Newsclip®: [Entertainment] Family, friends of Tejano icon Navaira celebrate his music at memorial - San Antonio Express-News

"After a lifetime of packing stadiums from Chicago to Monterrey, Mexico, Tejano music icon Emilio Navaira packed one final house: a memorial held in his honor Sunday. On Sunday, an estimated crowd of more than 12,000 gathered to mourn Navaira at Freeman Coliseum, where his family hosted a public visitation and rosary. At the farewell, people smiled, took pictures and even broke out in spontaneous chants and bits of song. Others posed for selfies and group pictures alongside collages and pictures of Navaira that ringed the concourse, just like they would have at a live performance. Before his death, Navaira filled that same coliseum with his rugged voice and a charismatic presence that many grew to love during multiple performances throughout his career. [...] Navaira’s legacy of chart-topping Tejano hits garnered years of success and a legion of fans now mourning the man who became a staple of Texas culture in the 1990s.",
