Evangelina Sobredo Galanes, known as Cecilia, (Madrid, October 11 1948 - Benavente, August 2 1976) was a Spanish singer-songwriter. She took her stage name from a song by Simon and Garfunkel.

The daughter of diplomats, she spent her childhood in several countries and was raised by an American nun. She attained a bachelor's degree in law in Spain before deciding to dedicate herself to music and composition. Her ironic and lyrical songs, sung in a tiny voice, contributed to the existentialist and feminist movements of Spanish canción protesta (protest songs) of the 1960s and 1970s.

She represented Spain in the OTI Festival in 1975 with the song "Amor de medianoche" (Love of Midnight). She died in a road accident in 1976 and was buried in the Madrilenian Cementerio de la Almudena. She had been working on several artistic projects, such as a tribute to Ramón del Valle-Inclán, before she died. There have been various posthumous compilations and a re-edition of her songs sung by famous artists like Merche Corisco, Miguel Bosé, Ana Belén, Manolo Tena and Julio Iglesias in 1996.
