Born in January 15, 1951 in Murcia, Spain, Maria Rosario Pilar Martinez Molina Baeza or Charo as she is known to millions is a multi-talented singer, dancer, comedienne, actress, and award-winning classical guitarist who trained under Andres Segovia. She was discovered early in her life by famed bandleader Xavier Cugat who promptly married her. She has spanned the decades bringing joy to everyone who sees her or listens to her music. Her trademarked "cuchi, cuchi" comes from her nickname for her dog from childhood. Charo says: "I was 3 years old and I had a dog called Cuchillo, and when Cuchillo was happy he wiggled. When I was very young I copied him and I used to say 'como Cuchi, como Cuchi' - like Cuchi, like Cuchi. Everybody thought that it was very cute when I wiggled and say cuchi-cuchi, and they give me cookies and candy. Now, every time I say cuchi-cuchi, people give me money."

Charo currently lives in Beverly Hills with her husband Kjell and performs all over the world on cruises, community theaters, symphony concerts, Vegas-style extravaganzas, and private corporate functions on a regular basis. You can see her often on VH-1 (I love the 70's, Best Week Ever, etc.) as well as every year on the MDA Telathon.


Charo has produced six albums and numerous singles with more to come!
