The legacy of late Tejano icon Jimmy González lives on through his children as they are giving back to their community by providing meals for frontline heroes during this current COVID-19 pandemic.
The kids of the music legend are donating chicken plates to nurses in his hometown of Brownsville, Texas, according to Rio Grande Valley television station CBS 4.
Henry González, son of Jimmy González, told CBS 4, “He would always dedicate performances on their behalf because of what they’ve done not only our city but for our nation. So, we’re out here and we figured we’d do this for our dad and continue the inspiration that he gave us to do something like this.”
The González family donated 75 to 80 meals after seeing the impact the pandemic has had in the community, according to the report. They wanted to make sure they did their part to help out and carry on their father’s lifetime commitment to charity and service.
Jimmy González was a pioneer, a legend, and a multiple Grammy Award winner that achieved international acclaim as co-founder of one of the most successful Tejano groups ever, Mazz. He died of cardiac arrest in June 2018 at the age of 67.
