Rocio Dúrcal

Biography

Spanish singer who available more than 40 million records before her untimely death from cancer. She performed within a locally televised skill show, performing “La Sombra Vendo,” that was noticed by way of a record professional. Prior to making her record debut, she needed to shorten her name from María de los Ángeles de las Heras Ortiz; Dúrcal was selected randomly from a map. Her parents nurtured her abilities, but discouraged her from producing a profession of performing. While touring america, she was asked to perform for the Ed Sullivan Present.
