Last night Grammy-winner Tex-Mex singer Emilio Navaira made his official comeback as a guest performer of Clay Walker at the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels, Texas. This performance marked his first full-show performance after his bus crash in March 2008. He has been performing sporadically singing one or two songs on stage, you can watch a video clip from a July performance.
Emilio was behind the wheel when his tour bus crashed into a Houston highway median; he was ejected through the windshield. He sustained major head injuries that many believed he would never recover from. When he awoke from his four-day coma he went through extensive rehabilitation.
The singer is well known for his Tejano music having more than ten singles on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart. He is known as the “Garth Brooks of Tejano” music with such hits as “It’s Not the End of the World” and “Por Siempre Unidos.” Last night he performed new music, “She Won’t be Lonely Long” and “Where Did I Go From You” to a very enthusiastic audience.
