Join us in learning more about a a Latin music artist that has recently introduced to us via Alexsoy!
BIO: In the realm of Pop Latin music, few artists embody resilience, passion, and talent as Cuban Diva does. Based in Houston, TX, this bilingual singer, spokeswoman for Paxton Law Firm, and co-host for HHL Show, has a story that is as inspiring as her music.
Born into a musically inclined family, Cuban Diva's journey into music was almost predestined. Her father, a well-known Latin ballad singer in Las Vegas during the 70s and 80s, was her first inspiration. From singing outside her apartment complex in her elementary school days to performing in bars, clubs, parks all around Houston and surrounding areas. She has also been on podcast in Houston such as TDM Talk hosted by David who has became a best friend to her in such a short time frame. Cuban Diva has always been at home on the stage or anywhere she is invited. She has also ventured out to cities like Corpus Christi one city she loves so much because of our beloved Selena Quintanilla. Someone who has inspired her career as she got older. When she first went to Corpus Christi it was in 2013 and she met a man by the name of Javo G and his wife Stella. She is grateful to have met them. Thanks to them she has been really moving outside of Houston making constant moves in such short time. Thanks to Javo G she was also able to meet Margo Espino who is just like him but the female version out in San Antonio. Thanks to them she has been booked in both cities and the love out there and feed back from her music has been nothing but amazing. She was also on a show called “Puro Pedo Talk show in San Antonio and they all instantly became like family. There’s also a few radio stations she’s been a special guest for that she would like to highlight, one being Majic 104.9 with LBJ, KLMO with Adam Ace & Placido and of course last but not least on Wild 105.5 with Angel Dee. They have all been a shining light to her musical journey.
Everyone has welcomed her with opened arms and offered her to come back anytime. I’m sure there’s more but for now those stand out.
Her recent single, "Sufre" is a testament to her strength and resilience. Based on her personal experiences, the song is a powerful narrative of moving on from a relationship filled with empty promises and lies. It's a message of empowerment and self-discovery that resonates with many listeners.
Her entrepreneurial spirit is evident in her various roles. As a spokeswoman for Paxton Law Firm (thanks to her friend D-Man Escobar), she's appeared in numerous infomercials, showcasing her promotional skills. As a co-host for the HHL Show, a music review podcast, she brings her love for music and her keen ear for talent to a wider audience.
Cuban Diva's story is one of resilience, passion, and determination. From her early days in music to her current success, she's remained true to herself and her art. Her journey serves as an inspiration to others, reminding them to never give up, no matter the obstacles.
Now, Cuban Diva is set to embark on a new journey, collaborating with Alexsoy on a record titled "La Culpa." The song delves deep into the complexities of a couple's argument, exploring the blame game that often ensues. "La Culpa" promises to be a song that resonates with listeners and adds another milestone to their musical journeys.

CD: My alter ego is a Diva a female version of a hustler. I am book and street smart. I am Cuban. So I can say Cuban Diva is the perfect definition of who I represent. Diva to me isn’t a cocky, conceded, think she knows everything type of woman like people think when they hear the word Diva. To me the word Diva means a confident, hard working entrepreneur that can achieve anything she sets her mind to. That’s Diva and that’s ME.
