Bee, Celi

She is a singer-songwriter born Celida Ines Camacho in New York City and moving to Puerto Rico at a young age.

She married the bandleader and songwriter Pepe Luis Soto in the 1960s, who she sang with in a duo, and he acted as her mentor on her road to success.

She had her first hit with “Yo Quiero un Pincel” but did not achieve much public recognition until she emerged onto the disco scene scoring hits such as “Half a Love” and “Superman”. She sang guest vocals for some tracks by The Rice & Beans Orchestra, which was owned by her husband, and she recorded her last album Como Agua y Arena in 1986.

Her marriage broke up around 1979 and it has been said that Puerto Rico mourned the divorce. She is currently living in Miami, Florida and is a volunteer in the Dade County School system teaching music in underprivileged neighbourhoods.
