During her 20 years of artistic career, with more than 10 million albums sold, 16 released albums and 30 singles in radio’s Top 10 hits, Alejandra Guzmán has earned the title of La Reina del Rock (The Queen of Rock). She is the daughter of two Latin entertainment legends: Movie icon Silvia Pinal and Rock and Roll legend Enrique Guzmán, from whom she inherits her talent and passion for arts, music, dance and constant spiritual growth.

Throughout her career, she has performed with legendary acts like James Brown (1997, Hard Rock Live Cancun) opened for Rolling Stones (2006, Monterrey, Mexico), acted as spokesperson of the campaign, “Your Rock is to Vote” promoting the right to vote among young people (2006) and participated in publicity campaigns for internationally renowned brands such as Miller Light, Jeep, Kraft and MAC Cosmetics.

In 2006 Alejandra also began to raise funds destined to finance alcohol and drugs rehabilitation programs and in May 2008, Alejandra acted as spokesperson for the SER campaign (SPTI) to promote breast cancer awareness.

In 2011, Alejandra Guzmán celebrated 20 years of success with the release of her live album Alejandra Guzmán, 20 Años de Éxitos en Vivo con Moderatto (CD/DVD). The album includes “Día de Suerte”, theme song for the soundtrack of the Mexican Televisa soap opera Una Familia con Suerte, in which Alejandra appeared as guest star in several episodes and granted her several number ones on the radio charts. The album was recorded live in early 2011 at Mexico City’s grand Palacio de los Deportes (Sports Palace), featuring a unique audiovisual experience on stage and includes musical collaborations by artists like rap star, Vico-C, who joined Alejandra to perform a new version of her classic “Mala Hierba” and the late “Diva de la Banda”, Jenni Rivera in a new interpretation of Alejandra’s longtime hit “Eternamente Bella”. Alejandra Guzmán, 20 Años de Éxitos en Vivo con Moderatto (CD/DVD) successfully toured throughout Mexico, the United States, Central and South America.
