"Hear Her Song" is a musical celebration of distinguished female leaders worldwide through new songs inspired by their words. The musical selections are composed by female songwriters and encompass a variety of musical styles, performed with piano accompaniment.
Carla Canales is an acclaimed opera singer and arts advocate, winning recognition as one of the leading voices of her generation, praised by Opera Magazine for possessing a voice that “grabs the heartstrings with its dramatic force and musicality.” She has performed on the nationally televised Hispanic Heritage Awards, was the guest artist for Vice President Biden's Hispanic Heritage Month Reception, and also at the National Endowment for the Art's 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Carla is the recipient of the prestigious Sphinx Medal of Excellence, an honor bestowed upon her by Justice Sotomayor at the United States Supreme Court, and was on Foreign Policy Magazine’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers list for her work using music to bridge cultural barriers. She was invited under President Obama to serve on the President’s Committee for the Arts and Humanities as a Turnaround Artist. In all of the above, she was the first opera singer to receive these distinctions.
