Yolandita Monge is an international singer-songwriter and actress from Puerto Rico and one of the first Puerto Rican female singers to be nominated for the Grammy Music Awards in 1987. She has been in the music business since adolescence, and has recorded over thirty albums through her career. She is widely recognized as one of Puerto Rico's Divas and one of the best selling artists in her homeland. Yolandita was claimed by the America's music magazine Billboard in 1988 as "The best-selling Latin artist of the year" due to being the first Puerto Rican female artist to sell millions of records. She also was claimed by the international music press as "The most important Latin singer of the decade" (1980–1990). NBC traveled all the way to Puerto Rico to interview Yolandita because they consider her the most relevant artist of the Latin music industry and she was even compared with Madonna. Yolandita established the records at the Performing Arts Center of Puerto Rico (Centro de Bellas Artes), becoming the biggest singer selling out all the concerts, without courtesy tickets, up to 12 concerts of the same tour in 1992, breaking her own record. In 1995, she teamed with singer Ricardo Montaner to do a concert and they earned a Guinness World Records as becoming the first singers to perform 3 concerts in 3 different cities (Mayagüez, Ponce and San Juan) - all in the same day. This could be done, using air transportation by helicopter. It was called: El Suceso (The Event).
