In 1979 Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer recorded “No More Tears Enough is Enough” written by ” Honeymoon in Puerto Rico’s” Paul Jabarra & Bruce Roberts ( Who had also written the title track to Streisand’s movie The Main Event ) and produced by Giorgio Moroder and Harold Faltermyer for Summer’s double album entitled On the Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes 1 & 2. It also appeared on Streisand’s album titled “Wet” A longer 11 minute plus DJ version (the 12″ version) was featured on Summer’s album. The track became a staple of dancefloors all over the country , DJs embraced the collaboration between the Disco Diva and the 60s Pop icon.
Fast Forward 39 years, Miami’s own Salsa Diva who has previously recorded another one of Summer’s hits ” Last Dance” returns as part of a powerhouse duo with the Latin Grammy Award Winner for Best Salsa Album “Intensamente India Con Canciones De Juan Gabriel ” La India” The New Trackto be included in Lucy’s new album ” A Peticion ” ( By Request )
Early reactions from South Florida Djs are extremely positive . Local DJs hunger for New Salsa material which has been scarce in the last few years . No More tears , The Salsa version captures the essence of the original track, Lucy and India’s emotional voice play at the beginning of the song brings a great big smile to those skeptical that such a musical feat could have never been pulled off. The Latin Rhythms explode immediately, calling all salsa dancers to the floor. The track is uplifting and energetic all the while staying faithful to Donna and Barbara’s vision infusing the latin nuances and arrangements that have made Lucy Grau a star in the genre that she and artists like Carlos Oliva invented right here in Miami known as ” Disco Salsa” .
