A celebrated actress as well as a popular singer, Rosario became one of Spain's premier media stars in the mid-'90s, and her celebrity continued in the years that followed. Though better known by her full name, Rosario Flores, she bills herself simply as Rosario on her albums. The daughter of Antonio González (aka El Pescaílla), a musician, and Lola Flores, a dancer, singer, and actress, and the sister of Lolita Flores, an actress, and Antonio Flores, a singer/songwriter, Rosario was born on November 4, 1963, in Madrid. She began her career in the mid- to late '70s; billing herself then as Rosario Rios, she recorded ¿Que Querrá Decir Esto? (1976) for CBS and acted in the film Al Fin Solos, Pero... (1977). Not much came of her efforts during this period, and her career went cold until 1984. In that year she acted in a made-for-TV Spanish miniseries, Proceso a Mariana Pineda, and recorded another album for CBS, Vuela de Noche.
