The new Lydia Mendoza stamp

Lydia Mendoza

Born in Houston, TX, Lydia Mendoza (1916-2007) was a popular Tejano music singer whose career spanned seven decades.

Mendoza first learned to play the guitar from her mother and grandmother. She used their teachings to join the family group, recording her first album alongside her mother, father, and sister in 1928. Not long thereafter, Mendoza branched off on her own, recording more than 1,000 songs with her 12-string guitar.

The Lydia Mendoza stamp is available today as a Forever stamp.
