Gloria Sabrina Gómez Delgado (born May 14, 1962) is a Venezuelan singer, actress, lawyer and TV presenter known by her professional name Kiara.

Life and career[edit]

Kiara was born in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. She took her first steps into the entertainment world when she joined her school choir but, because of her distinctive, powerful voice, the rest of the members didn't feel she blended in well and wasn't allowed to stay in their musical ensemble. However, her love for music remained a part of her life and she would constantly sing for her friends, backed up with a guitar. After graduating from UCAB's law school in Caracas, she decided to pursue a recording career.

One day, a friend talked her into recording a demo tape and submitting it to the two biggest record labels in Venezuela. She did and was quickly signed to SonoRodven and paired with popular producer Rudy La Scala for the recording of her debut album in 1987. She took her stage name from a Venezuelan native (indigenous) Princess from the state of Yaracuy.

In over 20 years, she has recorded six successful studio albums exploring different genres such as Latin pop, rock, ballads and even boleros. She also performed in some of the most important musical events in Latin America, including the Viña del Mar International Song Festival.

Besides her singing career, she has acted in several telenovelas in various Latin American countries, hosted different TV shows and even coached contestants on televised singing competitions.[1]
