About: Lily Lopez GL -winner of our weekly Facebook poll from Toronto.

"I am a singer-songwriter born in Cuba who lives in Toronto, Canada. At an early age, I felt a profound passion for music. In 2010, I started to work on my first Demo CD which it was completed by December of the same year. Music in Cuba is part of our Culture, and as part of my Culture and passion is where I find my best, I am also a Poet, and as a Poet I discovered the Talent to also write songs, it was then how my career started as a Song-writer.
Just six months after finishing my Demo CD on December of 2010, I was asked to write a song for the new Album by the Popular Portuguese singer Fernando Correia Marques.
His new Album was launched on June 13th,2011, the name of the Album is : Gostas Pouco..Gostas. Track number 4th with Title Por este Amor Mudei, it's the song that I wrote for Mr. Correia Marques.
For those who are Portuguese or speak Portuguese Language, I welcome you to listen to this great Album which it's on it's 3rd Edition."
