Biography

Fans characterize Legend's musical style as a cross between Gloria Estefan and a female version of Ricky Martin. She was born under the lights of Broadway in New York City but raised to the beat of Salsa and Merengue on the hot sands of Puerto Rico. Legend Vega is an experienced singer, songwriter, and model. She has just finished recording her newest CD with all of her own material, Jump Into My Heart, which features a broad mix of pop / hot AC music recorded in English but with many Latin influences. Her mainstream American style and her Latin background make her an excellent crossover artist for the diverse U.S. market.

Legend has sung in a variety of venues from Caribbean resorts to outdoor festivals, and even on Broadway. She has performed with famous artists such as Elton John as an opening act at the Conquistador. On Broadway she performed as the lead vocalist in “Tony and Tina’s Wedding” where she sang 32 songs nightly under director Larry Pellegrini. She has also exhibited her vocal skills as a duet partner and backup singer on various CDs for other artists.

In addition to her talents on stage, she also enjoys writing songs. She identifies themes, composes the lyrics, and develops the melody for all of her works. She has also been very involved in the arrangements of each of the songs on her new album. She has completed a multitude of songs in a wide variety of styles (Pop, Rock, Romantic Ballads, Salsa, etc.)

“What I really love about singing is being able to reach into someone’s soul and touch their life in a special way. By writing my own music, I feel that I can do this even better – it’s as if I am having a very personal and intimate conversation with each of my listeners.” -- Legend

Legend has an energetic and alluring on-stage presence as a dancer. She has performed concerts in styles ranging from classical ballet to Brazilian samba. She has performed solo dance shows and sang with artists such as world renowned flute player Nestor Torrez.

“My real passion is singing. For me, dancing is just the way my voice radiates its influence through my body. Dancing is a natural extension of the sound of my music.” -- Legend

In addition to her musical and dance talents, she also has the physical look necessary for mainstream pop marketability. She is an experienced and successful model. She has appeared in print ads (perfume, hair, clothing, etc.), television commercials (beer, hair, etc.) and live fashion shows (Victoria Secrets, etc.). Although modeling is not her main focus, her style and appearance is a plus to her on-stage audience appeal.

Legend has a bachelor’s degree in TV and film production, and has also studied classical opera and composition at the Conservatory of Puerto Rico. She has hosted a television series about music topics (House of Rock) and produced a pilot for her own music show (Latino Connection). She has also had small cameo appearances in a variety of other television programs.

The music for her albums La Traidora (Spanish) and Jump Into My Heart was recorded in San Juan under the leadership of Grammy award winner, Ramon Martinez. In addition to writing all of the music, Legend produced all of the songs along with Joaquin Fernandez. The instrumentals feature such well known musicians as Januse Bakun (bass player for Ricky Martin and Mark Anthony), Reynaldo Torres (drummer for Luis Fonsi), Rey Reyes (singer for Menudo), Joseph Fonseca, Aldo Mata, and many others.

Lyrics

Baby You're The One

Written By: Legend Vega

I woke up one morning completely sad
Without a smile, without desire
Without suspecting that you would be there
Waiting for me

Lost in my thoughts, I asked myself
If I should stay or run away
Poems describe a life of endless love
Do you think this is real

Baby, you’re the one I want
If I’m the one you really need
And if you feel it more than once
Then let me be your destiny

Baby, you’re the one for me
So don’t you ever set me free
If I tell you what I want
Would you still stand right next to me

Although this feeling comes from faded pain
With all the love I feel inspired
I wasn’t thinking that you really cared
But you listened to me

I was distracted all by myself
Should I complain or hide the pain
I want a life with you of endless love
So could this be real

Baby you’re the one I want
If I’m the one you really need
And if you feel it more than once
Then let me be your destiny

Baby you’re the one for me
So don’t you ever set me free
If I tell you what I want
Would you still stand right next to me

Nothing matters anymore
Next to you is where I belong
Oh, Baby, Baby, Baby

Do you know how I truly feel, my love
With the fire in my heart
It will never fall apart

Baby you’re the one I want
If I’m the one you really need
And if you feel it more then once
Then let me be your destiny

Baby, you’re the one for me
So don’t you ever set me free
If I tell you what I want
Would you still stand right next to me

Baby you’re the one I want
If I’m the one you really need
And if you feel it more then once
Then let me be your destiny

Baby, you’re the one for me
Baby don't, baby don't ever set me free
If I tell you what I want
Would you still stand right next to me

If you fall love
I will be your Caribbean girl

It's what I want, yea
It's what I want, yea

It's what I want, yea
It's what I want, yea

Jump Into My Heart

Written By: Legend Vega

I'm looking forward to meet a man
Someone, I can trust inside my heart
I want a prince with a sensitive mind
Someone, who will fight for what he wants
Don't look before you leap

I'll leave the door of my heart unlocked
But I'm too scared to invite you in
I may say no, but I want you to try
Trust your instincts, to show you the way
Don't look before you leap

Jump into my heart and prove to me
That you want our love eternally
Jump into my heart, put your fears away
This is a test you must face today
Don't be shy, don't you dare, if you love me

Let's not be like the sun and the moon
Inspiring others high up in the sky
Always alone, chasing their own dreams
Join me in an eclipse of love
Don't look before you leap

Jump into my heart and prove to me
That you want our love eternally
Jump into my heart, put your fears away
This is a test you must face today

Jump into my heart and prove to me
That you want our love eternally
Jump into my heart, put your fears away
This is a test you must face today
Don't be shy, don't you dare, if you love me

Cause you’re the reason of my love
I need you to understand
If I'm the one you really want
If it’s worth our love
If you believe in me

Jump into my heart and prove to me
That you want our love eternally
Jump into my heart, put your fears away
This is a test you must face today

I need your love
Baby, you’re the one for me
You belong to me

Jump into my heart and prove to me
That you want our love eternally
Jump into my heart, put your fears away
This is a test you must face today

Jump into my heart and prove to me
That you want our love eternally
Jump into my heart, put your fears away
This is a test you must face today

Golden Angel

Written By: Legend Vega

Old blonde lady
For whom suicide may be
Her only escape, from all of the pain

Green eyed baby
Who burden’s so heavy
With death on his shoulders

She feels frozen on the inside
With a breath of life
Baptize me, and then promise me
That I will shine much brighter than yesterday

The moon rose in the sky
Alongside the pain
She arrived in the world
She was born of my soul

Golden Angel, that’s my identity
Golden Angel, I am
Golden Angel, that’s what’s inside of me
Golden Angel, I

Old blonde lady
For whom suicide may be
Her only escape, from all of the pain

Green eyed baby
Who burden’s so heavy
With death on his shoulders

The moon rose in the sky
Along side the pain
She arrived in the world
She was born of my soul

Golden Angel, that’s my identity
Golden Angel, I am
Golden Angel, that’s what’s inside of me
Golden Angel, I

Man from the darkness
Whose mind is perverted
Man from the darkness
Man who wants to steal my happiness

The moon rose in the sky
Along side the pain
She arrived in the world
She was born of my soul

Golden Angel, that’s my identity
Golden Angel, I am
Golden Angel, that’s what’s inside of me
Golden Angel, I

Golden Angel, that’s my identity
Golden Angel, I am
Golden Angel, that’s what’s inside of me
Golden Angel, I
