Oscar De La Rosa, singer of Grammy-winning band La Mafia, has COVID-19.

The group made the announcement to fans through social media.

“Oscar De La Rosa is quarantined at home to recover from COVID-19”, reads the post office. “Thank goodness Oscar has been vaccinated and is not as sick as he could easily have been. Please, if you don’t have your vaccine and have access to get it, GET -LE, maybe that can save your life. “

De La Rosa has remained engaged with fans throughout the pandemic, posting radio interviews, flashback photos and what he eats for dinner.

The Houston band released their debut album in 1980 and were one of Tejano’s first groups to reach international audiences. The band’s last album was from 2018 “Voze“, a reimagining of their successes with Kam Franklin, Cristian Castro, Ana Barbara and others of the Suffers.
