Navidad developed an interest in music before acting, mainly influenced by her father, Jesús. She once was quoted as saying that his voice has been her inspiration since she was born. When she was nine years old she sang to the public for the first time in a school festival, and at fifteen she made her professional debut.[1]


Two years later, Navidad saw a greater opportunity in the Señorita Sinaloa (Miss Sinaloa) contest which offered as a grand prize a scholarship to Centro de Educación Artística de Televisa (Center of Artistic Education) in Mexico City.[2] In 1993 while at CEA she acted in Los Parientes Pobres, and several other films until she hit it big with her role in the soap opera, Cañaveral de Pasiones (Sugar Cane Plantation of Passions). The role was noticed immediately by the country and after three years she became famous as an actress.


From 1997–2000 she co-starred with René Casados as the conductora (conductor) in the comedy musical show Picardía Mexicana ("Mexican Roguery"). In 1998–2004 she acted in telenovelas (soap operas), the most famous being 2003's Mariana de la Noche ("Mariana of the Night") as the role of Yadira.

She played Alicia Ferreira in the Mexican telenovela La Fea Más Bella ("The Most Beautiful Ugly Girl"), a re-make of the original Colombian soap opera, Yo Soy Betty La Fea ("I am Betty, the Ugly One". She has had roles in other successful and recent telenovelas, such as Zacatillo: Un Lugar en tu Corazón," and "Por Ella Soy Eva" (2011-2012). She will star in Lucero Suárez's telenovela: Espuma de Venus[3]


However, although famous as an actress, she did not abandon her musical career, releasing the album Instantes ("Instances") in 1998 which reached sales of over 100,000, it was awarded gold record.[4][5][6] In May 2000 she released her second album entitled "Mexican", rescuing her Mexican roots.[7]


In 2000, Navidad was awarded Queen of the Banda in the Carnival of Mazatlán, Sinaloa for the recording of the disc Don Cruz Lizárraga presenta a Patricia Navidad: Raíces de mi tierra ("Don Cruz Lizárraga presents Patricia Navidad: Roots of my Homeland").[8]


Paty Navidad was once involved in a controversy with Raúl de Molina, co-host of El Gordo y La Flaca and with Lili Estefan, in which he made a remark that she did not like and she walked off the show, after yelling at Estefan about Estefan's grandmother, ignoring that Estefan's grandmother had died just recently before that.[9]

Twitter suspended Navidad′s account in January 2021 after she spread false information about the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2021 storming of the United States Capitol.[10]
