Marta Sanchez was born in Madrid, Spain on May 8th, 1966. She's the daughter of Don Antonio Sánchez Camporro, and Doña María Paz López Pestonit. Marta has a twin sister, Paz, who was borm prematurely and had to stay in an incubator.
With 12 years, Marta studied at Véritas' school in Madrid, a religious school. It was a very strict school in its customs. When she went to school, she always forgot to do some homework and as a result she always got in trouble with the nuns.
At age 14 she did her first performance for a TV show for children called "Sabadabadá" in TVE1.
At 15 years of age she transformed into a pretty young lady that almost always put her wavy hair into a pony tail. She made havoc between the boys in the neighborhood. She liked to dress in black and bright colours. She liked to put on make up, appearing older than she was. She really enjoyed dancing, and every weekend she went to the "Pachá de Tribunal" nightclub to have fun with her friends. She spent hours and hours dancing to the sound of music.
When she turned 18 years old (1984), she put together her first "book" (portfolio) with photos so that she could make herself known to the producers of the different recording studios. The photographer perfectly remembers that day with Marta Sánchez, at that time still a perfect stranger, one of the many who put together a "book" in order to move forward in looking for their first opportunity. This young lady seemed completely different, at all times more sure of herself, of how she wanted to look in the photos, in what she favored and what not. From the start, she guided the photographer, and she was completely convinced that the success which she was waiting for was very near.
It was during the Christmas season of 1985, that her first single with the group "Olé Olé" enlitled "Lilí Marlen" was played on the radio. This song really came into light in January of 1986, when it reached the number one spot on the charts. Her first appearance on television was in the program "Tocata", broadcasted on January 15, 1986. It was then that she made herself known to the televiewers. Her first album titled "Bailando sin salir de Casa" came out in May of 1986. With this album her dreams became reality, receiving her first gold album. This success continued with songs like "Déjame Sola" (Leave me alone) y "Mirame Bien" (Take a good look at me) (authentic blues), still her favorite song from this album was the ballad "No te Necesita" (She doesn´t need you).
Her second album with Olé Olé was "Los caballeros prefieren rubias" (Gentleman prefer blondes) came out in May of 1987, begining with the launching of the first single "Sola" (Alone), reaching the number one position on the charts. The sales of this album exceeded 150.000 copies. With the launching of this album, there came a change of image.

She recorded with "Olé Olé" a comercial for Coca Cola, in this comercial one could listen to "Supernatural", a song found in the third album of the group entitled "Cuatro hombres para Eva" (Four men for Eva), published on June 3, 1988.

Everything went wonderfully and was re-broadcasted on TVE1. In 1991 "Olé Olé" recieved the prize "Aplauso 92" in Miami for being the best latin group of the year. On the 6 of July of 1991, Marta felt obligated to pose naked for a magazine that does not need to be mentioned. With this she became more popular in all of the country.
By surprise and after being with "Olé Olé " for 6 years, she decided to abandon the group in October of 1991. Marta did this to further enrich her professional career and to do other types of music. While she is in New York, she prepares her launching as a solo singer. She spent quite a bit of time in New York perfecting her english and taking classes in singing and dancing.
