Blessed Félix Manuel Rodríguez Coveró on January 1, 1922, in Puerto Rico, Capo afterwards relocated to NY, learning to be a musical idol throughout Latin America and Cuba with the 1940s. Although an associate from the renowned Xavier Cugat & His Orchestra, Capo appreciated his greatest achievement and notoriety being a single artist, scoring strikes with such compositions as “Piel Canela,” “Un Negro Bembón,” “Un Bardo,” “Luna de Miel en Puerto Rico,” “Sin Fe,” “Triángulo,” and “María Luisa,” along with the ballads “Llorando me Dormí,” “Sale un Sol,” and “Jacqueline,” the last mentioned tune focused on previous U.S. initial female Jacqueline Kennedy.
