Accordion 2…Jennifer Pena: The Latin Star Returns on Her Own Terms

On this week’s episode of the Accordion 2 Me podcast, Corpus Christi native, Jennifer Peña sits down for her first in-depth solo interview, since leaving the public spotlight in 2007.

Gracing stages all over the world, the Tejano and Latin Pop star has cemented herself as the top entertainer in Latin music from accolades by the Grammys, Premios Los Nuestro, the Billboard Latin Music Awards, and the Latin Grammys just to name a few. But in this interview with Tejano Country artist Veronique Medrano, Peña provides a look at her career through her eyes and in her own words, catches up with fans on the trajectory of her career since her rise to fame at 11 years of age to now, and discusses her much-anticipated return to music, after stints on Telemundo’s reality programs “Asi Se Baila” and “Top Chef VIP”.
