ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sandra Lea Wise was born in El Paso, Texas, but spent her youth in Brazil. When she was seven years old her parents moved to Rio de Janeiro. Sandra was educated in Brazilian schools and spoke Portuguese until she returned to the United States at the age of 18.
The Latin influence would be a permanent part of Sandra's life. Her love of Latin languages and music is a part of her soul. It always comes as a shock to people that this almost 6-foot blond and former Miss Tall Dallas, speaks Spanish and Portuguese natively.

Sandra has taught Portuguese in the Peace Corps, at St. Louis University, where she received her Master of Arts degree in Portuguese and Spanish Literature, and currently teaches Portuguese and Spanish at a Texas university. She enjoys the opportunity to inspire students to learn other languages and in the process get to know other cultures.

Over the years Sandra has performed Latin love songs and in 2003 had the opportunity to record the CD Kiss Me!. In the process of recording a voice-over in Portuguese, Spanish and English for Nokia Phone Company, she met Jason LeBlanc, an accomplished songwriter and musician who recently retired from performing on the road and started his own recording company. He had always wanted to do a Latin album. Sandra told him about the songs that she had been performing for years and sang them into a tape recorder. Jason then wrote the musical arrangements.

"I especially love the way Jason plays the guitar. He truly felt this music and his arrangements are very emotional. I wanted to make a romantic album that expressed all of the emotions of falling in and out of love," says Sandra. The original version, "Romance," is sung in Portuguese, Spanish and English.

On this CD, the songs are sung all in English. Sandra wrote the lyrics for certain songs which didn't have English versions.

"I dedicate Kiss Me! to all the baby-boomers out there like myself, who love romantic music, listen to talk-radio, and are nostalgic for the good old days!"

Dona Sandre
I was uploading your CD to my IPOD today and immediately I was at awe. Your voice is so beautiful and full. Each song has such a romantic essence about it. It brought me back to those two semesters at UTA. Don't think for a minute that I have forgotten all of the Portuguese You taught Me. Tudo Bem

Cynthia Kirkland

Sandra's exquisite voice and sultry delivery is a true romantic experience.
I have known Sandra personally for many years and have always remained in awe of her beautiful voice and talent. Now, in her CDs, Romance and Kiss Me, Sandra has shared with all of us the sensual moods of romance. Her exquisite voice and sultry delivery of these songs is a true romantic experience. Thank you, Sandra, for being my dearest friend!

"Kiss Me!" is wonderful.
My mother used to sing "Bésame Mucho" to me when I was a little girl. Thanks for the translation!


Amazing!
Having experienced Sandra's amazing passion for Latin culture and the language in person (as a professor teaching Spanish), it is amazing to hear these songs knowing how much emotion and life is behind the words. Her amazing life and talent is evident in these songs and, God willing, she will continue to infuse others with her love of beauty and music that only the Latin culture can truly convey.

JUST BEAUTIFUL

I loved this CD, and the english version of Bessa me Mucho!
This is a quality CD! Sandra's voice is so rich! I've really enjoyed the english version of Bessa me Mucho (Kiss Me), which is a classic Latin romantic song. I love it!
