Lina Santiago

Lina Santiago (born on September 5, 1978 in Los Angeles, California) was a female freestyle\dance singer from the mid 90's. Not much information is given on this talented singer.

In 1996, Lina released her debut album, "Feels So Good" on Universal Records, which peaked at #29 on Billboard's Heatseekers albums chart.
The title song became Lina's only hit to date, peaking at #35 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April of 1996, #6 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart in April of 1996, #63 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in March of 1996, #4 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart, #33 on Billboard's Top 40 Mainstream chart, and #7 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart.
Lina's follow-up single, "Just Because I Love You" peaked at #78 on the Billboard Hot 100 in September of 1996 and #27 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart.
A promo single, "Dale Que Dale" was released, but didn't chart even though a music video was made for it. After that, it seems as if Lina has faded into obscurity.
