Michael Salgado was inducted into La Musica del Sur de Tejas (The Music of South Texas) at the Ben F. McDonald Library in Corpus Christi, Texas on Saturday (October 16).
The vocalist and accordionist has released over a dozen albums and has been honored with many accolades over his 20 year career in music.
“It’s great to know that we’re able to leave something behind for people to remember and embrace,” said Salgado.
The 2016 Latin Grammy nominee performed his classic hits “Palomita Blanca,” “Sin Ella” and “Cruz de Madera” accompanied by his brother Ernie Salgado for the enjoyment of all in attendance.
The induction, now in its fifth year, celebrates the history of Tejano music with photo galleries, vinyl records, magazines, instruments and other contributions.
Salgado’s album Por Cielo Y Tierra is nominated for Best Tejano Album at the 2016 Latin Grammy Awards schedule for November in Las Vegas, Nevada.
