In a recent interview, Latina recording artist Jennifer Peña proclaimed her respect for artists such as Ashanti and Destiny’s Child star Beyonce Knowles. Jennifer Peña said, “I’m inspired in so many different ways, by so many different people. Bette Midler inspired me to begin singing and Selena inspired me to sing in Spanish. Everyone who’s out there right now inspires me. Beyonce, Ashanti, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears they’re all out there kicking butt, and the people are out there supporting them and love them, that’s called for admiration and respect. Even the people who are out there shopping their demos to record labels I respect them, admire them, and they inspire me.”
