Singer, songwriter, published author, actress and entrepreneur, who has sung in various languages including Spanish, English, Portuguese, French and Filipino, Thalía has done so much. However, her most important roles are married to music executive Tommy Mottola, and being the mother of their two children, daughter Sabrina Sakae and son Matthew Alejandro.
Thalía is recognized as the most successful female solo Mexican singer by Univision, Televisa, and Azteca, and is often referred to as the “Queen of Latin Pop” by international media for her legacy within the Latin pop music scene of the last 25 years.
As a solo artist, she has sold over 40 million records worldwide, being considered one of the best-selling Latin musicians of all time. With 28 Top 10 singles, 16 of which went to No.1 it’s no wonder Thalía has received numerous accolades including five Latin Billboard awards, several Premios Juventud awards, and various Latin Grammy nominations.
The beginning of last year was a very exciting year, yet different as Thalía released her first children’s album VIVA KIDS Vol.1. The album has 11 songs and received one nomination to the 2014 Latin Grammy Awards. Vamos A Jugar, the single to the album is full of joy and contagious beats; surely we are all looking forward to the next volumes.
But that’s not all, last year Italian global superstar Laura Pausini released a special version of her Greatest Hits album to the Hispanic market, which contains a new duet with Thalía in Sino a ti. And later Thalía released the lead single of Amore Mio, making it her third album that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Latin Top Albums chart.
While unveiling a star with her name on it on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, that same day Macy’s announced it had signed a multiyear contract for a new clothes and accessories line inspired by her personality, which we all know is full of chispa.
During this month of February, the Thalía Sodi brand will debut in more than 300 Macy’s stores across the United States and on its website. Initially they will sell dresses, shirts, pants, shoes, and jewelry before it hopes to incorporate others products down the line.
Despite her action-packed non-stop entertainment moves and her savvy business-filled itinerary, Thalía still has heart and passion toward many humanitarian projects, this includes the March of Dimes, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, and ALAS Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that strives to launch a new social movement that will generate a collective commitment to comprehensive Early Childhood Development programs for the children in Latin America.
