Puro San Antonio girl Jennifer Espinoza, who will be touring North America with "The Queen Extravaganza," rocked American Idol a few minutes ago. The bad part is that the tour won't be stopping in San Antonio anytime soon: it goes to Dallas on June 19 and Houston on June 20.
How naive I was. I thought San Antonio had enough Queen fans and enough people to support a local girl who sang so well she beat dozens of singers from all over the world and was chosen by Queen drummer Roger Taylor himself to be part of the group. I guess I was wrong. — Enrique Lopetegui
