Jose Feliciano Puerto Rico/ Alfred Ho Malaysia

Jose Feliciano, born blind, is a celebrity guitarist and singer with many international hit songs. After he went to the U.S. from Puerto Rico, he finally scored with "Light My Fire" which became a hit parade single.
The next recording, a Christmas album with "Feliz Navidad", spelled another success. "Old Turkey Buzzard" and "California Dreamin", became as well-known. Feliciano sings with much intensity and fervour, especially when he rolls off his lyrics in Spanish.
A Malaysian in the same category is Alfred Ho who he has been compared to Feliciano. Both are from the 60s pop era, both are blind and both play the guitar well.
