Cinco De Mayo USPS Stamp celebrates Latino music legends

Video of new stamps show five Latino music legends

KANSAS CITY MO - While Cinco de Mayo celebrations served as a tribute to the Latino community across the nation, the United States Post Office unveiled a new series of stamps featuring five Latino musical legends.  The stamps feature Selena, Carlos Gardel, Carmen Miranda, Tito Puente, and Celia Cruz.

"While each dynamic performer was a unique personality and came from unique backgrounds, they were all charismatic entertainers and made a lasting impact on American music," said a USPS spokersperson.

The "Forever Stamps" are now on sale. People at the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta appreciate the recognition that Hispanics are a vibrant part of the community.
