Marcela Morelo (born Marcela Morello on 13 December 1969), also known as La Morelo, is an Argentine singer-songwriter. She has released eight critically acclaimed studio albums, which all earned either Gold of Platinum record. Morelo also won five Gardel Awards, most prestigious musical awards in Argentina.


In 1997, she released her debut album, Manantial, featuring a collection of songs she had written. Several singles released from the album, including "La fuerza del engaño" ("The Power of Deceit") and "Corazón salvaje" ("Wild Heart") were chart hits not only in Argentina but in Europe and Latin American. The album was awarded a Gold Record after three months, and it eventually sold enough copies to receive a Platinum Record.

Further releases by Morelo, including Eclipse, Tu boca (Your mouth), and Invisible met with acclaim.

Morelo collaborated with Celia Cruz, Chichi Peralta, and Franco De Vita on a holiday-themed song, "Fuerte Navidad" ("Strong Christmas"). She recorded a duet with Miliki on his album "A mis niños de 30" ("To my children at 30"), entitled "Susanita" ("Susie", popular Spanish song for children) and with Rocío Dúrcal, Rosario, and Ana Torroja entitled "Mujer" ("Woman").
