After having worked on television for some years, she recorded her first album in 1964, which was especially successful in Venezuela. She became known to the Spanish audience in 1965 with a hit version of France Gall's Poupée de cire, poupée de son. In 1966, she was awarded the Best Yé-yé Singer Prize. Her songs, like Romeo y Julieta, Las felchas del amor or El bahúl de los recuerdos became hits in Spain. In 1971, she took part in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song En un mundo nuevo, where she achieved the second place, only losing to Monaco's contestant Séverine with her song Un banc, un arbre, une rue. After Eurovision she played at the film En un mundo nuevo, which was inspired by her participation at the European contest. At the end of the yé-yé years she moved to Mexico where she became moderately successful singing rancheras. Now she is still singing.
She has been married four times and has two daughters. In recent years, she was diagnosed with cancer but has since made a full recovery.
