Celia Cruz

Widely regarded as Cuba's greatest export, this legendary musician and Queen of Salsa spent her childhood on the island before achieving fame and moving to New Jersey. Her career spanned more than 50 years and influenced everyone from Gloria Estefan to Pitbull. Cruz died in 2003 of brain cancer. (Photo: REUTERS/Fred Prouser)
