Maya Azucena inspires at TEDxWomen 2012
Maya Azucena talks about her passion for creating music that inspires people to recognize their own power to change their lives and communities, and performs an original song, "Cry Love." She is an award-winning singer who has been awarded a Grammy certificate; a Proclamation from Congress for co-producing Hope Night, a concert for domestic-abuse awareness; and the prestigious "Top 40 Under 40" Award from The Network Journal. Maya also co-founded (along with Emmy-winning director Lisa Russell) the multimedia website MDGFive.com to raise awareness for better maternal health. Based on this work, Ms. Azucena was selected by the office of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to perform at his “Every Woman, Every Child” event during the 2010 UN Summit.
