The Spanish folk artist Cecilia was born Evangelina Sobredo Galanes in Madrid, on October 11, 1948. The daughter of diplomats, she spent many of her early years traveling internationally. Through active travel she learned English, and subsequently most of her early songs were written in that language. In 1970 she formed a group called Expresion, with whom she recorded her first singles. Cecilia continued to record through 1970 and 1971 for CBS before recording her self-titled debut in 1972. Throughout the mid- to late '70s, she continued to write songs that met with success and acclaim. In 1976, Cecilia was killed in a car accident as she returned from a concert in Vigo. ~ Evan C.
