Sunny Sauceda has decided to have surgery in May to repair a torn meniscus after he injured his right knee during a recent performance on March 17.

Sauceda, who always performs high-energy shows for his fans, said he suffered the injury near the beginning of his Univision Fan Fair performance.

“It’s two minutes into my KXTN performance,” Sauceda told Tejano Nation. “When I did my first knee drop, that’s when I felt it. I dropped, then when I leaned back I felt a pop. Got up, my knee was wobbly and I felt weak, pain, but I had to push through. So, I played the whole show with all my weight on my left leg. No one could tell, I played it off.”

The singer and accordionist finished the full show that night and also performed the following night at the Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair.

“That’s what separates the men from the boys, the show must go on,” he said.

The two-time Grammy winner was diagnosed by his doctor with a torn meniscus in his right knee.

“It’s a common injury,” he said. “Mine is kinda extreme, it is a bucket handle tear, so it’s intense.”

Sauceda still plans to perform as scheduled for Fiesta De La Flor, the two-day music festival that honors Selena in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas, on Friday, April 13. His other scheduled April performances include Tumbleweeds nigh club in Houston, the Galveston Rodeo and Fiesta San Antonio.

“I’m gonna tough it out and play thru the injury,” he said.

The Tejano ROOTS Hall of Famer also plans to release the official music video for his latest hit “Que Te Vaya Bien” on April 3.
