         WHEREAS, The Dallas-based regional Mexican band La Energía
  Norteña is celebrating the seventh anniversary of its founding in
  2019; and
         WHEREAS, Established in 2012 by Adrian Zamarripa and Moises
  Cuevas, La Energía Norteña reflects their love of Norteño saxophone
  music; that same year, the six-member group won a talent contest and
  later garnered a recording contract with Azteca Music Group and
  released its first album, Pensando en Ti; and
         WHEREAS, The band began touring the U.S. and Mexico, reaching
  a young audience and reenergizing the Norteño genre with a fusion of
  traditional sounds and contemporary rhythms; in 2015, its album
  Cruzando Territorio earned a Latin Grammy nomination and yielded a
  Top 20 hit, "El Amor de Mi Vida," which has become its signature
  song; it received a second Latin Grammy nomination in 2018 for "El
  Sueño Americano," in the Best Regional Song category; its most
  recent album, El Crossover, includes new interpretations of a wide
  variety of English-language pop and country hits; and
         WHEREAS, While advancing its career, the group has also
  sought to benefit those in need; it donated proceeds from a November
  2018 concert in San Antonio to St. Jude Children's Research
  Hospital, and it has since focused on even more substantial
  fund-raising for the organization; and
         WHEREAS, La Energía Norteña has brought joy to countless
  fans, and as it works to build an even larger audience, it is indeed
  a pleasure to recognize its accomplishments to date; now,
  therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 86th Texas
  Legislature hereby congratulate La Energía Norteña on its seventh
  anniversary and extend to the members sincere best wishes for
  continued success; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for the group as an expression of high regard by the Texas
  House of Representatives.
