Fantine is no stranger to success: She’s opened for soul siren Erykah Badu and hip-hop wild child Lupe Fiasco, followed by headlining honors in Australia and New Zealand. Now she’s looking to make a name for herself stateside. Fresh from lending her singing talents to the 16-piece Moscow Jazz Orchestra, Fantine is in the midst of a whirlwind promotional tour supporting her R&B hit “Reservation For Two” alongside her Latin single “Bachata De Rosa”. Her high-flying vocal range and lyrical depth make her a versatile force to be reckoned with. Look out for her Estefan-produced bilingual album, I Am Fantine, or catch her American debut performance at Gusman Concert Hall Nov. 1 during Festival Miami; 305.284.4940; FestivalMiami.com.

Some of the most unforgettable experiences for Rodrigo Vianna, MD, PhD, are when he comes across a patient who is now an adult and he performed a transplant on them as a baby. Seeing them older, living healthy lives, doing the things they love, is an ongoing inspiration.
