Ana Bárbara (born January 10, 1971) is a Mexican Latin Grammy Award winning recording artist. She has become a prominent figure within Latin entertainment since her professional debut in 1994 and is amongst one of the leading female figures in Regional Mexican music.
Recognized for her musical talent as well as her sex appeal, Ana Bárbara became popular in the mid-1990s and was crowned La Reina Grupera, for she has not only dominated the Grupero movement, but is one of the driving forces behind the style's realization. With a distinct vocal range, songwriting and producing talent, Ana Bárbara has defined the modern Grupero performance and is one of the few Regional Mexican acts to garner an international following that extends beyond México and the United States.
Life and career
Early life and early career
Ana Bárbara showed immense musical potential from an early age. She was particularly influenced and inspired by her older sister, Viviana Ugalde, who was a popular singer locally. Today, Ugalde represents Ana Bárbara as part of her management team.
In 1988, Ana Bárbara entered the local Miss Universe-sponsored Miss Mexico beauty pageant representing her native state of San Luis Potosí and won; however, she lost at the national level.. By then, an unknown Altagracia Ugalde moved forward and began to seize any opportunity to sing at local talent shows, and at times professionally at variety of music events and festivals. In 1990 she had the opportunity to tour overseas in Colombia and represent Mexico's mariachi music.
In 1993, Ana Bárbara was proclaimed the Ambassador of Ranchera Music. She also earned the Rostro Bonito de El Heraldo ("El Heraldo's Beautiful Face") award. As a result, she was invited to perform for Pope John Paul II during a Mass at The Vatican. When Mass neared its close; however, she still hadn't been given an opportunity to sing, so she interrupted the proceedings, commanded the attention of the Pope, and began to sing. After mass Pope John Paul II approached Ana Bárbara, blessed her, and wished her luck in her career.
In 1994, Ana Bárbara was noticed by record execs from Fonovisa, one of the top labels in the Regional Mexican market. After signing with Fonovisa, she created artistic stage name 'Ana Bárbara' and launched the self-titled debut album Ana Bárbara. The album was produced and largely written by Aníbal Pastor; it also included songwriting from idol Joan Sebastian. Songs like Sacúdeme and Nada helped Ana Bárbara become a Mexican Grupero star on the rise.
Ana Bárbara released her second album titled La Trampa in July 1995, also produced by Aníbal Pastor. La Trampa catapulted Ana Bárbara's popularity and immediately became a commercial and radio hit. Ana Bárbara received industry accolades as well as invitations to tour and open for Mexican giants Vicente Fernandez and Los Tigres Del Norte. She also appeared on important Latin American television shows like Sabado Gigante and Siempre en Domingo. Consecutive hits and popular music videos, such as Me Asusta Pero Me Gusta and La Trampa, topped Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks and established her as La Reina Grupera (Queen of Grupero Music).
By summer of 1996, Ana Bárbara broke through to mainstream international success with third album Ay, Amor. The album solidified her as a successful Latin recording artist and also became her best album debut on the Latin Billboard charts. Ay, Amor offered a wider appeal to her music by offering some alternate takes on Grupero, and even some ranchero flavored ballads like No Ha Sido Facil, and Entre Ella y Yo. Her attractive appearance and sensual dancing style captivated Latin America audiences during promotional tours with hit singles and music videos of No Lloraré and Ya No Te Creo Nada.
In 1997 she released her first and only calendar. Coors Light beer also selected Ana Bárbara as their Hispanic promotional figure for marketing and advertising. Later that year she returned to Miami, Florida for the annual Calle 8 Music Festival where she was crowned "Queen" of the 1997 parade.
In 1998, Ana Bárbara released fourth studio album produced by singer songwriter and icon Marco Antonio Solís. The album, titled Los Besos No Se Dan En La Camisa, was largely a ballads album with only one Grupero-style song. It included a duet and background vocals by Solís, as well as a 1982 Los Bukis cover of Como Me Haces Falta, which quickly became a popular hit. Como Me Haces Falta also dominated airwaves across Latin America, México, and the United States. Ana Bárbara kept up the momentum of her previous release as her popularity continued to grow.
In 1999, Ana Bárbara released fifth studio album Tu Decisión, produced by longtime collaborater Aníbal Pastor. One of his two songwriting credits, Engañada, became the album's lead single and most popular hit. Tu Decisión was also notable in songwriting terms because it marked Ana Bárbara's debut as a songwriter. In the same year she also debuted as an actress, starring in the made-for-TV film Todo Contigo, via Hispanic network Televisa/Univision. The film's song Todo Contigo was included in album Tu Decisión. Music videos like Quise Olvidar grew in popularity on television shows like Onda Max and other music video television networks. The following year Ana Bárbara became the first solo grupero act recognized by The Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences for album Tu Decisión, which received a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Grupero Performance.
In 2000, Ana Bárbara took a short break in order to dedicate time to birth of her first child, Emiliano.
She was briefly out of the limelight but quickly returned to the music scene in 2001 with sixth studio album Te Regalo La Lluvia. The Mariachi-ballad effort was a challenge to her custom Grupero style; however, industry critics who had written off Ana Bárbara as simply "a grupero novelty built chiefly upon sex appeal" consequently took her and her music a bit more seriously. In the fall, she received her second Latin Grammy nomination for Best Mariachi Performance. Ana Bárbara also participated in El Último Adiós (The Last Goodbye), a song written in memory of the 9/11 attacks, which included popular artists, such as Alejandro Fernández, Marco Antonio Solís, Thalía, and Ricky Martin, among others. As Ana Bárbara toured for Te Regalo La Lluvia, she began preparations for a Grupero-style album.
After several years as a recording artist, Ana Bárbara began to produce her own material. She took control of the direction of her music and began to compose, arrange, and select her own lyrics and melodies, yet followed patterns of earlier albums.
In September 2003, Te Atraparé...Bandido was released; it became one of her most successful albums to date. Soon record executives pushed for another album, and in May 2005 Ana Bárbara produced and released Loca de Amar. Both album releases sold millions, earned Latin Grammy nominations, and kept Ana Bárbara's touring on overdrive. With Te Atraparé...Bandido and Loca de Amar, popular chart-topping singles like Bandido, Deja, Loca, and Lo Busqué dominated airwaves across South America, Mexico, and the United States, as well as on Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks. Music videos for each of the tracks also reached over 25 million combined views on Vevo.
In 2004, she produced debut album for Mexican duo Los Elegidos (Ana Bárbara's brothers). Their album titled Tal y Como Somos was produced in Banda and was released in 2005. Ana Bárbara wrote and composed several tracks on the album, including debut single Fruta Prohibida. The single topped Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks chart and helped Los Elegidos reach popularity in México and the United States. In 2006, she produced their sophomore album titled Niña Mimada. She is currently producing their third album A Mi Me Pasa Igual due in 2014.
Selena tribute concert
In April 2005, she participated in Selena ¡VIVE!, an anniversary tribute concert held in honor of legendary icon Selena, the "Queen of Tejano music." The star-studded event was held on April 7, 2005 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas and included other acts, such as Thalia, Ana Gabriel, Alejandra Guzman, Olga Tanon, Pepe Aguilar, and Banda el Recodo, among others. The iconic tribute was produced by Spanish-language network Univision, and made history by becoming the most watched Spanish-language television special in the US. Ana Bárbara produced and co-wrote a new version of "La Carcacha", which mixed Selena's original version with her Grupero signature style.
2005 Latin Grammy
By the fall of 2005, Ana Bárbara won Best Grupero Album for Loca de Amar at the 6th Annual Latin Grammy Ceremony held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. This was also Ana Bárbara's Grammy ceremony debut where she performed a medly of Lo Busqué and Loca.
In July 2005, Ana Bárbara began a relationship with Mariana Levy's widower Jose Maria Fernández, an architect commonly known as Pirru. Their union proved highly controversial and created a media frenzy because Pirru had recently become widowed. Although the controversial couple was harshly criticized by the general public, they engaged October 2005 and wed a few months after. Their union; however, stunned the media and many of Ana Bárbara's followers in México and the United States for years to come.
2006 Cancún, pregnancy, and family life
In the Spring of 2006, Ana Bárbara released official 2006 FIFA World Cup soccer theme Arriba Arriba, as well as ninth studio album No Es Brujería. Lead single No Es Brujería fared well on Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks, but the promotion was quickly stalled after announcing her second pregnancy. Follow up single Vete was later released in a Banda version, as well as a duet of Con Mis Propias Manos with Mexican singer Pablo Montero.
While Ana Bárbara's career was in its peak popularity, she made a bold decision to take an extensive break from music. She put her career on hold for several years in order to dedicate time to her new family. She also relocated to the popular resort city of Cancún, México with newly husband Pirru, and their combined children Emiliano Gallardo (born in 2000), José Emilio Fernandez (born in 2005) and Paula Fernandez (born in 2004). Her second child, José María, was born in the fall of 2006.
During her "time-off," she joined the food-industry business. She opened an exclusive restaurant in 2007 titled Chocalate City, located in Cancún, Quintana Roo, México.
In 2008, Ana Bárbara expanded her entrepreneur side once again by opening a nightclub titled Bandido. The night-club was also located in Cancún, Quintana Roo, México; however, it was sold to a business investor a year later.
2008 José José special tribute concert
In July 2008, Ana Bárbara made a special appearance in a star-studded concert tribute for legendary Mexican icon José José. She performed his classic hit titled Lo Pasado, Pasado and was acclaimed for one of the night's highlight performance. Ana Bárbara was also recognized for being the night's "best dressed". After the merger of Fonovisa into Univesal Latin Music, Ana Barbara announced a new album in the works for fall of 2009.
In April 2009, Ana Bárbara was featured on the cover of People en Español Los 50 Más Bellos list, alongside Maite Perroni, and Eva Longoria, among others.
Return to recording and Fonovisa departure
Several greatest hits albums were released during Ana Bárbara's time off, like CD/DVD Una Mujer, Un Sueño and Para Ti, Mi Historia. Compilation albums featuring peers such as Alicia Villarreal, Jennifer Pena, and the late Selena (Dos Historias), were also released by Fonovisa. After taking four years off from recording, Ana Bárbara remained a popular favorite in the enternatinment industry. AllMusic.com said: "Ana Bárbara has not only dominated the Grupero movement, but she is one of the driving forces behind the Grupero-style realization." In the summer of 2009, she was featured on the cover of People en Español.
Ana Bárbara introduced lead single Rompiendo Cadenas in November 2009; an uptempo Urbano/Pop track, produced by Dominican duo Luny Tunes featuring new Reggaeton artists Dyland & Lenny. The music video for Rompiendo Cadenas was filmed in La Habana, Cuba and quickly reached over three million views on YouTube. Rompiendo Cadenas debuted at number 39 on Billboard's Latin Pop Songs on November 12, 2009. Two alternate versions of song Rompiendo Cadenas premiered on iTunes, one in banda and another in acoustic.
Ana Bárbara introduced Pop Latino album Rompiendo Cadenas in January 2010. During its press conference, she described the departure with label Fonovisa Records. Ana Bárbara stated that Fonovisa perceived her new material as "risky" because she had ventured out of her trademark and well-known Regional Mexican sound. Not only did album Rompiendo Cadenas reveal a completely different genre, but Ana Bárbara was also sole songwriter of the 10-track album; a challenge she had never experimented with. Furthermore, Fonovisa Records request to reconsider and change the music style or terminate the contract. Unfortunately, Ana Bárbara left her label after increasing problems and immediately launched Rompiendo Cadenas on her own record label AB Productions (Lo Busqué Productions).
In February 2010 Ana Bárbara hosted a series of events for Hispanic networks Univision and TeleFutura. She and Puerto Rican singer Víctor Manuelle hosted the 2010 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards live from Miami, Florida. Ana Bárbara was voted finalist for most elegant dressed celebrity. The following day she participated in a star-studded Spanish remake of Michael Jackson's We Are the World, titled Somos El Mundo alongside Juanes, Juan Luis Guerra, Ricky Martin, Daddy Yankee, Thalía, Shakira, Pitbull, Gloria Estefan, Jenni Rivera, and Luis Miguel. In the same month, Ana Bárbara hosted a televised music special in honor of legendary fallen icon Selena. She also participated as judge for a special Selena contest titled Buscando la doble de Selena, alongside Hollywood producer Moctesuma Esparza, and Latin Grammy-winning Dominican Merengue music singer Milly Quezada.
In March 2010, second single from Rompiendo Cadenas premiered to mixed reviews. While lead track Rompiendo Cadenas became the album's most notable hit, second single Que Ironía signalled that her patented formula was beginning to run out of steam. The track included rock and pop versions, but neither sparked much interest in radio or the general public. Ana Bárbara later explained that the song was originally written and intended for pop diva Gloria Trevi, but when her eldest son Emiliano reassured her confidence, she decided to take a new challenge, record the track, and make it her own. A music video premiered the following month and reached over a million views. Although album Rompiendo Cadenas did not fare well in sales in comparison to previous efforts, it won Ana Bárbara critical acclaim and it was well received by fans, even though the album demonstrated a new found independence on mainstream Pop Latino.
In May 2010, Ana Bárbara announced two new additional Pop Latino songs. The first track was Ahora Tengo, a duet featuring Mexican singer-songwriter Reyli; its music video was filmed in New York and premiered in June 2010. The next song was Alma Perdida, a powerful ballad composed specifically for Univision's mini-series Mujeres Asesinas 3.
In the Spring of 2011, some of Ana Bárbara's projects included an appearance in Univision's soap opera Una Familia Con Suerte; the cameo role became her official debut as an actress in a soap opera. Ana Bárbara also sang Suerte, which was included in the soap opera soundtrack. In the fall, Ana Bárbara released yet another Pop Latino bonus track and music video titled Refugio Para el Amor, but like several recent releases since Rompiendo Cadenas, it too garnered a lukewarm reception.
In June 2010, tabloid magazines and entertainment television shows speculated over divorce rumors between Ana Bárbara and José María Fernández Pirru, due to his infidelity. On July 2, 2010 Ana Bárbara released a statement confirming the end of their five year marriage. Months after the split, Ana Bárbara confirmed a new romantic relationship with wealthy business man Elias Sacal, but that also went sour several months later. She is currently dedicated solely to her children and career.
2010–2011 car accidents
In recent years, Ana Bárbara remained a fixture of celebrity gossip more so because of her personal life than her talent. In July 2010, she was involved in a car accident in Cancún that left a 79-year-old woman dead; the incident sparked a media circus. Authorities arrested Ana Bárbara's driver (bodyguard and family friend). Some eyewitnesses, however, speculated that it was Ana Bárbara who was driving. She denied the accusations and any wrongdoing. Due to immense media pressure, Ana Bárbara granted network Televisa an exclusive interview where she broke down in tears and oferred the victim's family an apology about the accident. She also stated that on-scene police authorities allowed her to leave the scene because they had apprehended her driver. To add fuel to the fire, the victim's daughter used several media outlets to blast Ana Bárbara and presume that it was she that was driving. Ana Bárbara was exonerated after Mexican authorities found no evidence that could have linked her behind the wheel. She faced civil charges for being the registered owner of the vehicle involved in the accident. In December 2010, Mexico's CNDH (Human Resources National Committee) recommended that the governor and Municipal President of Quintana Roo review the case after a petition was filed by the victim's family claiming investigative fallacies. During the appeal, Ana Bárbara was called to re-testify, but was found innocent of any wrongdoing. Munguía (driver) was free on bail while the case was pending, but in October 2011 he pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. In early 2012, he was sentenced to two years in prison; he was released in 2014.
On February 3, 2011, Ana Bárbara was involved in another car accident in Cancún, Quintana Roo. Officials in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo say the singer was driving a Porsche Cayenne that hit the back of another vehicle at a stop light. Traffic officer Abraham Coutino said "no one was injured" and "the singer's insurance covered all damages." Ana Bárbara was highly criticized by the media once again, but asked the general public not to believe the exaggerated reports over the minor fender bender accident.
2011 third pregnancy
After splitting from ex-husband, José María Fernández Pirru for nearly two years, a 40-year-old Ana Bárbara announced in August 2011 that she was pregnant via artificial insemination. She decided to undergo the procedure after her children Emiliano and José María suggested they wanted a bigger family. Ana Bárbara said she expected to be criticized for deciding to have a child without a father, but she would not let the criticism bother her. "I felt my puzzle was missing a piece and now it's complete," she told the Méxican edition of ¡Hola! magazine. Her third child was named Jerónimo and he was born in December 2011 in México City. During an exclusive interview in March 2012, Ana Bárbara revealed the identity of Jeronimo's father to ¡Hola! magazine... none other than longtime best friend, singer-songwriter Reyli.
After several public and tumultuous incidents that transcended in recent years, Ana Bárbara suffered personal troubles that resulted in depression and anorexia. She confirmed via Twitter in March 2011 that she had "an illness" and was receiving treatment in Spain to improve her overall well being. In July 2011, Ana Bárbara confirmed that she was moving from México and relocating to the United States.

Her ensuring and well received single Tu Ingratitud soon reached international popularity and became Ana Bárbara's return to music charts and touring, proving she had not lost her touch. Tu Ingratitud peaked at number one in Mexico and top 20 in United States and South America. Ana Bárbara also collaborated with peers such as Maria Jose, Anahí, Marcos Llunas, and La Original Banda El Limon in each of their new albums.

Although Ana Bárbara had produced and composed Banda for over a decade, her eleventh studio album became her return to Regional Mexican music and her first Banda album. During a press interview at The Conga Room, Ana Bárbara said "Yo Soy La Mujer is sentimental, but fun; it has a blend of traditional and modern banda elements and sounds that pay tribute to my heritage and childhood." The 10-track record includes songwriting from Mexican artists Joan Sebastian (Los Cazahuates), Marco Antonio Solís (Tu Ingratitud), Jose Alfredo Jimenez (Te Vas o Te Quedas), and Reyli (Yo Ya No Estoy), as well as three tracks composed by Ana Bárbara.
