Life and career
Early life and early career
Ana Bárbara showed immense musical potential from an early age. She was particularly influenced and inspired by her older sister, Viviana Ugalde, who was a popular singer locally. Today, Ugalde represents Ana Bárbara as part of her management team.
In 1988, Ana Bárbara entered the local Miss Universe-sponsored Miss Mexico beauty pageant representing her native state of San Luis Potosí and won; however, she lost at the national level.. By then, an unknown Altagracia Ugalde moved forward and began to seize any opportunity to sing at local talent shows, and at times professionally at variety of music events and festivals. In 1990 she had the opportunity to tour overseas in Colombia and represent Mexico's mariachi music.
In 1993, Ana Bárbara was proclaimed the Ambassador of Ranchera Music. She also earned the Rostro Bonito de El Heraldo ("El Heraldo's Beautiful Face") award. As a result, she was invited to perform for Pope John Paul II during a Mass at The Vatican. When Mass neared its close; however, she still hadn't been given an opportunity to sing, so she interrupted the proceedings, commanded the attention of the Pope, and began to sing. After mass Pope John Paul II approached Ana Bárbara, blessed her, and wished her luck in her career.
In 1994, Ana Bárbara was noticed by record execs from Fonovisa, one of the top labels in the Regional Mexican market. After signing with Fonovisa, she created artistic stage name 'Ana Bárbara' and launched her debut album. The self-titled Ana Bárbara was produced and largely written by Aníbal Pastor; it also included songwriting from idol Joan Sebastian. Songs like Sacúdeme and Nada helped make Ana Bárbara a Mexican Grupero star on the rise.
Ana Bárbara released her second album titled La Trampa in July 1995, also produced by Anibal Pastor. La Trampa soon became a commercial and radio hit. Ana Bárbara also began to receive her first industry accolades as well as invitations to tour and open for Mexican giants Vicente Fernandez and Los Tigres Del Norte. She also appeared on important Latin American television shows like Sabado Gigante and Siempre en Domingo. The sophomore album spawned consecutive hits and popular music videos, such as Me Asusta Pero Me Gusta and La Trampa, that topped "Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks" and established her as La Reina Grupera (Queen of Grupero Music).
By summer of 1996, Ana Bárbara broke through to mainstream international success with third album Ay, Amor, which solidified her as a successful Latin recording artist. Her attractive appearance and sensual dancing style captivated Latin America audiences during promotional tours with hit songs and music videos of No Lloraré and Ya No Te Creo Nada. Ay, Amor became her best album debut on the Latin Billboard charts.
In 1997 she released her first and only calendar. Coors Light beer also selected Ana Bárbara as their Hispanic promotional figure for marketing and advertising. Later that year she returned to Miami, Florida for the annual Calle 8 Music Festival where she was crowned "Queen" of the 1997 parade.
In 1998, Ana Bárbara released fourth album produced by singer songwriter and icon Marco Antonio Solís. The album, titled Los Besos No Se Dan En La Camisa, was largely a ballads album with only one Grupero-style song. The album included a duet and background vocals by Solís, as well as a 1982 Los Bukis cover of Como Me Haces Falta, which quickly became a commercial and popular hit. Como Me Haces Falta also dominated airwaves across Latin America, México, and the United States. The track is now a signature anthem in Ana Bárbara's catalog. Ana Bárbara toured alongside Regional Mexican giants Joan Sebastian, Limite, and Los Tigres del Norte.
In 1999, Ana Bárbara released fifth studio album Tu Decisión, produced by longtime collaborater Anibal Pastor. One of his two songwriting credits, Engañada, became the album's lead single and most popular hit. Tu Decisión was also notable in songwriting terms because it marked Ana Bárbara's debut as a songwriter. In the same year she also debuted as an actress, starring in the made-for-TV film Todo Contigo, via Hispanic network Televisa. The film's theme song Todo Contigo was included in the album Tu Decisión. The following year Ana Bárbara became the first female grupero act recognized by The Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences for album Tu Decisión, which received a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Grupero Performance.
In 2000, Ana Bárbara took a short break in order to dedicate time to birth of her first child, Emiliano.
She was briefly out of the limelight but quickly returned to the music scene in 2001 with sixth studio album Te Regalo La Lluvia. The Mariachi-ballad album was a challenge to her custom Grupero style; however, industry critics who had written off Ana Bárbara as simply a grupero novelty built chiefly upon sex appeal consequently took her and her music a bit more seriously. Later that year, Ana Bárbara participated in El Último Adiós (The Last Goodbye), a song written in memory of the 9/11 attacks, which included popular artists, such as Alejandro Fernández, Marco Antonio Solís, Thalía, and Ricky Martin, among others. As Ana Bárbara toured for Te Regalo La Lluvia, she began preparations for a Grupero-style album.
After several years as a recording artist, Ana Bárbara began producing her own material. She took control of the direction of her music and began to compose, arrange, and select her own lyrics and melodies, yet followed patterns of earlier albums.
In September 2003, Te Atraparé...Bandido was released; it became Ana Bárbara's most successful album to date. Soon record executives pushed for another album, and in May 2005 Ana Barbara produced and released Loca de Amar. Both releases sold millions and kept Ana Bárbara's career and touring on overdrive. With Te Atraparé...Bandido and Loca de Amar, popular chart-topping singles like Bandido, Deja, Loca, and Lo Busqué dominated airwaves across South America, Mexico, and the United States, as well as Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks. Their respective music videos also reached over 25 million combined views on Vevo.
In 2004, she produced debut album for Mexican duo Los Elegidos (Ana Bárbara's brothers). The album titled Tal y Como Somos, sampled Regional Mexican Banda and was released in 2005. Ana Bárbara wrote and composed several tracks on the album, including debut single Fruta Prohibida. The track topped Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks chart and helped Los Elegidos reach popularity in México and the United States. In 2006, she produced their second album titled Niña Mimada. She is currently producing their third album A Mi Me Pasa Igual due in 2014.
Selena tribute concert
In April 2005, she participated in Selena ¡VIVE!, an anniversary tribute concert held in honor of legendary icon Selena, the "Queen of Tejano music." The star-studded event was held on April 7, 2005 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. The iconic tribute was produced by Spanish-language network Univision, and made history by becoming the most watched Spanish-language television special in the US. Ana Bárbara produced and co-wrote a new version of "La Carcacha", which sampled Selena's original version mixed with her own signature style and Grupero touch.
2005 Latin Grammy
By the fall of 2005, Ana Bárbara won Best Grupero Album for Loca de Amar during the 6th Annual Latin Grammy Ceremony held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. This was also Ana Bárbara's Grammy ceremony debut where she performed a medly of Lo Busqué and Loca.
In July 2005, she began a relationship with Mariana Levy's widower, Jose Maria Fernandez, an architect commonly known as Pirru. Their union proved highly controversial and created a media frenzy because Pirru had recently become widowed just a few months earlier. Although Ana Bárbara was harshly criticized by the general public, they engaged October 2005 and wed a few months later. Their marriage ended after five years.
2006 Cancún, pregnancy, and family life
In the Spring of 2006, Ana Bárbara released official 2006 FIFA World Cup soccer theme Arriba Arriba.
In May 2006, Ana Bárbara released her ninth studio album, which would later became her last album with major record label Fonovisa. Lead single from No Es Brujería fared well on "Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks", but the promotion was quickly stalled after announcing her second pregnancy. Follow up single Vete was later released in a Banda version, as well as a duet of Con Mis Propias Manos, with Mexican singer Pablo Montero.
While Ana Barbara's career was in its highest peak of popularity, she made a bold decision to take an extensive break. She put her musical career on hold for several years in order to dedicate time to her new family. She relocated to the popular resort city of Cancún, México with newly husband Pirru, and their combined children Emiliano Gallardo (born in 2000), José Emilio Fernandez (born in 2005) and Paula Fernandez (born in 2004). Her second child, José María, was born in the fall of 2006.
In 2008, Ana Bárbara expanded her entrepreneur side once again by opening a nightclub titled Bandido. The night-club was also located in Cancún, Quintana Roo, México; however, it was sold to a business investor a year later.
2008 José José special tribute concert
In July 2008, Ana Bárbara made a special appearance in a star-studded tribute concert for legendary Mexican icon José José. She performed one of his classic hits titled Lo Pasado, Pasado and was acclaimed for one of the night's highlight performances. Ana Bárbara was also recognized for being one of the night's "best dressed".
Return to recording
After four years of musical absence, Ana Bárbara remained a popular favorite in the music entertainment industry. AllMusic.com said: "Ana Bárbara has not only dominated the Grupero movement, but she is one of the driving forces behind the Grupero-style realization." She was featured on the cover of People en Español in July 2009.
Ana Bárbara introduced lead single Rompiendo Cadenas in November 2009. The track was an uptempo Urbano/Pop track, produced by Dominican duo Luny Tunes featuring new Reggaeton artists Dyland & Lenny. The music video for Rompiendo Cadenas was filmed in La Habana, Cuba. After its release, it quickly reached over three million views on YouTube. Rompiendo Cadenas debuted at number 39 on Billboard's Latin Pop Songs on November 12, 2009. Two alternate versions of song Rompiendo Cadenas premiered on iTunes, one in banda and another in acoustic versions.
Ana Bárbara introduced Pop Latino album Rompiendo Cadenas in early 2010. During a press conference she described why she parted ways with Fonovisa Records, since she was still under contract for one more album. Ana Bárbara stated that Fonovisa perceived the material as "risky" because she had ventured out of her trademark and well-known Regional Mexican sound. Not only did Rompiendo Cadenas reveal her biggest genre challenge to date, but she was also the sole composer of the entire album. Furthermore, Fonovisa Records request to reconsider and change the music style or terminate the contract. Ana Bárbara immediately launched Rompiendo Cadenas via independent record label AB Productions.
In February 2010 Ana Bárbara hosted a series of events for Hispanic networks Univision and TeleFutura. She and Puerto Rican singer Víctor Manuelle hosted the 2010 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards live from Miami, Florida. Ana Bárbara was voted finalist for most elegant dressed celebrity. The following day she participated in a star-studded Spanish remake of Michael Jackson's "We Are the World", titled Somos El Mundo alongside Juanes, Juan Luis Guerra, Ricky Martin, Daddy Yankee, Thalía, Shakira, Pitbull, Gloria Estefan, Jenni Rivera, and Luis Miguel. In the same month, Ana Bárbara hosted a televised music special in honor of the legendary star Selena. She also participated as judge for a special Selena contest titled Buscando la doble de Selena.
In April 2010, second single from Rompiendo Cadenas premiered to mixed reviews. While lead track Rompiendo Cadenas became the album's most notable hit, second single Que Ironía signalled that her patented formula was beginning to run out of steam. 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 a new challenge, record the track, and make it her own. A music video premiered the following month and reached over a million views.
In May 2010, Ana Bárbara announced two new additional pop songs via her official Twitter page. The first track was Ahora Tengo; a duet with Mexican singer-songwriter Reyli; its music video was filmed in New York and premiered in June 2010. The next song was Alma Perdida, a powerful ballad made for Univision's mini-series Mujeres Asesinas 3.
In the Spring of 2011, some of Ana Bárbara's projects included an appearance in Univision's soap opera Una Familia Con Suerte; the cameo role became her official debut as an actress in a soap opera. Ana Bárbara also sang Suerte, the soap opera's theme song. In the Fall, Ana Bárbara released yet another bonus track and music video titled Refugio Para el Amor.
In June 2010, tabloid magazines and entertainment television shows speculated over divorce rumors between Ana Bárbara and José María Fernández Pirru, due to his infidelity. On July 2, 2010 Ana Bárbara released a statement confirming the end of her marriage. Months after the split, Ana Bárbara confirmed a new romantic relationship with wealthy business man Elias Sacal, but that also went sour several months later. She is currently dedicated solely to her children and career.
2010–2011 car accidents
In recent years, Ana Bárbara remained a fixture of celebrity gossip more so because of her personal life than her career. In July 2010, she was involved in a car accident in Cancún 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, speculated 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 victim's 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. During the appeal, Ana Bárbara was called to re-testify, but was found innocent of any wrongdoing. Munguía (driver) was free on bail while the case was pending, but in October 2011 he pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. In early 2012, he was sentenced to two years in prison; he was released in 2014.
On February 3, 2011, Ana Bárbara was involved in a second car accident in Cancún, Quintana Roo. Officials in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo say the singer was driving a Porsche Cayenne that hit the back of another vehicle at a stop light. Traffic officer Abraham Coutino said "no one was injured" and "the singer's insurance covered all damages." Once again, Ana Bárbara was highly criticized by the media. She asked the general public through a Twitter statement not to believe the over sensationalized media coverage over the minor fender bender accident.
2011 third pregnancy
After splitting from ex-husband, José María Fernández Pirru for nearly two years, a 40-year-old Ana Bárbara announced in August 2011 that she was expecting her third child via artificial insemination. She decided to undergo the procedure after her children Emiliano and José María suggested they wanted a bigger family. Ana Bárbara said she expected to be criticized for deciding to have a child without a father, but that she would not 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. Jerónimo was born in December 2011 in México City, México. In March 2012, during an exclusive interview with ¡Hola! magazine, Ana Bárbara revealed the identity of Jeronimo's father... none other than longtime best friend, singer-songwriter Reyli.
After tumultuous and public incidents that transcended in recent years, rumors swirled that Ana Bárbara was battling depression and anorexia. She confirmed via Twitter in March 2011 that she "had an illness" and was receiving treatment in Spain to improve her overall well being. Some suggest she was there for an artificial insemination procedure, although media highly questioned and speculated her third pregnancy. In July 2011, Ana Bárbara confirmed that she was moving from México and relocating to the United States.
2012 relocation, music, television show, and Hollywood
She released stand-alone Banda single Tu Ingratitud, a 1993 Los Bukis cover composed by Marco Antonio Solís. A music video was released in July and quickly reached millions of views on YouTube. Tu Ingratitud would soon reached international popularity and become Ana Bárbara's return to the charts, awards, and radio. The single peaked at number one in Mexico and top 20 in United States and South America. Ana Bárbara also collaborated with peers such as Maria Jose, Anahí, Marcos Llunas, and La Original Banda El Limon in each of their new albums.
In July 2012, Ana Bárbara became the newest judge on Estrella TV's music and reality contest Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento, filmed in Burbank, California. She replaced singer Jenni Rivera for the seventh season after Rivera left to judge La Voz... Mexico.
In October 2012, Dos Abrazos, a song written by Ana Bárbara from multi-Grammy nominated album No Es Brujería, appeared in Sharon Stone's 2012 Hollywood motion picture, Border Run. A Banda version of Dos Abrazos was later re-released in Ana Bárbara's eleventh studio album. The motion picture went straight to DVD and was released in February 2013.
2013 television show and music
In December 2012, new banda track Los Vergelitos leaked to radio.
In April, Ana Bárbara hosted the 2013 Billboard Latin Music Awards live from Miami, Florida via Telemundo network; however, her best highlight was an impromptu "a capella" serenade to music icon Jose Jose.
In August, Ana Bárbara became the voice of Yo Soy la Mujer, the theme song to Telemundo's soap opera Marido En Alquiler. Ana Bárbara premiered Yo Soy la Mujer (Versión Banda) on La Voz Kids grand finale. In November, Ana Bárbara made a cameo appearance in the soap opera and performed Yo Soy La Mujer. The track later became the title to her eleventh studio album.
In November 2013, Ana Bárbara participated in Premio de la Radio's tribute in honor of the late Jenni Rivera. Ana Bárbara performed one of Rivera's most popular hits, Inolvidable and also became one of the night's most acclaimed performance.
Ana Bárbara continued filming small television during the 8th and 9th season of Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento, via Estrella TV. During the reality show finale in November, Ana Bárbara premiered heartbreak track Yo Ya No Estoy.
After a long layoff to concentrate on family and filming small television, Ana Bárbara released her eleventh studio album Yo Soy La Mujer on December 3, 2013 via Sony U.S. Latin and Lo Busqué Productions. Ana Bárbara began production on the album three years earlier in México, Miami, Spain, and Los Angeles. Although Ana Bárbara had produced and composed Banda for over a decade, Yo Soy La Mujer became her very first studio album recorded entirely in that style of Regional Mexican music. During a press interview at The Conga Room, Ana Bárbara said "Yo Soy La Mujer is sentimental, but fun; it has a blend of traditional and modern banda elements and sounds that pay tribute to my heritage and childhood." The 10-track record includes songwriting from Mexican artists Joan Sebastian (Los Cazahuates), Marco Antonio Solís (Tu Ingratitud), Jose Alfredo Jimenez (Te Vas o Te Quedas) and Reyli (Yo Ya No Estoy). Yo Soy La Mujer peaked at No. 11 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart and included the hit single Ahora Me Toca a Mí, an empowerment song that talks about love tolerance and vindication. Yo Soy La Mujer became Ana Bárbara's second best studio album debut on the Billboard charts, behind Ay, Amor (1996). A music video for Ahora Me Toca A Mí premiered on Vevo along with a Pop version.
2014 Yo Soy La Mujer, tour, and current projects
In January 2014, Yo Soy La Mujer was released in Mexico; a limited Mexican edition includeded two previously unreleased tracks: Al Pie de un Árbol and Como Quieras Quiero.

Bandido, Loca de Amar (won Best Grupero Album), and No Es Brujería which also received a second nomination for Best Regional Mexican Album at the 2007 Grammy Awards. She is the only female solo artist with the most Latin Grammy nominations within the Regional genre. She is also one of only two female artists in the history of the Latin Grammy's Regional categories to have ever won the prestigious accolade, (the other is peer Alicia Villarreal). Her former record label Fonovisa said "these recognitions are milestone accomplishments in Ana Bárbara's career that has spanned for more than a decade of uninterrupted success in the United States, México and Latin America."
Ana Bárbara has also been awarded four Premio Lo Nuestro awards in the Regional Mexican Best Female Artist category, with a total of 11 nominations since her debut. She has won the following years: 1996, 1997, 1998, and in 2006.

By the fall of 2012, Ana Bárbara was honored with her first career recognition from Regional Mexican Music award show Premios de la Radio. "In a career spanning over 20 years, Ana Bárbara has sold over 8 million albums, singles, and videos worldwide, making her one of the few leading female interpreters of Mexican music. With a poweful voice and a disctinctive style, Ana Bárbara has brought a dominant female perspective to what had historically been a very male-dominated form of Regional Mexican music." To honor her first career recognition, Ana Bárbara performed a medly of signature songs: Lo Busque, Como Me Haces Falta, Tu Ingratitud, and Bandido. She also celebrated by performing a special duet of Te Voy Olvidar with friend, colleague, and superstar, the late Jenni Rivera (only one month before Rivera's untimely death).
