María de los Ángeles Felisa Santamaría Espinosa, better known professionally as Massiel, is a Spanish singer, actress and television personality.
She is best known for representing her country at the Eurovision Song Contest 1968 in London with the song La, La, La. She replaced the original performer Joan Manuel Serrat when he wasn't allowed to perform the song in Catalan as he desired (the Franco dictatorship ruling Spain at the time insisted that it could only be performed in Spanish). She ended up the surprise winner of the 1968 contest by 1 point over the heavily favorited United Kingdom performer Cliff Richard.
