Cristian Castro

Five different songs topped the Billboard Latin Pop Airplay chart in 1994, and sixteen different tracks did the same in 1995. In October 1994, Billboard magazine established Latin Pop Airplay, a chart that ranks the top-performing songs played on Latin pop radio stations in the United States based on weekly airplay data compiled by Nielsen's Broadcast Data Systems. It is a subchart of Hot Latin Songs, which lists the best-performing Spanish-language songs in the country. The first song to reach number one on the Latin Pop Airplay chart was "Mañana" by Cristian Castro (pictured), which was composed and originally performed by Juan Gabriel. Castro was also the artist with the most number-one songs in 1995, with "Con Tu Amor", "Azul Gris" and "Vuélveme a Querer". Luis Miguel had two number-one songs on the chart in 1994, with "El Día Que Me Quieras" and "La Media Vuelta", the second of which was the final chart-topper of the year and the first at the start of 1995.

Sarah Bernhardt

Sarah Bernhardt (22 or 23 October 1844 – 26 March 1923) was a French stage actress who had lead roles in some of the most popular French plays of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Rostand called her "the queen of the pose and the princess of the gesture", while Hugo praised her "golden voice". She made several theatrical tours around the world, and was one of the first prominent actresses to make sound recordings and to act in motion pictures. This photograph by Nadar was taken around 1864.
