Fans of Grammy and Tejano Music Award Winner Emilio Navaira gathered at the historic Market Square in San Antonio to pay tribute to the fallen star on Friday (May 20).
Hundreds of fans were in attendance and held candles and Emilio memorabilia in honor of the Tejano star.
“I just want to say, my brother will never die and I am just so overwhelmed with all the love that I feel right now because of all of you,” Raul Navaira said. “Pray for my mom because she is really broken.”
Many Tejano Artists were also on hand to perform an intimate set for the crowd. Costumbre performed their hit song “Estar Enamorado,” a duet with Emilio Navaira. Art Tigerina, Los Desperadoz, Sunny Sauceda and Javier Galvan were also in attendance to celebrate the life of Emilio Navaira.
