She took her stage name from the song of the same name by Joaquín Pardavé.[1] She began her career singing rancheras, but after a tour of South America, she brought new songs to her repertoire, such as the Peruvian waltz "Nube gris".[2] In the 1940s and 1950s, she recorded many songs for the Peerless and RCA Víctor labels, with the Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán.

She married the Ecuadorian ventriloquist Paco Miller.[3] She died on 8 November 2014 in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.[4]
