IN LOVING MEMORY OF RITA ROGERS (1937-2012)
FOR MY BEAUTIFUL GRANDMOTHER
(January 10, 1937 – June 11, 2012)
I dedicate my version of this classic ranchera about a weeping woman to my beautiful Grandmother Ida Mae Aragon aka Rita Rogers. - Dakota Romero
Encouraged and taught by her grandmother, who danced her way into show business in a host of Elvis Presley films, Dakota Romero learned how to sing ranchera music through a song Rita wrote in the style.
Dakota's La Llorona premiered on 1 November 2013, on the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) a day on which those who have passed are remembered and honored.
We love you! ❤️ ETE Team
