Tune in to HBO Sunday, Jan. 31 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT) for the Rosie O’Donnell special titled A FAMILY IS A FAMILY IS FAMILY.
The special touches on various modern day family structures told through the eyes of young children and includes musical performances with reggae star Ziggy Marley, folk musician Elizabeth Mitchell and Boerne based Mariachi “L.” Mariachi “L”? That’s right. Mariachi “L”! Producers of the documentary wanted a young boy, between 5-10, who could sing and play mariachi music. They saw a video of Martin Luevano (now 12) posted on mariachimusic.com and liked the way he sang. They learned about his 7 brothers and sisters who all sing and play mariachi music together and selected Martin and his siblings for the special. Martin sings “Carino,” a song about love. The Luevano Family will celebrate their HBO appearance with a performance tonight at Las Palapas at 6:30 p.m. in Leon Springs off I-10 West near Boerne. Congratulations to Marshall and Maggie Luevano (mom and dad who also make a brief appearance) and the entire Luevano Family. It doesn’t get bigger than HBO!
