CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: - 1913 recording artist Blanca Maria is currently promoting her debut EP titled “Set It Off” throughout the Midwest.

Blanca Maria is no stranger to the spotlight; she has been performing since the age of 10, she was selected from hundred’s of children to perform in the prestigious professional children’s choir ‘All God’s Children’. During her 3 years with AGC she traveled the country singing in numerous concerts which was highlighted by performances at Orchestra Hall in downtown Chicago. She would later become a key member of her high school choir.
Her early influences were Selena, Mariah Carey, Aliyah, Gloria Esteban, Mary J. Blige, Celia Cruz and Brenda K. Starr. She would perfect their repertoire which eventually caught the attention of her father who reluctantly put his young daughter on stage at local festivals in the summertime performing covers of these fine artists. This eventually led to her earning the role of lead singer in her father’s Chicago area band Ritmo. With Ritmo she sang covers of other influential artists such as Donna Summer, Teena- Marie and Evelyn “Champagne” King as well as the artists that inspired her early on. During her years with Ritmo she performed at many venues including St. Bartholomew's Annual Carnival, Fiesta del Sol, The Chicago Puerto Rican Day Parade, Burbank Rose, Hedgehogs, St. Joesph’s Annual Carnival, Luv N Music, and many more.

In 2005 Blanca Maria felt she had reached her potential singing cover songs. It was then that she decided to write and compose her own original songs. Her experience at a young age enabled her to write powerful lyrics and arrange them like a seasoned professional. Blanca Maria’s gift of writing is evident from her emotional ballads to her floor stomping dance songs. Blanca Maria delivers a quadruple threat in being able to write, compose, sing and dance while possessing a great stage presence.

Recently Blanca Maria has opened for Stevie B, Soave and Toby Love. Blanca Maria has also participated at various community events including the Mexican Arts Festival in Pilsen and at the Puerto Rican Day Parade Festival sponsored by Burger King in Humboldt Park, Chicago.

Blanca Maria’s debut EP “Set it Off” demonstrates her talents in a well rounded collection of songs that all music lovers will enjoy. All of Blanca Maria's music is available on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, Rhapsody, DigStation and several other internet music sites.
