Award-winning Tejano singer Tristan Ramos is recovering after emergency brain surgery on Friday. The youngest male artist to win a Tejano Music Award shared the news via social media from a hospital bed after the surgery.


“It was unexpected. I got really sick, real dizzy. I came to the hospital unexpectedly and they told me I was going to have to have emergency brain surgery,” said Ramos in the video. “With the grace of God, I’m still here. I’m still standing, anything is possible with God.”

He thanked fans, Siggno frontman Jesse Turner, and Magic 106.9 FM morning host Jennifer “Chismosa” Martinez for continued prayers. The accordionist will share more details on his recovery over the next few days.
