January 30: Actress and singer Eiza González is 24-years-old today.

  Eiza González Reyna was born in Caborca, Sonora, Mexico on January 30, 1990 . She is the daughter of former Mexican model, Glenda Reyna. She currently lives in Mexico City, is fluent in Spanish, English and speaks some Italian.

At 14, she was accepted to Televisa's acting school, Centro de Educación Artística, in Mexico City and where she was first spotted by producer and director, Pedro Damian, best known for his success with Latin pop band, RBD. Two years later, Damian cast González in a remake of Argentina's famous children's telenovela, Floricienta.

Then Eiza portrayed "Lola," the lead female protagonist in Lola...Érase una vez. The show began filming in late 2006 and debuted in Mexico on February 26, 2007. González went on a national tour throughout Mexico to perform songs that she sang on the show.

Lola...Érase una vez ran for two seasons before ending in early 2008. Following the completion of Lola...Érase una vez, Eiza, accompanied by her mother, moved to New York City briefly to attend a three month course of acting classes at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in the spring of 2008.

She returned to Mexico City in early fall that same year. In April 2009, González was cast in the popular crime drama television series Mujeres Asesinas as a supporting lead role character for the second season.  
Eiza signed with EMI Televisa to record her own album as a solo artist in late 2008. Her debut album, Contracorriente (Counter-current in English) was released in Mexico on November 24, 2009. It was released in the US on January 26, 2010. The album's only single, "Mi Destino Soy Yo," was released in Mexico on October 20, 2009. In June 2011, Eiza announced that she would not return to film or television projects until the album was completed.

Eiza completed production on her second album during the first months of 2012. Her first single, 'Te Acordarás de Mí', was released for digital download on iTunes for Mexico in April 2012 and May 2012 in the U.S. Te Acordarás de Mí was released on June 12, 2012 in Mexico for physical and digital format; it was released digitally on iTunes the U.S. on the same day.

The album contains 12 songs; González co-wrote three of them. Te Acordarás de Mí debuted at number 66 on the Mexican Charts. "Invisible" was released on the radio in Mexico on August 1, 2012.
