Singer Gloria Trevi, who has sold 22 million albums since she burst on the scene in 1985, told Efe that she still suffers from stage fright.
“They don’t pay me to sing. They pay me for what I feel before I go on stage,” the 44-year-old Mexican star said during a visit to Miami for Thursday night’s Premios Lo Nuestro awards gala, where she performed her new single, “Gloria.”
“I get very nervous. So the first notes are almost always kind of out of tune,” Trevi said.
The singer said she decided to do a cover of “Gloria,” which was a mega-hit oin the 1980s for the late Laura Branigan, to inspire listeners to “success, victory, grandeur, light, glory.”
Besides scoring a string of hits as a recording artist, Trevi has written songs for Edith Marquez, Anahi, Alejandro Fernandez, Espinoza Paz, Alejandra Guzman and Pandora.
