After captivating us with songs like “Y si te digo” (And if I tell you) and “No te pido flores” (I don’t ask you for flowers) from her first album, Lágrimas cálidas (Warm Tears), Fanny Lu comes back with another refreshing musical album going on sale in December whose first single, “Tú no eres para mí”, makes its debut today on radio stations and we present it here on People En The album titled Enhorabuena (Universal Music Latino), is her second album, an ode to women that, as its title indicates, conveys “a sensation of well-being, full-fledged joy, and gratitude toward God.”

The 36-year-old Colombian singer has a lot to be thankful for. Not only has she made it as a professional, but also as a wife and mother. Her husband, Juan Carlos Madriñán, a 38-year-old Colombian floriculturist, is a great source of support. “He is a dynamo. Without him I wouldn’t have come so far,” says the singer about her partner of nine years. “He makes me feel at peace, very safe.”

Another source of inspiration are her children, Mateo, 6, and Valentina, 3. Valentina –who takes ballet classes– loves to play with Fanny’s high heels and creams, while Mateo prefers to read with her about planets or play the drums while she accompanies him with the guitar. “They’re fans of their mom,” says Fanny. “They listen to my songs.”

Like her children, her fans will surely fall in love with her new songs, including “Yo renuncio” (I give up), which like her radio hit “Te arrepentirás” (You will regret it), speak of female vindication. In Enhorabuena you will find “many colors,” says Fanny, referring to her brush strokes of vallenato, pop rock, merengue and even ranchera. Her lyrics speak of “overcoming” pain, says the singer, “the pain that makes you grow and strengthens you as a woman.”
