Gina Rodríguez's Love Letter to Rita Moreno at the Kennedy Center Honors

"Your bright smile, your fierce persona, that independent voice that burst through every performance and every interview. I just wanted to be just like Rita. You gave me hope, you gave me a reason to fight and to speak up, you gave me a voice and how can I thank you? I’m not sure how, but I can tell you this: when you followed your dreams, Rita, you gave me the allowance to follow mine." –GINA RODRÍGUEZ, to Kennedy Center Honoree RITA MORENO at the Kennedy Center Honors
