Rising star Emanuel J received his Tejano Music Award for Best New Male Artist before his performance at Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair 2002 at historic Market Square in San Antonio, Texas on Friday night (March 18).
The singer, originally from Colorado, won the award during the 41st Tejano Music Awards, which was held virtually on television last November. The Texas Talent Musicians Association, producers of the TMAs, normally hand out the awards at the following TMA Fan Fair event in March.
Emmanuel J commented, “Ever since I was a kid growing up listening to Tejano music, watching the Tejano Music Awards on VHS — some of you kids may not know that that is — I’ve always wanted one of these. So, thank you guys so much for making it happen. Thank you to my fans for all their support. My family, my biggest support system. So, thank you guys so much for this, this means a lot.”
