Sultry "Santa Baby" Singer, Actress and Humanitarian Cynthia Basinet Returns to Petition the United Nations.
(Published: October 07, 2017)

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 11th occasion on behalf of issues facing the Western Sahara.

From the UN official site:

"CYNTHIA BASINET, Nobel Peace Prize-nominated entertainer and humanitarian, said she was advocating on behalf of Sahrawi intellectual property and against "fake news". The rigged media benefited the 1 per cent, she said, emphasizing that it had been the Sahrawi cause that had ignited her interest in media activism. Progress on that cause had been blocked for 16 years by the rigged media, she said. The Sahrawi must be prized and protected, having endured so much, she said, while reiterating that intellectual property was a human right."

Cynthia visited the Western 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 CD "The Standard" hits like, "The Christmas Song", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Going Out Of My Head" and the sultry hit, "Santa Baby" recorded in 1997 for love Jack Nicholson and often miscredited to Marilyn Monroe.

Cynthia's iconic version can be heard in soundtracks and has been embraced by artists and fans, worldwide for decades.

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

Look for Cynthia's re-release of her heartbreak ballad "Eventually" out November 10.
