Two of Latin America’s biggest divas of 1980s-era romantic pop balladry will join forces onstage.
The 62-year-old Argentinian singer Amanda Miguel (born Amanda Antonia Miguel Samso) — known for lovelorn classics like “El Me Mintió,” “Así No Te Amará Jamás,” and “Hagamos Un Trato” — will deliver revered hits from her 12-studio album discography; and Marisela Esqueda, the 52-year-old Los Angeles-born singer of Mexican descent, is expected to sing fan favorites like the gut-wrenching “Sola Con Mi Soledad” and “Sin Él,” among other nostalgic hits. “The tour promoter had the wonderful idea of joining us,” Amanda Miguel told Mundo Hispánico. “[Our concert together] generated a lot of public interest… We complement each other well during performances because we both rose to fame during the ‘80s.”
Since the tender age of four, Miguel has been a pianist, and at 16, she moved from the province of Chubut to study music at a Buenos Aires academy. In 1975, she met Diego Verdaguer, a singer/composer who would make her Argentina’s next star. Together they toured Latin America and eventually found a home in Mexico as a romantic couple. There, Miguel reached the peak of her career.
Marisela began her involvement in entertainment at the young age of six as a TV actress and singer in North America, singing at nightclubs on the West Coast while touring with her parents. She released her 1984 debut album at age 18, and three years later, she gained fame as a emotive pop singer throughout Mexico with notable features alongside Marco Antonio Solis and Celia Cruz.
The two venerated ‘80-famed chanteuses are a rare breed in this day and age, so be sure to catch them live.
