Mariel Colon, 30 – from Puerto Rico – made her musical debut in Mexico this week with her single ‘La Abogada’, which translates as ‘The Lawyer’.

After Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman – the former cartel leader – was imprisoned for life in 2019, Mariel took a break from the law to focus on showbiz.

The talented attorney said in a statement obtained by Newsflash: “Whoever knows me knows that since I was little I wanted to be a singer, it is a subject that I was passionate about.

“I have always been postponing many things, many stages in my life to finish my professional career as a lawyer.

“In fact, during the case of Mr Guzman I had to give up going to an audition.”

Now she says she wants to inspire young people by showing she can take on two careers at once.

She added: “I think I can do both.”

So far, Mariel has not been able to get in touch with her notorious client, but says she hopes he will support her.

From the age of 11, Mariel began taking part in talent shows at school and at the age of 15 she began taking singing lessons.

But as she grew older, she took a different carrier approach and entered law school.

Mariel currently lives in New York City, where she also has her own law practice specialising in difficult clients like El Chapo and Jeffrey Epstein.

The young beauty says that she envisions herself as a versatile artist, and promises to keep working hard in hopes of motivating other women to fight for their goals.
