Ana Maria Rodríguez (born February 22, 1974 in Havana, Cuba) is a Cuban-American singer who has recorded under the stage names Ana and Mía. She relocated with her family to Miami, Florida in 1979. In 1984, Rodríguez signed to Parc Records when she was 10 years old.
Rodríguez's self-titled first album was released in 1987, and while it was not a hit in the US, it did achieve success in Japan. "Shy Boys" was the first single taken from the album. With the help of New Kids on the Block producer Maurice Starr, Rodríguez recorded under the name of Ana for Epic/Parc Records, a CBS Records subsidiary. This production became her second USA release, Body Language, with most songs produced by Starr and includes the duet "Angel of Love" with New Kids' Jordan Knight. Debbie Gibson also contributed several songs to the album, including "Everytime We Say Goodbye" and "Friendly".
After years of absence, Rodríguez re-emerged under the name of Mía and released an all-Spanish language album entitled "Tentación" on Univision Records in September 2003.
