Lola Beltrán was raised in El Rosario, Sinaloa, in a working-class household. Her church choir sparked her interest in singing and gave her the motivation and inspiration to sing. She then developed an obsession with ballads. In 1953, Lola Beltrán relocated to Mexico City with her mother in order to further her singing career.


The singer had the opportunity to compete in an on-air singing competition after accepting a position as a secretary at a well-known radio station. She created a new opportunity by winning the competition. She was so impressive to the show’s producers that they assisted her in getting a recording deal.

Later on, Beltrán started doing radio show covers of hit songs, and she even got her own radio program. But her aspirations didn’t stop there. Working with composers, the Mexican singer created tales of underdog protagonists who seek and achieve forgiveness. The most well-known of her songs were “Cucurrucucu Paloma” and “Cielito Lindo,” which spoke to Mexicans on a melancholy note. She sang songs in praise of the nation’s working class, yet she was still able to captivate listeners from all walks of life.

She gave the first-ever performance by a Ranchera singer in Mexico City’s esteemed El Palacio de Bellas Artes. She sang her songs for presidents and other dignitaries worldwide. Over her career, Beltrán produced 100 albums and acted in 50 motion pictures. Generations of Mexican singers are thought to have been influenced by her to embrace folk music and sing about real-life events.
