Happy Birthday to Jennifer Lopez

She’s achieved the iconic one word celebrity handle:  J-Lo.  Jennifer Lopez was born in New York City, USA, on July 24, 1969, to parents of Puerto Rican heritage.  Her parents had hoped her career path would be college and law school, but Jennifer chose song, dance and theater.  Her breakout acting role was in the film “Selena” when she starred as Selena Quintanilla Perez, the murdered Tejano singer.  J-Lo has been honored with the American Latino Media Arts Award (ALMA), the Image Award of the National Association for the Advancement for Colored People (NAACP), and American Music Awards, among many others.  The savvy business woman is now managing corporate endorsements while raising two young twins.  We hope that Jennifer has time to enjoy her birthday.
