The Iconic Singer and Actress, Cynthia Basinet Petitions the United Nations
(Published: October 11, 2016)

NEW YORK - The iconic singer, actress, activist, Cynthia Basinet, best known for the most popular version of "Santa Baby" returns to the United Nation for the 10th occasion on behalf of issues facing the Western Sahara.

From the UN official site:

"CYNTHIA BASINET, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and social change activist, warned that 16 years into a new century, the international community could "ill afford the cost of the voiceless". The World could not flourish if societies were alienated, she said, adding that "our enemies are those whom we alienate and not embrace, for they, too, are part of the solution". She said the struggle of the Sahrawi had strengthened her own fight; emphasizing that the time had come for a referendum in Western Sahara, as agreed in 1991.."

Cynthia visited the W. Sahara in 2001 in efforts to raise awareness for the Saharwian refugees living in peaceful self-determination.

She was subsequently nominated for a shared Nobel Peace Prize as part of the "1000 PeaceWomen Across the Globe".

Always on the forefront of social eco trends, Cynthia's stylistic influence can be witnessed in fashion to music and social media.

The LA native is best known for her jazzy pop stylings on her hits like, "Going Out Of My Head" and the sultry hit, "Santa Baby" recorded in 1997 and often miscredited to Marilyn Monroe.

Her latest single, a dance anthem, "All Of Me", remix of John Legend's hit ballad now has fans jumping to their feet.
