Emilio began his career as lead singer for David Lee Garza Y Los Musicales in 1983, eventually leaving the group for a solo career in 1989 recording more than 15 studio albums. In the 1990s, the San Antonio native focused on his crossover to Country music. His first country music single, “It’s Not the End of the World,” reached the Top 30 on the country charts in 1995. His album, Life Is Good, was a surprise success as well reaching No. 13 on the Top County Album chart. His 2002 album Acuérdate won the Grammy Award for Best Tejano Album and his 2007 album De Nuevo won the Latin Grammy Award for Best Tejano Album. Emilio died of a heart attack at age of 53 on May 16, 2016.
