“Our thoughts and prayers are with the Navaira family during this difficult time,” the singer posted on Facebook with the video. “Please accept this song requested by the fans, along with our most heartfelt condolences.”

“Juntos” is hit ballad from 1992 and one of Navaira’s most known songs.

“With the passing of Emilio Navaira, we were bombarded with people who wanted a particular song as tribute from me,” Veronique told Tejano Nation Radio. “It wasn’t something I necessarily expected. I appreciate the man, I definitely aspire to be him in a performance aspect, as a performer, as entertainer as it comes to the legacy that leaves behind.”

Accompanied by pianist Joe Mattingly, Veronique, wearing a beautiful black gown, belted out a soulful rendition of the powerful ballad at the Newman Catholic Center in Iowa City, Iowa.

“It was a little nerve-racking…It was the first time I ever performed that song,” Veronique added.

The video, which has been viewed over 30,000 times, also showcases photos of Navaira with fans, friends and family.

Veronique, a Best New Female Artist nominee at the 2014 Tejano Music Awards, plans to release her sophomore album, Mi Año Dorado, in June.  The first single from the album, “Te Entrego Mi Corazon,” is out now.
