This is such sad news for not just the Tejano and Country music community, but for everyone who was a fan of Emilio Navaira‘s music. The Tejano legend passed away on Monday night at his home in New Braunfels after suffering from a massive heart attack. He was only 53 years old.

According to a statement from the New Braunfels Police Department, “emergency responders were dispatched to a home in the 6300 block of Myrtle Run for reports of a 53-year old man who was found unconscious and not breathing by family members.” Navaira was later pronounced dead at Resolute Health Hospital in New Braunfels.

The San Antonio native made a name in the ’90s alongside Selena and La Mafia, and also crossed over to English-language country music.
