Jaime DeAnda was released from the hospital on Christmas Day just days after the Conjunto icon was placed in the intensive care unit at San Antonio hospital after a medical emergency on December 21.


The news was shared by DeAnda’s management, Envy Road Entertainment, via text to Tejano Nation. “We got the best Christmas wish miracle we could have asked for. Jaime DeAnda will be discharged from the hospital later on today (Dec. 25). We would like to thank all his fans and his supporter for all your prayers and give an extra big hug to ones you love because you never know.”

DeAnda had a medical emergency on Dec. 21 and was hospitalized in ICU, according to a social media post from his wife, Darlene DeAnda, on Wednesday (Dec. 22). More details on the medical emergency were made public by his manager, Julian Johnson, in a statement that said, “Jaime Deanda could not breathe on his own due to swelling of his tongue and throat closing on him. Physicians and surgeons put a trachea in him to help him breathe.”

The frontman for Jaime Y Los Furiosos had successful surgery on Friday morning that allowed him to be taken out of ICU to recover enough to be discharged from the hospital on Christmas Day.

DeAnda’s career spans more than 40 years with most of that time spent as the frontman of Jaime Y Los Chamacos, he split with Los Chamacos in December 2018. The band had been cranking out hit songs together since 1982, releasing many successful albums and classic hits including “Yolanda,” “Mi Musica Favorita,” and many more. They received multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations and were inducted into the Tejano R.O.O.T.S. Hall of Fame in 2011.

With the love and support of his family, DeAnda started playing music at the young age of six years old. He grew up in an environment where hard work and dedication to learning one’s craft were instilled in him. This allowed him to record his debut single, “Un Puño de Tierra,” at the age of 15. His stylistic artistry is well known throughout the music industry, which has cemented his place as one of Tejano’s top musical artists.
