She has been featured on many local and international television shows. She was a participant on the international hit show “La Voz Kids” (NBC) – Season 3, where she received a “3 chair turn” and a standing ovation from all the judges as well as the audience. Natalia Jimenez, a Spanish singer, songwriter and coach on La Voz Kids, praised her for having “a voice of a Goddess” and being an “exceptional vocalist.”

She also was a contestant and first place winner on “Sabado Gigante” (Univision), one of the nation’s longest-running Spanish-language television programs.

In 2015, she was chosen and personally asked by the Quintanilla family to perform Selena’s hit “No Me Queda Mas” at the 35th Annual Tejano Music Awards. In 2016, Isabel performed for the official MAC Selena makeup line world-wide launch in Corpus Christi, Texas. That same year, she performed with the San Antonio Symphony for the Fiesta Pops Concert.

Isabel released her second album “Sigueme” with the legendary Mr. Abraham Quintanilla, “Mr. Q” (Selena’s father), at Q-Zone Records alongside Grammy-award winning producer Brian “Red” Moore. Her new album features a duet with Mexican-American songwriter Pete Astudillo, backup dancer and singer for the band Selena y Los Dinos.
