José Montserrate Feliciano García(born September 10, 1945) is a blind Puerto Rican singer, virtuoso guitarist and composer, known for many international hits including the 1970 holiday single “Feliz Navidad

In 1970, he wrote and released an album of Christmas music, Feliz Navidad, which may be deemed to be his most famous recording. The title song has been covered by many artists and is now a traditional part of the musical landscape in the U.S, Canada and Latin America around Christmas time. Each year during the Christmas season, “Feliz Navidad” returns to US airwaves, one of the most-played and most-downloaded radio songs and downloaded songs of the season. “Feliz Navidad” is also recognized by ASCAP as one of the 25 all-time most-played Christmas songs in the world.

In 1971, he traveled to Italy to participate in the Sanremo Music Festival, singing the song “Che sarà” in Italian, earning second place in that contest as well as a standing ovation by the Italian public. He later recorded the song, which became a well-known act in Italy, a great hit in half of Europe, including the Iron Curtain countries, as well as in Asia. Feliciano later recorded it in Spanish as “Qué Será”, becoming a hit in all of Central and South America, and in English as “Shake a Hand”, a big hit in Scandinavian countries.
