Lourdes Valentin was born in the Bronx, NY, from Puerto Rican parents. She graduated from Miami Dade College, where she was trained in the classical, jazz, pop and musical theater genres. After working for two years to develop her music career by working with other bands, she formed a quartet. She experimented with different ideas to develop the concept she uses, today. Lourdes’ concept involves different genres, unique arrangements, lots of improvisations, rich, exciting rhythms, and solid, warm lyrics that inspire and uplift the spirit of her audiences. The concept changes as she has new experiences and explores new territories in the music world. Her work experiences have been an adventurous journey from Jazz festivals in Florida, a Billie Holiday Tribute contracted by Cristian Dior, Soloist with The Great Miami Symphonic Band. Often, Lourdes is contracted by foundations, corporations and creative brides to write personalized songs. Presently, she is collaborating with The Miami Big Sound Orchestra as the lead female singer. Her blog connects her on personal level with her audience. This process created an idea for a future foundation called Heaven's Girl, a name given to her by her pianist. It reminds her of how Lester Young named Billie Holiday. The mission of the foundation is to help women know their value and discover and use their talents to become entrepreneurs.
