As a result, she was invited to perform during a Mass at The Vatican for Pope John Paul II. When Mass neared its close and she still hadn't been given her chance to sing, she decided to interrupt the proceedings so that she could command the attention of the Pope, for whom she began to sing. Pope John Paul II then allowed her to finish her song and after mass, he approached Ana Bárbara, blessed, and wished her luck in her career.
In 1994, she was noticed by record execs from Fonovisa, one of the top labels in the Regional Mexican market.

Two alternate versions of song Rompiendo Cadenas premiered on iTunes, one in Banda and another in Acustic version. Rompiendo Cadenas became the album's most notable hit.
When Ana Bárbara introduced Rompiendo Cadenas to the Associated Press in January 2010 she described why the early departure from Fonovisa Records since she was still under contract for one more album. Ana Bárbara stated that Fonovisa perceived her material as "too risky" because she was "author and producer of all tracks." The album also revealed the biggest genre challenge to date for Ana Bárbara and her fanbase. Furthermore, Fonovisa Records request to reconsider and change the style or terminate the contract.

The track included rock and pop versions, but neither sparked much interest in radio or the general public. Ana Bárbara later explained that the song was originally written and intended for pop diva Gloria Trevi, but when her eldest son Emiliano reassured her confidence, she decided to take the new challenge, record the track, and make it her own.

2010–2011 car accidents
In recent years, Ana Bárbara remained a fixture of celebrity gossip more because of her personal life than her talent. In late July 2010, she was involved in a car accident in Cancún, Mexico, that left a 79-year-old woman dead; the incident sparked a media circus. Authorities arrested Ana Bárbara's driver (bodyguard and family friend). Some eyewitnesses, however, told the victim's family that it was Ana Bárbara who was driving. She denied the accusations and any wrongdoing. Due to immense media pressure, Ana Bárbara granted network Televisa an exclusive interview where she broke down in tears and oferred the family a public apology about the terrible accident. She also stated that on-scene police authorities allowed her to leave the scene since they had apprehended the driver. The victim's daughter used several media outlets to blast Ana Bárbara and accuse her of being the driver. Ana Bárbara was exonerated after Mexican authorities found no evidence that could have linked her behind the wheel. She faced civil charges for being the registered owner of the vehicle involved in the accident. In December 2010, Mexico's CNDH (Human Resources National Committee) recommended that the governor and Municipal President of Quintana Roo review the case after a petition was filed by the victim's family claiming investigative fallacies.

Ana Bárbara said she expects to be criticized for her decision to have a child without a father and that she won’t let the criticism bother her. "I felt my puzzle was missing a piece and now it's complete," she told the Méxican edition of ¡Hola! magazine.
