La Lupe (aka La Yiyiyi, born Guadalupe Victoria Yolí Raymond, 23 Dec 1936 - d. 1992) was a Latin & salsa singer. Born in the barrio of San Pedrito, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba - her father was a worker at the local Bacardi distillery and was a major influence on her life. He strictly encouraged her to become a school teacher. Just like her counterpart, Celia Cruz, she was a schoolteacher before she became a singer.
