A candlelight vigil will be held Thursday for Tejano music legend Emilio Navaira in Houston.
Houstonians are expected at a candlelight vigil for Emilio, also known as “El Rey Del Rodeo,” which will be held at a local Houston landmark, Dorado Western Club, famously known as El Dorado Ranch.
Dorado Western Club has opened its doors to Tejano fans for decades bringing acts from all over Texas including the late Emilio Navaira. He was set to perform at El Dorado on May 28th.
Monday was a sad day for the music industry all around, but especially in Texas. Pictures, memories and music flooded social media following the sad news of his passing. The news broke late Monday night of the passing of the Tejano mega star, who had just performed over the weekend in Mexico at Arena Monterrey to a record breaking crowd.
It wasn’t long ago that Emilio had made headlines following a tragic bus accident which almost claimed his life, as well as the lives of his band members in 2008, after a show in Houston. Fans gathered for prayers to show support for him and his family and it was with a lot of courage and strength that Emilio managed to make a miraculous recovery and was able to return to the stage for his adoring fans.
Today, he leaves an immense sadness in the hearts of many Texas natives.
