Emilio

Emilio Navaira is a Grammy-winning Tejano and country singer. Navaira's tour bus was traveling north along west 610 Loop near the Southwest Freeway when it crashed into a set of freeway barrels shortly before 4 a.m. He is clinging to life in a Houston hospital. His fans are praying for him. Doctors say he is now stable, but he faces a difficult recovery at best, and may never perform again.

I hope with all my heart this does not become an obituary thread. This is a really big story for Tejano music fans. (It also appears Emilio was driving his own bus without a proper license, but maybe we don't need to argue about blame for the accident for now?)

Eight other members of his tour were injured, some seriously.

I read about this the other day. I hope at the very least he has a speedy recovery and at the very most is able to perform again.

I really like that YouTube clip under 'singer' in the post. I'm really hoping for the best for him. Tejano / Conjunto music is such wonderful fun.
