The very first video recorded by a Tejano artist: Patsy Torres “Lover to Lover”

I was just surfing around on You Tube under Tejano Music and found this video. The description states Vintage Patsy Torres music video Lover to Lover. First music video ever recorded by a Tejano artist and the first to be played on MTV”. It doesn’t give the year, going by the big hair and the outfits, I’d guess somewhere between the late 80s and around 1990.

Seeing this video made me want to learn more about Patsy. The best bio I could find on her is the one on the CD Universe site, quite an impressive bio, makes me wonder why we don’t hear more about her. Click HERE (and then click on “full description” to read it).
