Meritxell Negre Says "Adios" to Peaches and Herb and Welcomes Fans to

Hi Friends,

Although a short stint, it's been a really exciting journey to have performed for you in the past 14 months as "Peaches." But good things must come to an end. On that note, I'm officially announcing my regrettable departure from Peaches and Herb.

On February 13, 2010, I did my last performance with Peaches and Herb at the KLUC's 4th Annual Valentine's Love Affair at the Orleans Arena, Las Vegas. We headlined along with Heatwave in an electrifying nearly 4-hour concert, which included Evelyn Champagne King, Blue Magic, and many others. And it was such a pleasure to perform one last time with Herb singing such greats like “Reunited,” “Shake Your Groove Thing,” and “I Pledge Your Love."

I'm also very grateful to the many wonderful fans in the U.S. and Canada who have graciously embraced me, a non-African American artist from Barcelona Spain, as one of the contributors to the "Oldies-but-Goodies" genre. I'm honored to have co-recorded for you, the Peaches and Herb's fan club, Peaches & Herb's latest CD of the past 23-years, "Colors of Love" through Imagen Records.

On another note friends, my departure from Peaches and Herb also marks a new beginning for singer-songwriter, Meritxell Negre. Since recently relocating from the DC area to Los Angeles, I've been one busy lady. Aside from The Source and The Meritxell Project, I'm now in the process of forming up another variety band. And the Latin Queen of Soul looks forward to continue giving all of my followers, nothing but top-quality musical entertainment.

In closing, this will be my last "New Peaches" blog. However, keep tuning in to my new website: features music, photos, and videos of Yours Truly.

Soon the site will also include a link for fans to follow to the "Latin Queen of Soul Blog." So remember to drop by to and say hello, and do leave your comments.


P.S. Again, DON'T FORGET to show me some love at my new website:
