Maria Laura Corradini Falomir, popularly known as Chenoa is a famous Argentine-Spanish female music artist who became successful after appearing on the TV contest Operacion Triunfo. Her music style could be described in the United States as pop. Most of her music is in Spanish, although a few tracks on each album were recorded in English. Although her albums are not readily available in the U.S. record shelves as they are in Spain and Latin America, they can be found on the Internet. She has sold more than 1,000,000 records since 2002.
Chenoa was born in Mar del Plata, Argentina on June 25, 1975, although her family moved to Majorca, Spain, when she was seven. She grew up in a musical family; both parents were musicians who used to sing in hotels at live music shows. At the age of 16, Chenoa began to sing professionally, taking part in her parents' show. When her mother fell ill, Chenoa had to stand in for her.
She graduated as a nursery school teacher and started performing in the Casino de Mallorca shows when she was 20. There, Chenoa acquired a good stage presence before entering the first edition of the Spanish television show Operacion Triunfo (a talent-search contest for the Eurovision Song Contest) in 2001.
