NYDIA ROJAS SCORES DOUBLE WHAMMY:
LATIN GRAMMY NOMINATION and
TOUR with LATIN SUPERSTARS JUAN GABRIEL and ANA GABRIEL
BURBANK, CA (July 7, 2000) — On the heels of receiving her nomination for the 1st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, Hollywood Records recording artist Nydia Rojas will embark on a U.S. tour this fall with Latin superstars Juan Gabriel and Ana Gabriel.
The only female artist in her Latin GRAMMY Award category, Nydia received the nomination for Best Ranchero Performance for her Hollywood Records album Si Me Conocieras. Nydia has been praised by USA Today as a “mariachi sensation” and as “the best female ranchera singer in the United States” by Ramiro Burr (editor, Billboard’s Guide to Tejano and Regional Mexican Music). Recorded in Mexico City with Mexico's finest mariachi musicians, Si Me Conocieras was produced by Carlos Cabral "Junior," acclaimed for his work with Ana Gabriel, Ana Bárbara, Marco Antonio Solis and Los Temerarios. For Si Me Conocieras, Cabral drew on the talents of the field's top arrangers, including Rigoberto Alfaro (Alejandro Fernandez, Vicente Fernandez), Javier Carrillo (Pepe Aguilar) and Manuel Cazares (Juan Gabriel).
For Nydia, taking her music on the road with Juan Gabriel and Ana Gabriel brings her musical journey full circle: “To share the stage with two of my greatest idols who have inspired me, my music and my live performances is a dream come true,” comments Nydia. Juan Gabriel was recently honored by Billboard magazine for sales exceeding 50 million units worldwide and for being one of the Latin industry’s leading performers who has consistently sold out concerts over his impressive 30-year career. The U.S. tour dates are as follows:
