Monna Bell, a popular Chilean singer who achieved success in Mexico and Spain in the 1970s and was one of Mexican pop star Juan Gabriel’s muses, died on Monday in Tijuana of a stroke.
Her friend, actress Carmen Salinas, announced the news:
“I’m very upset. Monna was a great friend, a great woman, and she had an unmatchable voice. Her family informed me today that she passed away on Monday.”
Bell arrived in Mexico in the 1970s after achieving success in Spain. Spanish director Pedro Almodovar included her song “Estaba Escrito” in his 1980s classic “Pepi, Luci, Bom Y Otras Chicas Del Monton”.
