A multi GRAMMY nominee and 2x GRAMMY winner is widely as the “Queen of Ranchera Music,” and “La Voz de México” (the Voice of Mexico) in her native country, she celebrates her 47th year as performer with this special show, “Yo Creo Que Es Tiempo” (“I Think It’s Time”), named for her 1983 hit written by her late mentor and producer, pop icon Juan Gabriel.
Much like Ella Fitzgerald’s classic releases for Verve, her “songbook” albums have played a central role in defining Mexican popular music. Over her career, she’s recorded an impressive 41 full-length albums that have sold internationally in excess of 11 million copies. In 2017 released her studio album “Arrieros Somos” (Versiones Acústicas), and became the first female mariachi vocalist to win a GRAMMY (for Best Regional Mexican Music Album).
Her two latest albums (2020 & 2021), Antología de la Musica Ranchera Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, feature her interpretations of the timeless songs made famous by the iconic 1930s ranchera singer Lucha Reyes and both made a GRAMMY nomination.
