Latin pop singer Merche was among the galaxy of stars launched via the Spanish television amateur talent showcase [RoviLink="VW"]Operaci+¦n Triunfo. Born Merche Trujillo Calleata in Cadiz, Spain, on June 14, 1974, she competed in the program's 2002 debut season and, while not a winner, earned a strong enough fan following to land a record deal with the Vale Music imprint. Merche's debut LP, Mi Sue+¦o, arrived in stores in 2002 and included the hit single "No Pidas Mas Amor". Its follow-up, Aut+¬ntica, appeared in 2004, going platinum like Mi Sue+¦o before 2005's Necesito libertad went double platinum in Spain. Merche's success continued on Cal y Arena (2007) and Acordes de Mi Diario (2010). ~ Jason AnkenyPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
