What Happened?: Patsy Torres and "Que a Pasado"

Patsy Torres brings us the random tune for today, called Que a Pasado. Patsy Torres is a Tejana artist from San Antonio, Texas who started performing and singing at a young age and who was discovered while still in high school. Seeing music as a way to finance her college studies, she recorded her first album while in school. Her website claims that she was the first Tejano artist to film a music video, and the first to play Tejano music on a nationwide television broadcast. She continues to play music, but she also recently earned a PhD in educational and organizational leadership and is active in many San Antonio organizations, as well as promoting her Positive Force Tour concerts for young people. She has been inducted into the Tejano R.O.O.T.S Hall of Fame. Que a Pasado can be found on her 1997 album ...Bien Protegida.
