one of the muses that inspired the poets of antiquity, Mexican singer
and actress Thalia (Ariadna Thalía Sodi Miranda) has worked her
magic on millions of fans around the world. From Argentina to Yemen, the
queen of soap operas ruled over the 90's, starring in her country's
highest-rated TV melodramas and bewitched many more with her albums.
Ever since she was a child in Mexico City, Thalia Sodi's dream was to become the brightest star, and she has managed to do just that, perhaps even beyond her wildest expectations. Always, though, wise enough to know that everything in life requires a balance.
At nine years of age, Thalia belonged to a musical group, Din-Din, that put out four albums, and participated in artistic festivals. With Din-Din, the future star worked arduously, traveled her country's capital, and lived with great intensity the life of an artist – a life that requires great effort, dedication and patience.
Towards the end of 1984, Thalia landed a part as a chorus girl in the musical "Grease," performed on stage in Mexico by the then-famous juvenile group Timbiriche. Such was Thalia's scenic presence, however, that in no time she graduated from the chorus to a starring role. Her own star light was undeniable, and each time she appeared on stage, she made it hers.
Eager to learn English and to polish her craft singing, dancing and learning to play guitar, Thalia said goodbye to Timbiriche in 1989 and moved to Los Angeles for a year. While there, she soaked up all the trends of the moment – from fashion to art.
Thalia returned to Mexico reinvigorated, with a new look and fresh ideas. That's what she sought to transmit in her debut solo album, "Thalia," her first collaboration with producer Alfredo Diaz Ordaz, with whom she would record two more successful albums, "Mundo de Cristal" and "Love."
"Thalia", the album, was a success.
In one bold move, Thalia agreed to star in a trilogy of soap operas, playing characters called Maria. The first one, "Maria Mercedes," came out in 1992 and quickly broke all ratings records. Two years later she did "Marimar," and it topped TV ratings lists in the United States. Success knocked on her door for a third time with 1995's "Maria la del barrio." Thanks to the risky decision to star in the three productions, Thalia's name became synonymous with Mexico in more than 120 countries, without any barriers of language, age or geographical regions.
Her international stardom as an actress opened even more doors for her as a singer, and in that arena, she returned in 1995 with "En Extasis" (EMI ), produced by Emilio Estefan and Oscar Lopez. The album went gold and platinum, creating a sensation with the single "Piel Morena" and its video. Released in more than 20 countries, its tropical rhythms and enchanting ballads made Thalia's sound unique.
The star was wanted everywhere: in festivals all around the world, from Viña del Mar in Chile to Miami's Calle 8 Festival; awards, honors and distinctions were showered upon her; and publications galore sought her.
