José Monserrate Feliciano García, better known simply as José Feliciano, is a Puerto Rican musician, singer and composer, best known for many international hits, including his rendition of The Doors’ Light My Fire and the best-selling Christmas single, Feliz Navidad. His music is known for its fusion of styles: Latin, jazz, blues, soul and even rock, created primarily with his unique, signature acoustic guitar sound.
