"My father was my idol; I wanted to be just like him," Linda Escobar, 57, said. "He told me I had to go into this business with both feet, and I needed to be sure."
She'll celebrate 50 years as a Conjunto and Tejano singer on Saturday at the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds in Robstown.
At 7 years old, Escobar had her first performance at one of her father's shows. He hesitated to let her on stage because he had never heard her sing, Escobar said.
"I begged him to let me go up there, but he didn't know if I could keep up with the beat and stay on key," Escobar said. "I told him I knew I could do it, and when I sang, people came up to the front of the stage to hear me. I felt like I was a hit from that moment on."
Her single "Frijolitos Pintos" was released the next year and sold 1 million copies. At 8 years old, Escobar had a Gold record. Since then, she's had such hits as "El Corrido De Kenji" and "Mi Cantina."
Escobar said her favorite genre to sing is Conjunto which separates itself from Tejano music by using accordion and guitar, she said.
"In Conjunto, there's more heart and more feeling; I've lived the ins and outs of it," Escobar said. "When I sing, it's from the heart and it's more powerful for me."
Since the launch of her career, Escobar has gained recognition from the Texas Music Office and was inducted into the Tejano Roots Hall of Fame in 2003, and the Texas Conjunto Music Hall of Fame in 2012.
