Ana Gabriel is a Mexican singer and composer.
Ana Gabriel was born as María Guadalupe Araújo Yong, in Santiago de Comanito, Sinaloa, Mexico. She is of mixed descent; her mother Isabel Yong was the daughter of Chinese immigrants. She first sang on the stage at age six, singing “Regalo A Dios” by José Alfredo Jiménez. She moved to Tijuana, Baja California and studied accounting there.
At age 21, in 1977, she recorded her first song, titled “Compréndeme”. During her long career, she has hits in three different genres of music: rock en español, Latin Pop, and rancheras. In 2006 she received the Lo Nuestro award’s “Premio a la Excelencia” (Excellence Award).
Although a music collection promotes her and fellow Mexican singer Juan Gabriel as “Los Gabriel” (The Gabriels), they are not related to each other.
