San Antonio’s Mariachi’s Got Talent

A dear friend of  mine loves the NBC show America’s Got Talent. She says it is so inspiring to see people completely go for their dreams. I agree!

And now, an amazing voice is all the buzz around this show and that voice is from San Antonio, TX! I’ve not ever met Sabastien De La Cruz but I have seen him perform and his voice blows me away – every. time. It was no surprise when Sabastien received a standing ovation and praise from all three AGT judges, Howie Mandell, Sharon Osborne and Howard Stern. My favorite part is at the end when he says, “My whole family … they love music. I love my family and they give me the music.” He’s not only a big voice but such a gentleman!

When I read Mariachi’s Music Blog that the group behind him are mostly current and former Texas State University – San Marcos students, my heart burst with pride! My alma mater! Ever since I was a student, I have admired Texas State’s Latin Music Program. (This isn’t the first time Texas State University students have been on America’s Got Talent stage. In 2008, the Texas State Stutters reached the semi-final round. Eat ’em up Cats!)

In 2011, Texas State University won 1st place in the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza in San Antonio and Sabastien De La Cruz won 1st place in Elementary School – Vocal Competition Category.

Best wishes to you Sabastien and Mariachi Sur del Oro!

¡Viva Sabastien! ¡Viva Texas State! ¡Viva Texas!
