Salma Hayek is a woman full of talents. Leaving acting aside, there is something she would surely be successful with and even win awards for. Although not many people know it, the actress has her facet as a singer, and honestly, she does it very well. Her voice can captivate anyone.

The Veracruz-born singer has several hits such as ‘Siente mi amor,’ ‘Quédate aquí,’ ‘La bruja,’ and a couple of other songs. In fact, she has exploited this gift while acting as when she played the Mexican painter in Frida or in Desperado, a film where she shares the lead role with Antonio Banderas.

Salma Hayek Has Music in Her Veins

Last year, the Mexican star celebrated her 56th birthday, dancing and singing with mariachi, because she has always shown she is proud to be Mexican. On one occasion, she also dazzled the French with her voice during her participation in the program The Stars Come Out for ELA, where she sang ‘Historia de un amor,’ with Carlos Alarman.

Salma Hayek’s musical talent is something she shares with her mother, who was an opera singer and hoped that the actress would follow in her footsteps, but it was not something she wanted: “I never wanted to sing or dance trap,” she told the newspaper ‘Le Parisien.’
