Biography & Memoir

Mercedes Sosa - The Voice of Hope

A touching story of courage, love, and connection. If you like strong women and untold stories of heroism, then you’ll love this powerful biography.

With her powerful voice and compelling stage presence, the Argentine folk singer, Mercedes Sosa, was a world-class performer, whose influence went far beyond the borders of music. Blacklisted as being one the most dangerous people to the regime in Argentina in the 1970s, she became the underground reference point for the poor and oppressed, and an icon of democracy who fought South America’s dictators with her voice.

Although Mercedes Sosa was one of the most recognized artists in international music, and collaborated with musicians ranging from Luciano Pavarotti, Sting and Joan Baez, she remained an unsung hero outside of Latin America. However, Sosa’s legacy continues to shine. Her example of integrity and solidarity lives on and make her a role model who points out the path to a more emphatic and compassionate world.

Mercedes Sosa – The Voice of Hope charts Sosa’s remarkable life and career and offers a psychological profile that reveals the secret behind Sosa's enormous impact. Besides being a personal profile of the artist and a chronicle of Latin American music, history, and politics, the author explores the scientific underpinnings of how her profound connection with Sosa and Sosa’s music changed her life. By doing so, Christensen opens an avenue to personal transformation that is accessible to anyone.

Sosa’s extraordinary example, coupled with Christensen’s inspiring discoveries will enable the reader to use life’s challenges as a stepping stone for growth. This narrative calls out for the best in all of us—for authenticity, empathy, and compassion.

“In her voice, life becomes a song with a scent of hope as sweet and beautiful as the flower that grows in the paths of those who looks forward.”  (open the link in a new window and listen while you read on)

 

Editoral review: 

Anette Christensen's book, Mercedes Sosa - The Voice of Hope: My Life-transforming Encounter, is both biography and personal memoir. She chronicles Sosa's spiritual, political and artistic journey in the first half of the book. Christensen writes in the present-tense, which gives it an immediacy that's not only powerful and gripping, but it helps to bring this remarkable woman to life. The writing itself is clear, unpretentious and often eloquent, much like Sosa's music. There are times when the author's voice and creativity blends with the material, which is often the case in good historical writing. It's impossible for a biographer to know for sure what a subject is thinking, for example, but in using good research together with a well-honed instinct and empathy, delivering those thoughts to the reader can be a transcendent as well as informative experience. Christensen manages this beautifully, and paints a portrait that incorporates the colors of despair, triumph, love, fear, and all the other human emotions that define a life--in this case, the life of one of the greatest contemporary artistic revolutionaries in Latin America.

In the second half of the book, Ms. Christensen explores, in memoir fashion, her own life, and how her discovery of Sosa's music and life became a catalyst for change and growth in her own. She's careful to use enough detail to make her generalizations solid, and she doesn't shy away from uncomfortable truths about her own life. Her journey through neuroscience and other contemporary approaches to spiritual growth such as mindfulness, is interesting and informative. If I had to choose one thing I regretted, and wish she had addressed more fully, it would be how Sosa affected her own stance toward political things. Make no mistake about it, politics was at the center of Sosa's life, for politics is the science of human relationships. Sosa was a political revolutionary, which is a dangerous thing to be in this world, even in places and times where fascism and repressive politics are underground or waiting for the first chance to rear their ugly heads. 

This is a beautiful book, and I hope it gets the attention it deserves. The fact that English is a second language for the author is remarkable, in and of itself.- Charles Musser, film historian, documentary maker, author and professor of Film and Media Studies

It is a therapy based on the magic that music and mindfulness has to heal the soul in general.

"This is a coherent, lucid, authentic and well researched account of the life of Mercedes Sosa.

M. Webb – Author of South America, Under the Skin of a Foreign Country.

 

About the Author:

Anette Christensen, born and raised in Denmark, began her career by helping develop international charity programs. Later she became a language teacher for college students, and then, with her husband, ran a travel agency and a real estate agency. Now semi-retired and living in Turkey, she writes and focuses on personal growth.

For years Anette traveled in many parts of the world. Her experience with various cultures has enabled her to engage with people with a different outlook on life than her own. She is eager to learn from others and finds joy in embracing the difference of others, spotting the uniqueness that she believes is within each individual.

It was only upon Mercedes Sosa’s death that Anette Christensen discovered this influential and important Argentine singer. Captivated by Sosa’s voice and presence, Anette immersed herself in Sosa’s music and life. In doing so, she discovered an avenue to personal healing that can be accessed by anyone.

In her book on Sosa, Anette shares the singer’s story while exploring the scientific underpinnings of how connecting with another person leads to growth, something Anette discovered intuitively. Mercedes Sosa - The Voice of Hope is the first book by Christensen. It is a product of a life fully lived and shows that Christensen is a gifted story-teller.

Anette has undertaken more than 7000 hours of research for her book about Mercedes Sosa and is today  regarded as a respected Mercedes Sosa ambassador throughout the world.
