Laura Linda celebrates new single ‘Cuidarte El Alma’ and Entertainer of the Year Award

The re-emergence of Laura Linda continues with the release of her latest single, a cover of “Cuidarte El Alma,” a song originally recorded by Puerto Rican Latin Pop singer Chayanne in 2003.

Laura Linda’s version was produced by Sevy Contreras and features a more Regional Mexican sound.

“We went ahead and changed it to estilo Tejano. We did it in a cumbia,” Laura Linda tells Tejano Nation. “But I wouldn’t say so much Tejano. I think it’s more Mexcian Regional that we did, you know, just to kind of open up and broaden the market a little bit and being able to contribute to all sorts of different markets.”

The Dallas-based singer was recently named Entertainer of the Year at the 2023 All-Star Music Awards last month in San Antonio.

“It was amazing. I don’t want to sound bold or anything but it was time,” said Laura Linda. “I’ve been an entertainer my whole life, you know, dancing, singing, and entertaining. It was really, really good to be able to win that category. It was really nice.”
