“Aqui Estas” is the highly-anticipated collaboration from Tejanas Unidas En Cristo, a project featuring 25 incredible female voices sharing an inspirational message of hope, that was officially released on Monday. An official music video with a beautiful visual for the song was also released.
The video was filmed on a South Padre Island beach this past summer by director Ryan Bazan. The project was put in the heart and mind of Rio Grande Valley singer Genyva Salas Monjaras and was a major accomplishment for her.
“I was able to put something together that God put in my heart that I thought was impossible but God showed me that He provides and He wanted this to come to pass and I did it with Him and of course with the help of the girls and the people that helped me there that day of the filming of the shoot,” Genyva tells Tejano Nation. “God’s timing is perfect was perfect. Everything and everyone that was involved in this video was meant to be on this project because that is what God put in my heart.”
“Aqui Estas” is a Spanish version of the Christian worship song “Way Maker” and was recorded in the famous Legends Sound Studios at Freddie Records in Corpus Christi, Texas, featuring the voices of Genyva, Shelly Lares, Patsy Torres, Margarita Canela, Di Marie, Demmi Garcia, Cortney, Marisela Hernandez, Crystal Torres, Anjelique, Rebecca Valadez, Machy De La Garza, Cristina Salinas, Magali Delarosa, Krystalina Vallejo, Vee González, Alyssa Torres, Monica Saldivar, Savannah Votion, Perla Quintanilla, Sarah Monique, Anikka Garza, Stephanie Bergara, Aisha Aparicio, and Christine Philip.
A passionate documentary is planned to be released soon that shows the amazing story of bringing together 25 Tejanas with a purpose, a vision, and a God.
