Artists from all over the country, from Garth Brooks to Juanes, are continuing to perform live without leaving their homes. It’s become a necessity as music venues shut down again in the face of increasing coronavirus cases. And it likely won’t change anytime soon.

That means singer and bands have lost most if not all of their income. Livestreaming has become more important than ever. And we’re here to showcase some of the best.

Crystal Torres performs at 11 a.m. Tuesday over at the Preview from the Houston Chronicle Facebook page. She’s from Iowa but moved to San Antonio to pursue a career as a Tejano singer.

Torres lists Sunny Ozuna and Little Joe, Shelly Lares and Selena as influences. She won the Tejano Music Award for best new female artist in 2014.

If you like the Preview from the Houston Chronicle page now, you’ll get a notification for our next Chron concert. They happen at 11 a.m. Tuesdays and Fridays.


Crystal Torres

Years active: Been performing professionally since 2013

Genre: Tejano (although I sing multiple genres such as country, pop, and R&B in my setlist)

Latest project: Working on second album, as of yet untitled

Where you’re from: I am originally from Iowa but moved to San Antonio in 2009.

Where we can find you online: I am on most social media and music outlets.

Why we should pay attention to you: I truly sing from the heart. If I can help any person get through any emotion they are feeling, then I’ve done my job well.

Why it’s important for people to support local art right now: If we do not support local artists then we cannot continue to produce content, especially at this time.  The arts bring us joy and help us bridge cultures. It helps support both our well-being and the well-being of our community, which is important during these difficult social and economic times.
