1) A Puerto Rican Singer.Read More...
Lunna (birth name: Maria Socorro Garcia de la Noceda) was born and raised by both her parents in Ponce, Puerto Rico a city which is located in the southern part of the island. While in elementary school, she learned how to play the guitar and in 1973, her mother had her take private singing lessons. She loved to sing and was considered by many to very talented. Her friends in high school would call her by her nickname "Socky", which was short for her middle name Socorro. 
In 1978, Socky auditioned and was accepted in a group called Allegro, a locally popular group which included singer Tito Lara. Besides singing for Allegro, she also landed jobs singing radio and television commercials. Socey eventually decided to leave the group and sing solo. Her agent recommended that she change her artistic name and that's when she adopted the name of "Lunna". 
She met and became romantically involved with Puerto Rican rock and roll teen idol, Charlie Robles. This romance was highly publicized in Puerto Rico and soon they were married. Sockey and Charlie had a daughter from this marriage; however, things didn't go well in the marriage and the couple ended up in divorce.
In 1981, Lunna went to Lima, Peru, to represent Puerto Rico at the OTI Festival, with the song "Eres Mi Musica" (You're My Music). Her fame soared in Puerto Rico, but her career was interrupted because of personal reasons. After four years of absence from the world of music, Glenn Monroig, a fellow singer, convinced her to return. Together they recorded the album "A Todo Dar" (Everything Gives), the first digitally produced album in Puerto Rico. The album was renamed "Motivos" (Motives) and was produced by Angel "Cuco" Peña, it became a big "hit" in Puerto Rico. Among the songs included in the album was the song "Yo Perdi" (I Lost). "Yo Perdi" made Puerto Rican musical history, when it became the "first" Puerto Rican song to be converted into a musical video, filmed in 35 mm. In 1983, Lunna married "Cuco" Peña, with whom she had three children, Gabriel, Juan and Angel (they later divorced). 
In 1987, Lunna was signed by A&M Records and recorded the following successful songs, "No Digas Nada" (Don't Say Anything), "Ni Princesa, Ni Esclava" (Nor Princess, Nor Slave) and "Fugitiva Amante" (Fugitive Lover). That same year, she was nominated for a Grammy Award. In 1988 and 1989, Lunna continued to score more "hits" with the recording of "Soledad" (Loneliness), "Quien No Ha Sentido..." (Who Hasn't Felt...) and with "Como Ser Amante" (How to be a Lover) written by Michael Bolton.
In 1992, Lunna reunited with Glen Monroig and together they recorded the album "Yo Que Te Adore" (I, Who Have Adored You). In 2003, Lunna recorded "Lunna de Bohemia", which included many classical boleros. That same year, she suffered a personal tragedy when her son died. Lunna, who is also a jazz lover, participated in the "Heineken Jazz Jam Session" and in the "Tropical Night at the Seaport".
