SAN ANTONIO, Texas (KXAN) — Tejano Singer Jimmy Gonzalez of The Real Jimmy G Y Grupo Mazz has died.
Gonzalez’s record label confirms the singer died at a San Antonio hospital Wednesday morning. Gonzalez was taken there after his blood sugar level dropped. Eloy Leija, a promoter for the group’s label, says Gonzalez, who co-founded the group, had health problems related to diabetes.
Leija says Gonzalez was returning to his native Brownsville following a show and stopped in San Antonio to see relatives when he became ill with low blood sugar issues and suffered cardiac arrest.
Jimmy Gonzalez y Grupo Mazz earned six Latin Grammy awards for Best Tejano Album, most recently in 2014 for “Forever Mazz.”
The Grammy Award Winner was 67 years old.
