Shawn Elliott Santiago (March 1937–March 11, 2016) was an American actor and former singer.
Elliott was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, and grew up in New York City's East Harlem area.
Elliott had a hit in Europe with a cover of Sir Lancelot's "Shame And Scandal In The Family" in 1965. The cover failed to chart in America where English comedian Lance Percival's version charted. However Peter Tosh and the Wailers, as well as the Blues Busters, copied the arrangement used by Elliot in preparing their own later covers of the song.
- "Shame And Scandal In The Family", B-side "Josephine" 1965
- "Child Is Father To The Man", 1971
After his last single Elliott turned increasingly to acting. He is known for his role as Eduardo Fernandez, father of Alex (David López) and Gaby Fernandez (Mayteana Morales) on the TV show Ghostwriter. His most recent role was in the movie Arbitrage.
Elliott died on March 11, 2016 at the age of 79.
