The music legend will celebrate his 80th birthday as part of the Onda Live! Chicano Music + Culture Fest later this month.

Little Joe is a music legend with a career that spans more than 50 years and the iconic singer will celebrate his 80th birthday later this month in a special way due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.


The five-time GRAMMY winner made the birthday event announcement during the Season 1 finale of Tejano America, a Tejano music and cultural web series. “I’m pleased to share with you a special invitation on a momentous occasion of mine, my upcoming 80th birthday,” said Little Joe, who recovered from COVID-19 after testing positive this summer. “While we can’t celebrate in person due to coronavirus, I’m throwing a virtual epic celebration and this is your personal invitation to join the party.”
