Austin-based Tejano music artist Mia Garcia was honored June 6 by the Texas State Senate in recognition of her historic win as the youngest person to win a Tejano Music Award. This win raised her profile significantly across music genres and brought about international attention from international news anchors such as Jorge Ramos from Univision and Felicidad Aveleyra from Telemundo.
State Senator Kirk Watson of Austin issued a proclamation highlighting Mia’s achievements in music and academics and also gave her an authentic Texas Flag flown over the Texas State Capitol in her honor. Official acknowledgments like these are humbling for any individual and Mia is no exception in this regard.
“I am very grateful to all of those who have believed in me and mentored me along these few short years in the industry.,” said the soon-to-be seventh grader from Austin.
Next up for the award-winning rising Tejano star is more music. Her next single, “Lost in the Middle of Nowhere,” will be released later this summer.
