Adri Duque, singer who discovered music while volunteering at a prison in Medellin

It's spiritual pop carrying a message of hope. It's soothing, melodic and positive.

Her name is Adri Duque. She's a Colombian Catholic singer-songwriter who broke into the world of music just a year ago.

She received her vocation later, as she discovered it while volunteering in maximum-security prisons in Medellin. There she saw that singing could be a way to reach people's souls.

In November she released her latest work, “Gracias Maria,” “Thank you, Mary.”

“'Thank you, Mary' was born out of a deep love for the Mother of God and total admiration for her virtues.”

It's one of her most intimate works. The music video aims to reach audiences with a single scene capturing the experience of families with a devotion to the Blessed Mother. They pray before her image in their neighborhood parishes.

“The essence of this song is an act of thanksgiving. It's about thanking this woman, who, at such a young age, had an unbreakable faith and gave a firm 'yes' to God, which paved the way for the redemption of humanity.”

Adri Duque began her musical career a short time ago, but some of her music videos have already gotten over three million views. At this early stage, she's a singer with a lot of potential. That's why she's promised to release new songs this year.
