Having move to RCA, in the next years she would become one of the biggest stars in Latin America. In 1971, she acted in Ernesto Alonso's telenovela Muchacha italiana viene a casarse ("Italian girl comes here to get married") which opened the Spanish market television in the United States and was a success in Central America and South America. In 1973 she met a second aspiring singer Juan Gabriel who would become one of the biggest selling artists in the world. Together they would record ballads performed by mariachi bands, thus creating the style "balada ranchera".
The single Tú sigues siendo el mismo ("You are still the same") sold one million copies in the United States alone, and has since then been performed by dozens of other singers. She also filmed one of her biggest telenovelas Ana del aire ("Ana of the air") and recorded three more albums in 1974. In 1980 she recorded for the first time in a U. K.
studio, making an album of ballads and a single with two pop songs in English, in order to search some kind of crossover. During these years, she signed with Marsal Productions, then Caytronics, then Melody, RCA (again) and finally CBS, being her last contract with a transnational record company. Since then, she settled her own company in which she has launched 7 albums. In fact, her singing career spans through the year 2004, being her most recent album "Amor del Bueno" produced by Joan Sebastian and launched by Ole Music/Universal.
