Cecilia Herrera

At 18 years old Cecilia moved to Los Angeles to follow one of the choreography gurus of that era: Alex Magno. Through the perfection and advice of Mr. Magno, Cecilia completed her early studies in the art of dance. Later in life, Cecila crossed paths with the lyrical singer and teacher Vivian Hernandez, whom has had an important role in her life.

After intense months of studying and reciting, she was chosen to perform important roles in various theatre productions. This time, she had the opportunity to work beside names of a certain calibre such as Massimo Ranieri and Patroni Griffi. By the age of 20, Cecilia had accumulated a noted quantity of professional experience. Destiny still had another surprise packed in the bag. In 1994, Cecilia signed a record deal with BMG Records, and the CD single “BLA BLA”, from the album “Alta Tensione” reached the top of the Italian Music charts. She was rewarded with the honor of being the opening act for one of the biggest stars in the music industry, Mr. Barry White.
