All together, the Divas discography includes 9 albums released through Shea Records and East Side Records. This year marks the 15-year anniversary of the founding of the Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea.
Their first GRAMMY Award was in 2009 for Best Regional Mexican Album of the year for their release of Canciones De Amor.

In addition to their musical career, the Divas have appeared in independent films including Dead Man's Shoe, Ren and La Dentista, in which music from their album was used in the movie's soundtrack.
