Úrsula Hilaria Celia Caridad Cruz Alfonso, (born October 21, 1925, Havana, Cuba—died July 16, 2003, Fort Lee, New Jersey, U.S.), Cuban American singer who reigned for decades as the “Queen of Salsa Music,” electrifying audiences with her wide-ranging soulful voice and rhythmically compelling style.
After the Cuban Revolution of 1959, Havana’s nightlife all but disappeared. Along with the other members of La Sonora Matancera, Cruz left Cuba for Mexico and then the United States, eventually settling in New Jersey.
Success came after Cruz became identified with salsa…azuuuuuuuucahhhh!
