Mexican singer Thalia released her autobiography "Cada dia mas fuerte" (Growing Stronger), in which she speaks about her best life experiences, but also about very bitter times.

"Thank you very much for coming here. I dedicate this book to you for loving me so much," said Thalia, dressed in a green blouse, black pants and a white hat, upon her arrival at a New York bookstore on Tuesday, Nov. 1, where dozens of fans were waiting for her to sign copies of the book.

The first in line was Nauro Medeiros, a 28-year-old Brazilian who traveled from London to New York to be able to fulfill his dream of seeing his idol in person.

"I like everything about her: the soap operas, the music," Medeiros told Efe, adding that Thalia's work "has always helped me in my life. I've gone through bad times, and her music has given me strength when I needed it."

Also awaiting the star in her wheelchair was Yesenia Torres, 38, who said that she was hoping to find in the book "new things to be able to know her and her family better."

Medeiros and Torres waited for several hours to be the first to have the 40-year-old artist - who came to the store accompanied by her husband, music mogul Tommy Mottola - sign their copies of her book.
