Biography

A giant of Latin music, singer
Vikki Carr was born Florencia Bisenta de Casillas-Martinez Cardona in El Paso,
Texas on July 19, 1941. She launched her recording career in 1962 scoring a top
5 hit in Australia with “He’s a Rebel”, a song Phil Spector would take
to number 1 in America as a producer for the girl group The Crystals. The title
track of her 1966 album It Must Be Him, earned her a top 5 hit in the
U.S. Follow-up hits like “The Lesson” and “With Pen in Hand” made
her one of her generation’s most admired singers in the business. She regularly
appeared on, and even guest-hosted The Tonight Show repeatedly throughout
the 1970s, although her music career began to fizzle during the decade. All
that changed with 1980’s Vikki Carr el Amor, a Spanish language album
that made her one of the biggest stars in Latin music. She continued to pursue
this new direction and with 1985’s Simplemente Mujer she scored a top 20
Latin pop album. She had a run of hit U.S. Latin singles in the late 80s and
early 90s including top 10 placements for 1987’s “Dos Corazones” and
1988’s “Mala Suerte”. She topped the U.S. Latin charts with the title
track of her 1991 album Cosas del Amor. In 2002 she earned strong
reviews for her work in a Los Angeles production of Follies, and hosted
the TV program Fiesta Mexicana, a documentary that showcased various
styles of Mexican dance and music. That same year she was bestowed a Lifetime
Achievement Award from the Latin Recording Academy. After a mass shooting at an
El Paso store in 2019, Vikki Carr starred in a fundraising event for the
victims and their families.
