Wrong Celia Cruz

NPR has a really cool story and excellent music recommendations dealing with the late great Celia Cruz. The article by Stephanie Fernandez (titled The World Of Celia Cruz: A Turning The Tables Playlist) is accompanied by a photograph credited to "Tom Copi/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images" has a nice phot of Celia.

The only issue is that the photo is captioned as "Celia Cruz performs in 1950" which is incorrect to the most casual Celiz Cruz fan.  The Celia Cruz in that image is a Celia from either the late 1970s or early 1980s, not the twenty-something Celia Cruz of 1950 which made its debut with La Sonora Matancera.

Because I am a Virgo and sometimes live in a pedantic hell of perfection, I've contacted NPR to bring this error to their attention and have them use a correct image of Celia.

Hundreds of them here.
