Fatal car crash claims Nashville matriarch Azucena Rios and seriously injures children Luna and Giovanni; benefit concert September 16 at Limelight

From Pablo Garzon of Serenatta:
Luna Morena, the wonderful singer who has joined Serenatta many times, had an automobile accident on August 30. Azucena Rios, her mother, and Giovanni, her brother, were with her in the car. Doña Azucena did not survive. Luna and Giovanni suffered serious injuries.

To help them in this difficult time, several bands will be playing on Wednesday, September 16, at the Limelight Club in Nashville. Serenatta will be playing at 7:45 pm. There will be a $5 cover charge (please read information below).

I encourage all of you to come to enjoy this Latin concert and particularly to show your generosity by donating to the Rios Family. There will be a table for donations. Sheyla Paz Hicks, of Paz Communications and SPANISH-TV, will help us to collect the money. Thanks.
