Myriam Hernandez at Fillmore Miami Beach October 15
It's a well-recorded rule that a smart man never speaks of a woman's age. Still, Myriam Hernández is no spring chicken, which isn't to say the 43-year-old Chilean songstress and TV personality isn't still a hottie. But she's put in her time — and then some.
Hernández began her lifelong stint in entertainment at the tender age of 11 when she appeared on Generación Joven in her native Chile. She tallied other small-screen appearances on soaps and shows such as Sábado Gigante. But not until 1989 did she break into the music biz, launching her career as a singer with an eponymous debut, fueled by "El Hombre Que Yo Amo" ("The Man I Love") and "Ay Amor" ("Oh My Love").
Fast-forward 22 years, and the singer-songwriter continues to tour and record, delighting fans with her signature heart-wrenching, romantic, Latin pop ballads. In all, she has released eight albums, including 2007's Enamorandome as well as eponymous albums Dos, III, and IV (no doubt the work of some label marketing geniuses), which spawned hits such as "Ese Hombre" ("That Man"). No doubt, there will be more discs and more hits.
