Dear Shaded Viewers,

It is a bit of a long story but for almost a decade people have been calling Martirio out to me thinking that I was her. If only I could sing… The other day my friends Agusti Camps and Maria de Medeiros invited me to the concert of Martirio. A few years ago when I was attending the concert of Maria, I was sitting in the last row and a man kept staring at me the entire concert. Afterwards he stopped me and said "You are….. I said no. I was not sure if he believed me by the way he smiled. Anyway tonight I had the great pleasure of meeting Martirio in Paris.

Mario Canal would like to visit the photographer, Christine Spengler at her home and go through her closet. Christine thought that I got dressed up like this tonight to look like Martirio. I explained to her that it wasn't till a decade ago that I knew who Martirio was because everyone kept calling me Martirio, especially in Spain but also in Paris and Stockholm.
