IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: REGINA SPEKTOR

Rate this Entry

Here's a new feature I've thought about for a while. Immigrants make contributions in every aspect of American society - the arts, academia, business, sports, politics, etc. People need to be reminded of this as we make the case that immigration is good for America. The folks I will profile came to America in a variety of different ways - as work visa holders, via the green card lottery, illegally, as refugees and via family sponsorship. And I'll try and focus not just on the most famous people, but newer immigrants making their mark in their fields. I'd love to hear your suggestions so please speak up with your recommendations.



I start the series off with Regina Spektor, one of my favorite singers. One day I was in Starbucks and heard a her hit song 'Fidelity' and had to find out more about the singer. A quick trip to Wikipedia really left me surprised. Spektor is a Russian-Jewish emigre who entered the US with her family in refugee status and she was resettled with the assistance of HIAS, an organization on whose board I serve.



Spektor is a rising star in the music world and if you have not heard her music yet, you soon will.

    Thanks. The more of these lists the better and as I intend to feature a different person every day, I'll need lists like theirs for ideas. And I'll want your ideas as well. The person need not be famous if their contributions are, nevertheless, important.

    My list will also be for people still alive. I've seen other lists that feature historical figures like Albert Einstein. Those are nice, but not what I had in mind.
