She was invited as a special guest at the "Latin Carnaval" which presents Beaches Jazz in Toronto Canada (2019). Additionally, she was invited as a vocal soloist in different thematic concerts by the Departmental Band of Fine Arts in Cali, Colombia. Finalista of the Reality Show "CANTA CONMIGO - A OTRO NIVEL (SING WITH ME - ON ANOTHER LEVEL)"(2020-2021) of the Caracol Colombia channel, an experience that gave her visibility and recognition at the National level, reaffirming her great passion for the BOLERO.
