RACHEL RIVERO of GITANA MUSIC is a native of San Francisco, California. She & her sister were raised by their single mother and because of a crazy life, they moved often. However, piano lessons and church were a mainstay of her childhood years. She lived in Venezuela as a small girl but was brought back to California at age three so she is fluent in both English and Spanish; a great help living in California!
Rachel lived her adolescent years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Family struggles took her to writing poetry and sing as much as she could in church. As time moved on her poetry became songs, writing her first ditty at age 12.
Rachel Rivero and her musician husband, Daniel Posey are a "yours, mine and ours" phenom family of seven kids.
Through good and tough times music has remained Rachel's favorite mode to elevate the Lord and encourage others; besides some fun Valley and love songs, the Lord is the focus of her writing and singing.
In 1995 when she moved to the Great San Joaquin Valley, Merced became her new hometown. After a few summers fighting the Valley heat, she began to realize there was a deep charm and camaraderie amid the people of the region. Although born in "The City" Rachel is a country girl. She loves wide open spaces!
Rachel's relationship with God, her children and husband, are solid. She hopes in the coming years to continue to do more music than ever and especially be able to do her own songs along with Daniel who plays guitar, drums, pedal steel, banjo, bass and mandolin. Oh! He sings sweet too. Daniel and Rachel lead worship together in Merced and Delhi regularly and have been guests at churches around the Valley.
Besides being a mom wife and Worship Leader for the last 18+ years, Rachel is a resident of California, the US, the planet, and hopes that the music she and Daniel do, encourages all Peoples Tribes and Nations to Love their Lord their God with an offering of Universal Worship!
