Cynthia Sánchez Vallejo is famously known as the daughter of Rosalino “Chalino” Sánchez Félix and Marisela Vallejos.
His father was a successful Regional Mexican singer who was famous for narcocorridos. Like his father, Cynthia’s elder brother was also a well-known Mexican singer.
Cynthia Sánchez Vallejo Parents
Her father, Chalino, was born in “Las Flechas,” a small ranch in Sinaloa, and belonged to a low-income family, but his dreams were big as he always wanted to be a singer. Cynthia’s mother’s name is Marisela Vallejos.
Marisela Vallejos and Chalino Vallejos were married in 1984 in a simple and intimate ceremony. At the time of their marriage, Marisela was expecting Adán, Cynthia’s elder brother. After his birth, the couple was later blessed with Cynthia.
Her father, Chalino spent a very hard childhood time. In 1975, when he was just 15 years old, a man raped his sister. Two years later, a fire of revenge arose when he saw that man at a party, so he shot the man with his gun and fled to Tijuana.
He worked as an immigrant smuggler in Tijuana and later illegally migrated to Orgon, US, without documents.
After some time, he left Orgon to live with his aunt in Los Angeles, and there he did multiple jobs, including dishwasher, car dealer, and drug smuggler. Chalino also helped his brother in illegal migration.
During that time, Cynthia’s father met with her mother through a cousin and tied a bond together. What inspired her father to write was his brother Armando’s murder.
He composed his first ballad inspired by this tragic event, and then he didn’t stop and even composed during his time in prison.
He was getting paid for his compositions, which pushed him into Mexican singing. The first cassette of Chalino’s songs was recorded in 1989.
Cynthia Sánchez Father: Chalino’s Murder
While performing at the Salon Bugambilias in Culiacán on May 15, 1992, someone from an audience member sent a note to Chalino.
It was exactly four months after the Coachella incident in which Chalino had a gunfight with Eduardo Gallego on the stage during his performance. It is believed the note contained a death threat, and Chalino crumpled the note and went to perform.
A video recording of the song “Alma Enamorada” shows Chalino crumpling up the note before singing the song.
As the club closed, Chalino left with his brothers and some other companions. When they were on their way, a group of armed people stopped them and asked Chalino to join them in their car as they were looking like state police.
The next morning on May 16, 1992, Chalino, 31, was found dead with two bullet wounds on the back of his head near the irrigation canal on Highway 15. The unfortunate death of Cynthia Sánchez Vallejo’s father left her mother a widow.
Cynthia Sánchez Vallejo Brother, Adán Sánchez Death
Adán Santos Sánchez Vallejo was born in 1984 and died in 2004, 12 years after his father’s murder. Adán was a reflection of his father as he was known as Adán Chalino Sánchez in honor of Chalino Sánchez, his father. He also adopted the same profession as his father and worked as a Regional Mexican musician.
On March 27, 2004, a week after the concert, Sánchez went on a promotional road trip through Sinaloa, the state where his father was born. He was driving his father’s 1990 Lincoln Town Car for going to a concert in Tuxpan, Nayarit, Mexico.
Unfortunately, the car tire blew on the highway between Rosario and Escuinapa. According to the police, the accident was caused by Adán losing control of the vehicle. This accident caused him many severe head injuries, and Cynthia Sánchez’s elder brother died at just 19.
