amazon, Kindle and other fine booksellers across the US.
Baron recently opened up to Kaleidoscope Podcast, sharing her reasons for baring intimate, secret indiscretions for not only the world to read but her daughter, nieces and girlfriends as well.
“I thought long and hard about writing this book. I’ve had so many sleepless nights tackling if revealing my dark past was the right thing to do for myself and my family. It was a time whereas both my husband and I were spiraling out of control. Then I thought, this memoir is a chance for me to show that we are not perfect, we all make mistakes. In the end my intention is to prove true loves conquers all, but only if both forgive in the same way God forgives, and that he forgets, even our darkest hours.”
The first stop of the book launch will take place on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 12:00pm – 5:00pm at the Barrios’ Hilltop Glendale Mansion – 3021 Waverly Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90039.
Celebrities including Grammy Award winning producer Andrew Lane, Singer Fawn, Recording artist JD Charisma, Actress Becca Minas, CC Perkinson, Linda England, Diane Schock, Adi Rodriguez amongst others are confirmed to attend.
Baron is also working on her debut album, “Feeling Good At Any Age,” set to release this summer. She says, “I want to inspire my fellow baby boomers, it’s never to late to discover your passion and live your dreams.”

Singer José “Cheo” Feliciano died today in a car accident in Puerto Rico, El Nuevo Día reports. He was 78.
At around 4:15 a.m. on Thursday morning, Feliciano appeared to lose control of his green Jaguar as he rounded a curve and hit an electric post, according to a police official quoted by El Nuevo Día. Police say that Feliciano was not wearing a seat belt and appeared to have died from a head injury.
Feliciano was alone in his car and according to multiple reports officials did not find any drugs or alcohol in the car.
His wife, Socorro “Coco” Prieto Leon, told reporters that Feliciano had been at a casino Wednesday night.
Puerto Rico Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla declared three days of mourning, saying, “Today, Puerto Rico lost one of its greatest voices.”
U.S. Rep. Nydia Velazquez issued a statement calling Feliciano a treasure to Puerto Ricans and to many New Yorkers. “His music embodied the rhythm of Puerto Ricans living in New York City and his lyrics helped tell our collective story,” she said.
“Father will live forever because he has given his music, his heart to his people,” Feliciano’s son José Enrique told El Nuevo Día.
Feliciano is survived by his wife and four sons.

Singer August Alsina has had an amazing career the past couple years, seeing massive success for his hit singles “Ghetto” featuring Rich Homie Quan and “Make It Home” featuring Young Jeezy.
Yesterday Alsina stopped by 106 & Park to promote his new album, ‘Testimony,” and during the interview, well — something we can only label ‘weird and unusual’ happened.
106 & Park host Keshia Chante decided to push her luck and ask a question that apparently was to be off limits. Now if you remember a few weeks ago a VladTV interview with August went viral. He was addressing the cancellation of a show that was supposed to take place with him and Trey Songz. In the video he implied Trey Songz thought he was better than him and was acting funny. August said straight up, “I don’t f@*k with Trey”! Keshia asked if he thought the two could bury the hatchet and this is what happened…
“So you just gonna go against the grain and go against everything that … I just told ya’ll not to ask me that [expletive] when I got up in here,” he replied to Chante.
