Oprah Inspires Singer At 67 To Discover & Live Her Life's Passion
Despite pushing 67, Lourdes Duque Baron recently launched a singing career, set to open Alaska Fashion Week (AFW) & scheduled to embark on a world tour, flaunting a figure a woman half her age would kill for.
“We’re thrilled to announce Mrs Baron’s participation in this year’s show. With the help of this amazing and awe inspiring singer and our celebrated fashion designers we can continue to focus on innovative, high energy entertainment for the tested and true lovers of all things fashion & music. Our goal each and every year is to be a highlight of Fashion Week,” Founder and Executive Producer of Alaska Fashion Week, Dominick Liriano said.
Since releasing her amazing cover of the late Amy Winehouse, “Me & Mr. Jones,” in March featuring AKNU, Lourdes has ascended to dizzying heights on YouTube & MTV downloads. And the lyrics, well…awakens something in music lovers, reminding us of enduring exuberance... and Baron promising with grandeur fortitude, “Nobody stands in between me and my man…cause it’s Me and Mr Jones.”
The timeless beauty debut album, ‘Feeling Good At Any Age,’ is set to release June 2014 and shortly after Baron will embark on a world tour with stops in Manila and Tokyo, November 2014. Yes, the gifted entertainer proves anyone can be their best, whatever the age.
Baron explains that “wisdom comes with age, especially when one is at the stage where I am, still absorbing, looking and learning." Noting what she learned from Oprah's live your passion challenge, "I still feel like something else is coming for me, something very special. I might be 90 or 100 years old, but I’ll be able to say, I’ve got it!”
Oprah Winfrey says many people are held back from becoming who they were meant to be by shadow beliefs and feelings of unworthiness.
About Alaska Fashion Week
The idea of creating AFW was in the mind of the founders as they would say, “for awhile.” In 2012, after a crucial article from the Travel Leisure Magazine, calling Alaska the worst dressed in United States” the group decided to work on AFW to change that statement. Their first year was in 2013 and now AFW is quickly becoming a fashion event to be reckoned with. — Visit www.alaskafashionweek.com for more information and to purchase tickets.
