Myra – Myra (2001)

Myra (aka Mayra Carol Ambria Quintana) was a Mexican American teen plucked by Disney for stardom. Sound familiar? It should, as Britney, Xtina, Justin and a load of others were also bred and molded by the Disney factory. Unlike her contemporaries, however, Myra failed to make any significant mark on the pop charts. Her song “Miracles Happen” appeared on the Princess Diaries soundtrack with the hopes it would grab a young audience for her. Her subsequent album consisted of what you’d expect, teen pop a la Britney, with a small dose of R&B flavour, produced by the usual pop producers of the time, most notably The Matrix. At the time of it’s release there were several other female teen pop stars jostling for attention (many of whom will also be featured here), and Myra was lost in the crowd. According to her Wikipedia entry (but not her Myspace page) Myra is releasing an album called “Hot” in November, with appearances by the likes of Gwen Stefani and T.I.. If so, the girl has a lucky second chance to make it work. Hopefully for her, “Miracles Happen”, cause she has a very steep hill to climb…

  4. I remember seeing her in the Max Keeble movie and her music videos, "Miracles Happen" (for the Princess Diaries movie), and "Dancing in the Street" (for the Recess: School's Out movie and translated into spanish for another DCOM movie, "Gotta Kick it Up.")
