From Valley Stage to an International One

UTRGV School of Music alumnus Clyde Guerra
RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TEXAS – 
UTRGV School of Music alumnus Clyde Guerra this year found himself living out one of his dreams –  getting to showcase his talent on television.  Guerra was a contestant on the singing competition La Voz, the popular Mexican equivalent of The Voice in the United States“When I auditioned, I felt I was putting myself out there. I had never done something like that before,” the Roma native said. “And I said, if it happens, it happens; if it doesn’t, it doesn’t.”  Guerra started his journey by sending in an application to the show, along with an audition video. Getting the call from La Voz producers in March to come in for an audition was surreal, he said, but he certainly wasn’t going to pass it up. (June 2019)
