Tejano legend Emilio Navaira has died, according to multiple sources and colleagues.
The singer suffered a “massive heart attack” Monday, the sources said. He was 53.
Fans and fellow Tejano musicians began expressing condolences late Monday night on Facebook.
“Rest in paradise my Friend Emilio Navaira. I was just with him and Raulito 5 de Mayo weekend laughing about old times. My heart goes out to all his familia. Gonna miss you brother,” A.B. Quintanilla posted.
Quintanilla is the brother of the late Selena, who recorded the ballad “Tu Robaste Mi Corazon” with Navaira.
