María Isabel López Rodríguez (born 1995.01.04 in Ayamonte, Spain) is a Spanish singer who won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2004 with the song Antes Muerta Que Sencilla (Rather dead than regular). The song was based on her interest in fashion and make-up. She adores clothes and dreams of having her own clothes shop one day. Her style is a big thing for her and never goes out without her make-up bag. She knew right from the beginning what her song was going to be about. She wanted to express with Flamenco pop music just how much fun it is to get dressed up.
María won the competition at the age of nine, and since the rules of the competiton changed to age limit 10 to 15, María was, and will always be, the youngest winner of Junior Eurovision Song Contest ever.
Several weeks before winning the festival she released her first CD, titled "No me Toques las Palmas que me Conozco" ("Don't clap Because I Know Myself"). This CD included "Antes Muerta que Sencilla", which launched her career in the Spanish show business world, making her a competitor of another Spaniard teen idol, Melody Ruiz Gutiérrez.
Her second album is titled "Número 2". It includes the hits "Pues Va A Ser Que No" and "En Mi Jardin". These songs are part of the soundtrack of the Spanish Barbie movie "Y La Magia De Pegaso". Her third album Capricornio was released on November 21, 2006 and has been a huge success. It is a double disk set which also includes a DVD with all of her videoclips and extras.
Her fourth studio album is collection of songs from the soundtrack of her first movie, Ángeles SA. Due to management and release problems, Ángeles SA entered the Spanish charts at number 35, however in the week commencing 20/12, it peaked at number 11, certifying it gold.
