Who are some other examples of Mexican American singers?

Two of the most famous Mexican American singers use Anglo-sounding stage names.

Freddy Fender was born Baldemar Huerta; Vikki Carr was born Florencia Cardona. Both openly embrace their Mexican American heritage. In songs such as”Before the Next Teardrop Falls” (1975), Fender displayed the unique brew of country, blues, and Mexican folk known as Tex-Mex music.

Can won a Grammy in 1991 for her album Cosas del Amor.
