The fabulous meeting between the Queen of Salsa CELIA CRUZ and American Actor MARLON BRANDO, Cuban-American Actor Andy Garcia was there also.
During a concert of the Perfect Combination (RMM Records) held at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA 1994, the American actor Marlon Brando recognized worldwide for his character "The Godfather" participated in the concert in which Celia was present with artists Latinos of the likes of: Tito Puente, Cheo Feliciano, Marc Anthony, India, Jerry Rivera, Tony Vega, Oscar D 'Leon, Jose Alberto "El Canario", Joe Arroyo, Andy Montañez among others.
At that time Celia was also promoting what was then her most recent musical production "Irrepetible" (Unrepeatable - 1994), produced by Cuban singer and producer Willy Chirino.
With this album, Celia won the GRAMMY Award for Best Tropical Latin Performance in 1995.
Brando was seated in the front row and when Celia arrived to the stage, he could not resist the temptation to stand up, go to the stage and hug her in front of the audience.
But not satisfied he shouted "Sugar, Sugar" during the whole concert, he sent kisses and even threw flowers at the stage.
After the concert, Brando and Garcia went to congratulate her in her dressing room and took pictures with her.
