Half a Love

(Pepe Luis Soto)

This song was written by Pepe Luis Soto in the mid 1970s and recorded by his wife Celi Bee, who was still known as Celida at the time.

After winning the Festival de la Voz y La Canzon in 1972 and releasing an album, Celida and her husband relocated to the UK.  She recorded an album in England using the name Celida and this provided the single “Half a Love”.

Although there was little interest in the UK and Ireland, the song became successful in Spain and Puerto Rico, and heightened her popularity from being a well known Latin pop star to a “disco diva”.

The single is now one of the songs included on the compilation Celi Bee’s Greatest Hits.
