NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 16: Steven Van Zandt and Chita Rivera attend 'The Rascals: Once Upon A Dream' Broadway opening night at Richard Rodgers Theatre on April 16, 2013 in New York City.
I have many great memories of attending the Puerto Rican Day Parade with my heart swelling with pride and joy, just at being a member of its community ... Two things that distinguish the Parade from all the others are great music and the attempt to keep your body still, while you are surrounded by those pulsating rhythms. Not possible! I am so grateful for the honor of being The Grand Marshal. It makes me appreciative of my heritage and to be a part of this exciting day.
For generations, Chita Rivera has been a source of pride and inspiration for Puerto Ricans around the worldMore quotes »
