Wow! I became familiar with Laura Pausini when a good friend of mine played her in his car, I immediatly asked, who is that? It was Laura with her album "Las Cosas Que Vives", it is almost impossible to describe what I felt when I bought the album and listened to all of the songs, it starts with a song of a beautiful and everlasting friendship, as the album played I was filled with all types of emotions, emotions I didn't know I could understand, I identified my life to so many of those words sung by her beautiful voice, it's crazy that I'm taking all this time to write about someone I don't even know, but without a doubt I beleive all of us (her fans) have gotten to know her through her music, through those words of imeasurable pain, betrayal, love so intense it hurts, hope, loyalty, I got to know some of her life and her experiences, a truly beautiful gift to all of us! I now own all of the cd's by Laura that are released in the US and am in the process of having the only three that aren't brought to me from central america! Bravo Laura!
