Amanda Miguel

Amanda Miguel (born June 1st, 1956 in Gaiman, Chubut) is a platinum-selling Argentine singer-songwriter and pianist with a career spanning multiple decades. First performing to large audiences in the late 1970s as a backing singer for her then-boyfriend, the famed singer Diego Verdaguer, the pair would later go on to become lifelong lovebirds and close musical collaborators. After releasing her debut single, the well-received ballad “Papá, cuando regreses”, in 1979, Miguel returned with “Así no te amará jamás”, which soon became an international hit and went on to serve as the lead single from her debut studio album, El Sonido Vol. 1 (1981). The LP spawned several more chart smashes, selling over three million units and consequently leading her to become one of the best-selling female singers of the 2000s. After completing the El Sonido trilogy of albums with two more commercial triumphs in 1983 and 1984, she took some time out from music to raise her daughter, Ana Victoria (who would become a successful singer herself a little over two decades later). Co-founding her own Warner-distributed record label, Diam Music, alongside Verdaguer thereafter, she released her fourth LP, El pecado, in 1987, and her fifth, El rostro del amor, in 1989, which came with the blessing of Pope John Paul III. After expanding her musical palette and dabbling in traditional Mexican ranchera music on 1992’s Rompecorazones, she further cemented her international legacy with the 1996 album Ámame una vez más, which remained on the Billboard 200 for eighteen weeks. Still recording well into the 21st century, Miguel has since gone on to release many more LPs, including the 2004 Christmas album Feliz Navidad a toda la humanidad and the 2015 album 80*15.
