María Martha Serra Lima (born December 19, 1944) is an Argentine singer.

Life and work[edit]

Born in Buenos Aires to a family of auto dealership proprietors, Serra Lima was first signed on to a record label in 1977, and became famous across Latin America and in Spain during the 1970s and 1980s. Known for her contralto vocal texture and her repertoire of love ballads and boleros, she collaborated extensively with singer-songwriters from elsewhere in Latin America, particularly Mexican standards such as Los Panchos and Armando Manzanero; among her best-known, non-Hispanic interpretations is that of Paul Anka's My Way. Her albums became hits in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, and elsewhere in the region, apart from her home country.[1]

She has shared the stage with numerous major international singers, done multiple international tours and won many awards through her career as a singer. Sold 10 million albums in the late 70's and early 80's.
