Biography
Mexican singer Ana Gabriel reached the stage for the first time at the age of six, singing José Alfredo Jiménez's "Regalo A Dios," a sweet experience the artist hardly forgets. Daughter of Ramon Araujo and Japanese descendant Isabel Young, Ana Gabriel was always supported by her parents. At the age of 15, the enthusiastic teenager moved to Tijuana to study accountancy and pursue a singing career, having the opportunity to record her first song called "Comprendeme" in 1977. Later, Ana Gabriel came in second place at a local festival known as Valores Juveniles (Youthful Values), after singing "No Me Lastimes Mas." In 1986, Ana Gabriel represented Mexico at OTI's Festival, having her breakthrough two years later after releasing Tierra De Nadie, which included her first smash, a song called "Simplemente Amigos." ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
