FAIRFIELD — Mexican singer and actress Graciela Beltran has been added to the entertainment lineup at the Solano County Fair.

She will perform Aug. 3.

Beltran will be joined by Banda La Movida, which will open the concert with its own set before Beltran joins them on stage.

Born in Mexico, Beltran began her music career entertaining friends and neighbors when she was a young girl. Her mother decided to move to Los Angeles when Beltran was 6.

Beltran’s music career took off when she first stepped onto a professional stage. Under the name Gracielita Beltran, she began recording albums of norteño, banda and mariachi music with local musicians.

A few years later, she was noticed by record executives at EMI, who offered to produce her next record. “Baraja de Oro” was one of the first singles and biggest hits from the six albums Beltran recorded with EMI.

Aside from music awards, Beltran is also proud of the professional collaborations she’s done. She has worked with Ednita Nazario, Emilio Navaira, Los Tucanes de Tijuana, Chalino Sanchez, Banda Machos, Grupo Modelo, Conjunto Primavera and most recently with El Chapo de Sinaloa.

Her compilation album with Selena, “Las Reinas Del Pueblo,” has sold five million copies worldwide. She has also worked with producers such as Juan Carlos Calderon, K.C. Porter, Bebu Silvetti and Joan Sebastian.

Beltran was the special guest in 2006 for the White House celebration of Cinco de Mayo.

She has appeared in five films and accumulated a discography that features 20 original recordings. Her career also includes appearances on various TV shows.

The Solano County Fair runs July 30 through Aug. 3 at the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo. Hours are 3 to 11 p.m. July 30-31 and Aug. 1, noon to 11 p.m. Aug. 2-3.

Other performers include Con Funk Shun on opening night, Little Anthony and the Imperials, July 31, Los Lobos, Aug. 1 and The Guess Who, Aug. 2.

Concerts are free with fair admission. All begin at 8 p.m. expect Beltran’s, which begins at 7 p.m.
