Martha Heredia loved by all in Dominican Republic
Young singer Martha Heredia was met with a heroine's welcome on her return to the Dominican Republic yesterday. Last week Martha was crowned this season's Latin American Idol contest winner. Heredia was greeted by an enthusiastic crowd at the Las Americas International Airport, and then made her way to the Presidential Palace in Santo Domingo where she met President Fernandez and First Lady Margarita Cedeno. Commenting on Heredia's excitement, the President said that the Ambassador's Hall at the Presidential Palace had seen celebrities, sports stars and been the scene of many great events, but never had it been filled with so much energy, until last night. Heredia, who was joined by her parents, gave a positive message to youth, saying that they need to follow their dreams because it's never too late. Speaking on her record, Heredia says she can't give out too many details, but that her first CD will be out soon and will include songs in different genres.
