The Tejano music industry has lost one of it’s most loved artist. Emilio Navaira age 53 passed away Monday night, after suffering a heart attack at home. Condolences are being sent to the Navaira family by his fans, his fellow musical brothers and the members of the Tejano music industry. Emilio along with Selena are credited with the popularity of Tejano music in the 1990’s.
I had the pleasure of meeting Emilio, in the mid 80’s when I was an on air personality at Radio Station KEDA in San Antonio. He had just started his solo career, after being a member of David Lee Garza y Los Musicales.
On behalf of Musicatejana.com our condolences to his wife, children and the Navaira family, May his soul rest in peace with our heavenly Father.
