Noel Pagan (also known as Noel) is a Puerto Rican American and Spanish male Latin freestyle singer born in the Bronx, New York. "Silent Morning" became his first Top-10 hit on the dance singles chart and peaked at #47 on the Hot 100 in 1987. "Like a Child" peaked at #67 in 1988, but it became his first number-one single on the dance chart.
He topped the dance charts again later that year with "Out of Time." In 1990, Noel worked with Tony Moran on his project Concept of One, with Noel being the featured vocalist. The single was released as "The Question" by Concept of One featuring Noel, and it got heavy airplay in clubs, on dance stations, and hit the dance charts.
1993 saw the release of Noel's second CD, Hearts On Fire, which released Mercury Records. It represented a change in styles for Noel, leaning more on pop than dance/freestyle. It was not a success, and Noel was dropped from the label. Noel continues to perform and record music. In 2001, Noel teamed up with Trance producer Ford for the single "When Will I Find True Love?"
