Personal Details

Alternate Names:

Soraya Arnelas

Did You Know?


Earned the mean-spirited nickname of "Soyaya" or "Soyaya Poyeya" after her mispronunciation of the chorus of the song "Vivo por ella", the Spanish version of Andrea Bocelli's "Vivo per lei", which she sang with David Bustamante. Soraya, who pronounced "Vivo por ella" as "Vivo poyeya", said afterwards that it had been because of microphone malfunction.
