In 1962, she debuted on Canal 7, participating in the program's El hit de sus favoritos as well as in El Club del Clan. In Lima, Peru, she received the award for Best Foreign Singer. In December 1964, she began filming Fiebre de Junio. She also performed "¡Que Suerte!" in Uruguay, which became her greatest hit, along with Chico Novarro and Palito Ortega. By 1965, after developing a successful solo career, Rivas toured Latin America singing melodic songs.[1] After the 1960s, she continued to perform in other films and to sing other songs such as "Colorado", "El Baile del Ladrillo", "El Cardenal", among others.
