Grammy Winner Feliciano Reports Harassing Calls

Friday, 05 Feb 2010 05:20 PM


Grammy-winner Jose Feliciano has told Florida authorities that he and a caregiver have received a series of harassing phone calls telling him to "get out."

Feliciano, who composed the popular Christmas song "Feliz Navidad," met with a Lee County Sheriff's deputy Tuesday. According to an incident report, the 64-year-old Feliciano said he had received two calls on his cell phone. The singer says a male with a muffled voice told him he had to "get out."

The caregiver also reported receiving similar calls directed toward Feliciano.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.

The Puerto Rico native was raised in New York City and wrote "Feliz Navidad" in 1970. It is one of the most popular Christmas songs in the world.
