Bimba started her career as a model, and has appeared on various magazine covers, including Vogue, as well as on runways in major cities like New York and Paris. She began singing later on in her career, forming a group called The Cabriolets in 2007.
The late 41-year-old also recorded a song with her late uncle, singer Miguel Bose, in 2007. “Como un Lobo” was on Miguel’s album Papito, and they performed it at the 2007 Latin Grammy Awards. Upon learning of Bimba’s death, Miguel took to Twitter to mourn his niece. “Have a good trip Bimba, my accomplice, my partner, my love, my dear daughter,” he wrote. “Guide me.”
Bimba had her first breast cancer operation in 2014, but by June 2016, she revealed the disease had spread to her “bones, liver and brain.” Although she was continuing treatment, she lost her battle just seven months later. So devastating.
