London - October 4, 20019. To mark the 10th anniversary of Mercedes Sosa’s death, Danish author, Anette Christensen, has published the first biography in English about the Argentine singer and activist.

Mercedes Sosa was one of the most recognized artists in international music, and collaborated with musicians ranging from Luciano Pavarotti, Sting and Joan Baez. Blacklisted as being one the most dangerous people to the regime in Argentina in the 1970s, she became the underground reference point for the poor and oppressed, and an icon of democracy who fought South America’s dictators with her voice. Anette Christensen first heard about Mercedes Sosa on October 4, 2009, when her death was announced on the news. Even so, the encounter with Mercedes Sosa changed the author's life and Christensen has immersed herself into Sosa's life and music ever since.

Mercedes Sosa – More than a Song, reveals how a girl raised in a poor Indian working class family sang her way to influence and explores the secret behind Sosa’s remarkable impact and captivating charisma which her fans often referred to as a “mystical presence.” Christensen draws a psychological profile that reveals how Sosa’s upbringing, political circumstances and personal tragedies formed her life and her career.

“Mercedes Sosa was a world-class performer, whose influence went far beyond the borders of music. On a personal level her life shows that it is possible to bounce back from afflictions as a more resilient and authentic person. On a social level Sosa awakens us and revolutionizes our hearts and our conscience and inspires us to become better people who want to make this world a better and more just place for everyone. Her integrity, courage and solidarity make her a role model who points out the path to a more emphatic and compassionate world. It makes her more relevant than ever.” Christensen says.

Nicknamed, “The Voice of the Voiceless”, Sosa emerged as a legend in Latin America, but remained an unsung hero in the English speaking world, where it is her version of “Gracias a la Vida” that comes to mind when her name is mentioned. The lack of information in English motivated the author to write and publish this biography. Mercedes Sosa – More than a Song is a product of Christensen’s research and observations over the past decade. Christensen has been in contact with Sosa’s family, friends and fans and included some of their stories.

"A new and touching perspective on our beloved Mercedes. It is a heartfelt and affectionate tribute honoring the life of my mother.”-Fabián Matus, son of Mercedes Sosa and president of The Mercedes Sosa Foundation.

Mercedes Sosa – More than a Song is available worldwide in English and Spanish from all major online stores such as Amazon, Book Depository, Barnes & Noble and many more. It can also be purchased from physical bookstores in the US, UK, Canada, Spain, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Find all the stores at
