Wiki

Olga Teresa Tañón Ortíz (born April 13, 1967 in Santurce, Puerto Rico) is a two-time Grammy Award and three-time Latin Grammy-winning Merengue and Latin Pop artist. Tañón has earned 5 Latin Grammy Awards and 19 Premios Lo Nuestro awards during her career.

Tañón is the youngest of four children born to José Tañón and Carmen Gloria Ortíz. Much of her life, her middle-class family lived in Levittown, Puerto Rico. Her childhood and teenage years were just like that of any other average child; the only difference was that Tañón wanted to be a singer.

Tañón's singing career started when she joined a group called Las Nenas de Ringo y Jossie (Ringo and Jossie's Girls) in the 1980s. A short time later a very popular group in Puerto Rico called Chantelle noticed her mezzo soprano voice and recruited her. They saw in her what they needed for their merengue style of music. When Tañón was a member of Chantelle, they scored their biggest hit, "Aunque Tú no Quieras" (Even If You Don't Want It), which was popular in Latin America.
