Who is Noelia?
Famous Puerto Rican pop singer born Noelia Lorenzo Monge under the zodiac sign Virgo on 31 August 1979, in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

She began showing interest in music at a very early age, and her mother thus enrolled her at school of the performing arts, at which she practiced both singing and acting. Noelia went on to attend a local high school, and was passionate about several activities during her time there, as she enjoyed playing sports with her friends, was on the school’s debating team, and appeared in a number of school plays.
She matriculated in 1997 and then enrolled at college, however, Noelia dropped out after a year, wanting to focus on making a name for herself in the music industry.
It was in 1998 that Noelia began recording her debut album “Noelia”, which came out on 16 February 1999 under Fonovisa Records; some of the other album’s singles (besides “Tu”) which were popular were “Demasiado Amor”, “Te Amo” and “Te Odio”, all songs about love.
Noelia’s second album “Golpeando Fuerte” was released on 5 December 2000, also under Fonovisa Records and comprised 10 songs, including the hit single “Ni Una Lagrima Mas” which was written by songwriter Estefano, who also wrote her previous hit “Tu”; the single peaked at #2 on Billboard Hot Latin Tracks.
