Stephanie Eileen Alvarado Elizarraraz

August 9, 1983 - May 15, 2017

Stephanie Eileen Alvarado Elizarraraz was born August of 1983 and raised in Norwalk, California.
Her talent was recognized at the tender age of 6 when a local band leader, Sebatian Juarez, heard her sing “Angel Baby” at a family function and without hesitation invited her to sing at all his gigs. Her loving family encouraged her to develop her immense voice by taking her to her performances and supporting her young career. She continued to perform locally in talent shows, community events and church functions.
As a teenager, she was managed by Isreal Cortez who groomed her and advanced her career by connecting her with musicians and producers.
Stephanie’s soulful sultry voice has been heard by many not just in her home town, but around the world. Her voice took her on tours throughout Asia and parts of Europe. She also performed for the USO Tour in Baghdad for the United States troops with the band Soto. She shared the stage with groups such as, Malo, Brenton Wood, Tierra, Rocky Padilla, El Chicano and Teena Marie. Her voice is also featured on a new song “Hideaway” by Opra that will be released worldwide in summer 2017.
Her untimely medical condition, cancer, forced her to stop her singing career to focus on her health. Stephanie was also a licensed vocational nurse, wife and and mother of three handsome boys. She gained strength from her strong belief in God and the support of her family, friends and fans. No matter what the future held, the stage of life was hers and she stood front and center claiming Victory.
