Yes I went there because some of ya'll need to be schooled! Irene Cara, the Academy Award Winning song writer of the infamous song "What A Feelin'" from the film Flashdance which she helped co-write. She's of Puerto Rican and Cuban decent and is also a singer, actor, and producer.
Some of you may know of her from Fame where she was Coco Hernandez.
Here she is performing the theme song for Fame
She's a part of a band called Hot Caramel today and hard core fans have been updating her Wikipedia page with all of her history that you can read about.
You can also follow her on Twitter!
