“Cuevas is to Mexico what Aretha Franklin is to the United States: a powerful voice that encapsulates the essence of her nation’s spirit.”—Kansas City Star

Known as “The Queen of Ranchera Music,” Aída Cuevas is the first and only female mariachi singer to ever win a Grammy Award and a Latin Grammy Award. Celebrating nearly 50 years as an international icon, her songbook albums have played a central role in defining Mexican popular music over an illustrious career spanning 41 full-length albums that have sold more than 11 million copies. She is an impassioned performer with a striking voice that evokes life’s deepest sorrows, greatest joys, and most profound longings. Cuevas makes her UGA Presents debut with a special program honoring her late mentor, one of Mexico’s bestselling performing artists, Juan Gabriel.
