Tatiana, a Mexican singer and actress who since the 90's decided to leave her pop career behind and become "La Reina de los Niños" singing children's songs, has made a collaboration with Miss Velvetine to release a medley of covers titled Be Proud. It includes the songs Strong Enough, Babylon and Vogue. This is kind of a big deal because typically in Mexico we haven't seen this kind of openness until very recently, and especially not from artists that are dedicated to the children. In fact, she got a lot of hate comments from her followers, "concerned parents" and religion fanatics that were upset about her "succumbing to the entertainment industry" and betraying her essence. She exposed some of these comments in a following post, and didn't hesitate to remind people why there's still need to raise awareness and keep educating the new generations. Besides dedicating most of her career to the kids, she's also been an advocate against the violence against women, since she herself experience the abuse in the hands of her ex-husband, who had her captive in her own house until she literally escaped by jumping the wall. When she first revealed her story, people didn't believe her and mocked her, and it wasn't until years later that her remarks started to be taken seriously. She's considered the pioneer in Mexico in the genre dedicated to children's songs that are produced with the same quality of pop artists. With her multiple tv shows and albums she released through the years, she became the staple of every kid's party or kindergarten recitals.
