Lorena Gomez Pérez (born April 12 1986) is a Spanish pop-soul singer, known artistically as "Lorena"
Lorena was the winner of the 2006 edition / fifth series of Spanish talent show, Operación Triunfo. The program consisted a similar format to reality TV shows like the X-Factor and American Idol. From the very start, Lorena was considered a strong favorite to win, impressing judges and audiences alike with her jaw-dropping renditions of "I Surrender" (Celine Dion), "Como Yo Te Amo" (Rocio Durcal) and, the performance-filled "Land of 1000 Dances."
In 2007, Lorena released her debut album, ''Lorena'' under Sony BMG. In 2008, she released her sophomore album, "De Pelicula". Her song entitled "Amor Magico" (a modern R&B Ballad with a required set of vocal pipes!) competed in the pre-selection to the Spanish entry in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. She finished 3rd overall after what was considered to be a very strong year for Spain song-wise.
Lorena's highly anticipated third studio album will consist a full set of original compositions comprising a 14-song-track-list. The promo-only non-official first single "Tras Las Luces" was released in January 2013.
