It was at the beginning of this month when the singer’s health deteriorated and she remained hospitalized for several days, although so far neither the causes of death nor the reasons that led her to the hospital have been revealed.
In the duet’s social networks, it was explained that Amparo Higuera Juarez was delicate since the beginning of 2021, but they never lost faith that she would recover, so they asked for the help of their followers to make chains of prayers.
“Where there’s life there’s hope. God is big and powerful. God bless my partner Amparo from ‘Las Jilguerillas’. I want to thank you very much for your prayers Friends and Friends and Thank you for your support in these difficult times for your family, friends, fans, and for me who love her so much and she knows it. Blessings, “wrote on Facebook on January 6 Mercedes Castro, the other member of” Las Jilguerillas “and who came to the group after the death of Imelda, sister of the now deceased.
Mercedes herself asked a few days ago to continue with the chain of prayers so that Amparo would overcome this bump in her health, but she did not explain the reasons for her hospitalization.

“Las Jilguerillas” was a recognized Mexican regional duet made up of Amparo and Imelda Higuera Juarez , who rose to fame in the mid-50s with songs like Chaparrita consentida and Ojitos charming .
Thanks to their popularity they were able to venture into successful films from the golden age of Mexican cinema, such as El Rey, Maldita Miseria, and La Coyota, among many more.
In addition to their great legacy in Mexico, they also had a strong presence in the United States, where their success has continued to this day.
The group, originally from Cañada de Ramirez in the municipality of Numarán, in Michoacán, continued with its presence on the music scene until in 2004 it suffered a severe blow due to the death of Imelda Higuera Juarez.
The death of Amparo’s sister did not stop “Las Jilguerillas”, since Mercedes Castro was integrated into it, who until today supported the first voice of the female Mexican regional duet.
Amparo Higuera Juarez received recognition three years ago for her extensive career. The government of the state of Michoacan awarded the State Award for the Arts Erendira 2017 to the member of “Las Jilguerillas”
