Susan Ochoa is one of the clear examples of perseverance and struggle, because although she is now successful, the artist did not have it easy at first because since her father passed away, she had to work very hard to financially support her family at the age of 13 years. The Chiclayana woman sold little fields, Martians and vegetables, as well as singing on buses with the hope that the passengers would fall in love with her voice and would like to collaborate with her to be able to bring bread home. Time later, her life would put her on stage.

Susan Ochoa knew of the talent she had for singing and in 2004 she sought to become known in the “Super star” contest, which she won. She later participated in the program “La voz Perú”, in which she came in second place with the renowned national singer Gian Marco as a coach.
The artist rose to stardom when, along with other famous composers such as Eva Ayllón, Jesús ‘El Viejo’ Rodríguez and Pelo D’Ambrosio, she traveled to Chile to be part of the contestants at Viña del Mar. Ochoa sang “Ya no más”, a topic that deals with violence against women. Her interpretation earned her two Silver Gulls for best performer and best song.
Given this victory for the country, Susan was decorated by the Ministry of Women and Vulnerable Populations and the Ministry of Culture. This is how the Peruvian woman became recognized and the public adopted her as one of her favorites.

What was the conflict between Susan Ochoa and Gisela Valcárcel?
Many years ago,
Susan Ochoa was invited by Gisela Valcárcel for “Artist of the Year”. In said contest, the Chiclayana faced the salsa dancer Daniela Darcourt, who finally emerged victorious. Given this, the popular “Señito” asked the interpreter of “Mr. Lie” to applaud, but she refused.
Thus, Gisela Valcárcel told her: “It doesn’t matter who comes out first, it doesn’t matter if it was Susan Ochoa who won two Silver Gulls, we should all rejoice.” This was not taken in the best way for the singer and she used her social networks to announce her withdrawal from the “blonde” program.
“For me, the Seagulls have great value because I have dedicated them to you, it has cost me sacrifice, sweat and tears. I did not achieve them because of scandals. For me, they have great value, ”he declared. “Out of dignity and respect for my person, I decided to step aside. She told me ‘Susan, you’re nothing more than anyone.’ At what point did I feel more than someone? Mrs. Gisela felt uncomfortable because the public perceived something from her and complained to her. In all of her explanations, she implied that I am not someone and it made me feel bad. Those kinds of comparisons are irrelevant, I kept quiet, but in recent days I felt bad.
