Cindy Shea is looking forward to a great year. The Hacienda Heights resident recently had her second son and she’s planning her wedding.

The local musician also has been nominated for another Grammy. Cindy is the founder of the popular Mariachi Divas. The all-woman band won a Grammy in 2009 for best regional Mexican album. And they had been nominated for another one.
