Mark April 7 on your calendars, because that’s when Gloria Trevi will hit the stage at Schlitterbahn Water Park at South Padre Island.
Referred to as the “Supreme Diva of Mexican Pop” by VH1, Trevi has sold approximately 20 million records in her career.
She was born in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico before leaving at the age of 12 to pursue a career in Mexico City, where she sang and danced on the streets for spare change, taught aerobics, and worked at a food stand serving quesadillas.
¿Qué Hago Aquí?, her first solo album was released in 1989 and produced the number one hit “Dr. Psiquiatra”.
Her recent album, Gloria, released in 2011 reached number 71 on the Billboard’s Top 200, and was the number one Latino Pop album of the year.
