Devoted fans of singer Celia Cruz flocked to her mausoleum in New York's Woodlawn Cemetery to mark the 10th anniversary of her death.

The powerful voice of the Cuban-born "Queen of Salsa" rang out at the site where she rests alongside husband Pedro Knight.

"Quimbara," "Cucala" and "La vida es un carnaval" were among the songs selected by Woodlawn historian Cristiana Peña for the observance, which was organized in coordination with the Celia Cruz Foundation.

"I am the first to come every year and bring her flowers," Rafael Rodriguez told Efe. "I can't believe it's already been 10 years."

Cruz died July 16, 2003, in New Jersey, after a battle with brain cancer. She was 77.

A multiple-Grammy winner, Cruz had a worldwide following and earned a score of gold records over the course of a decades-long career. EFE
