Lucecita Benítez


Lucecita was a member of what is historically known in Puerto Rico as the New Wave, or Nueva Ola of popular music, created by Alfred D. Herger, alongside Lissette and Chucho Avellanet, among others. She was a participant of Telemundo channel 2’s El Club del Clan (The Clan’s Club) television show, and she occasionally would show up at the Show de Las 12 (12 O’ Clock Show) to sing too. In 1964, she had her first major hit, with the song “Un Lugar Para los Dos” (“A Place For Both of Us”). This was a cover song of Dusty Springfield’s “I Only Want To Be With You”, but sung in Spanish by Lucecita.
