Charo :: From ’cuchi-cuchi’ to ’sexy sexy’
You have seen her all over the place performing what has become known as the cuchi-cuchi girl's comeback song, "Sexy Sexy." The song, though, wasn't written for Charo, but was originally intended for Britney Spears and was written by Charo's son and songwriter Shel Rasten.
She premiered the internationally popular song on "The Wendy Williams Show," then provided her adorning gay fans a treat with performances at New York City nightclub Splash's F*Word Party, and again during this year's White Party in Palm Springs.
It has been over 45-years since Charo made her American television debut on "The Today Show." Now nearly 30 years away from the limelight, she has resurrected her career. This time around, even in the twilight of her entertaining days, Charo is determined to do things her way using her classical and flamenco guitar skills as the means to captivate an audience.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
