The official music video for “El Mundo Va Extrañarte”, a song that pays tribute to late Tejano icon Jimmy Gonzalez, premieres exclusively on Tejano Nation today!
The tribute song was the idea of Frankie Caballero Jr., who also invited fans of Gonzalez to participate in the video filmed at Prim’s Place in Alamo, Texas and RV Station in Donna, Texas.
The visual, filmed by Ryan Bazan, features five of the six talented vocalists that are a part of the tribute project, including Caballero, Ricky Guzman III, Cristina Salinas, Sarah Monique and Cezar Martinez.
The collaboration also features singer Lisa Mar and amazing musicians, including Caballero’s father Frankie Caballero on accordion. Mazz members Jay Alaniz on guitar and bass and Cris Perales on keyboards, who also arranged the amazing song.
Gonzalez was a pioneer, a legend and multiple Grammy award winner. He co-founded Grupo Mazz in 1978 and went on to achieve international acclaim as one of the most successful Tejano groups ever. He died of cardiac arrest in a San Antonio hospital on June 6 at the age of 67.
“El Mundo Va Extrañarte” is available now at all digital music platforms.
