Grammy nominee Ramiro Herrera is a legend in the Texas music industry. His is one of the rare musical careers to successfully span three decades.
Ram became the lead singer for David Lee Garza Y Los Musicales in 1981 and audiences across the country saw him shine like a star. So bright in fact that he was signed to his own high-profile solo recording contract. Selena often opened shows for him and it was Ram Herrera on the bill with her at the now-famous concert at the Houston Rodeo depicted in the Selena movie. Now, in the middle of his career, twenty years and twenty-four records later, Ram's new "Ingrata" CD is nominated for a La tin Grammy Award.
In addition to Gold Records, Vocalist, Entertainer, Song and Album of the Year Awards, and a Grammy nomination, Ram has received the Humanitarian Award and Texas Governor Ann Richards' recognition for his work with Teach the Children. It's easy for an entertainer to be described as a good person in a press release. It's altogether different to be known on the street as a man who gives from his heart. Ram has been a driving force for the Brown Santa organization, collecting toys and food for those who would otherwise do without. Through services such as the Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner and the Texas Diabetes Association, Ram’s efforts have bettered many people’s lives.
Ram Herrera has the biggest, smoothest voice in Texas. He leads "The Outlaws" a red hot horn-powered big band that owns the stage, thrilling audiences on everything from hooky cumbias and power ballads to cool Salsa grooves and hot Latin rock. Ram, his band, and his organization put musical quality and production value first and it shows in the incredible excitement they generate in town after town, night after night. Ram is excited about his relationship with Tejas Records which he feels will allow him to make more of the best CDs of his career. His 25th CD will be his historic first "Live In Concert" album, recorded by Grammy award winner Malcolm Harper and set for release on October 1st, 2002. Pre-production is starting now for his next studio project, the follow-up to the internationally recognized "Ingrata" album.
