The Museum recently discovered an old interview that the late Queen of Tejano had done in 1994 with Tejano USA before performing at the Texas Live music festival at Hemisfair Park in San Antonio, Texas. Found as an un-marked videotape inside an old video camera, the video has now been donated to the Smithsonian for their Spanish-language project with Univision, according to Vivala.com. The video has been digitized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.

While the tape had gone undiscovered, the director of the video had been looking for the missing raw footage for years following Quintanilla’s death, as the Museum has revealed.
