Before It’s News reports:
The 11-year-old was born in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2002 to a Mexican mother and an American father that had music in their blood. She started playing the piano at the age of three and by the age of six became a professional musician, hence the word “prodigy”.

Her mother Maria Luisa Martinez, a native of Guadalajara, saw right away that even at the age of three she had a gift for understanding rhythm and possessed an excellent memory for music.
