Singing career

After a few musicals she asked for the assistance of her mother (who was also her manager) and with Armando Manzanero, then a new songwriter, they both performed the song Eddie Eddie which would eventually become her greatest musical success. Manzanero took Angélica to see a producer and the same year she released her first album in Musart record company. The album was a success and she began touring and making movies with teen idols such as César Costa and Venezuelan actor/singer Enrique Guzmán who she would date later.

In 1965, she filmed Fray Torero in Spain and came back to Mexico to appear in two movies and record her sixth album. She then acted in such successful films as 5 de chocolate y 1 de fresa (“Five of chocolate and one of strawberry” and obtained the star role in the 1968 film version of Corazón salvaje a movie that made her famous in places as far as China. 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”.
