America’s Got Talent (AGT) will host auditions in San Antonio January 12 & 13, 2013. If you have a talent or act you think America will fall in love with,  start preparing now for this audition. Director of Mariachi Charros de Oro – Baldemar Villarreal – said he had a great experience accompanying Sebastien De La Cruz who climbed all the way to the semi-finals on the most popular television reality show of the summer. America fell in love with the 10-year old mariachi singer from San Antonio and fell in love with mariachi music. Baldemar says he highly recommends giving it a shot as the experience is second to none.

Baldemar was one of 10 mariachi musicians from San Marcos who donated their time to accompany Sebastien De La Cruz. They appeared live on national television in front of millions of viewers 6 times. Two performances were held in Austin, 1 from Las Vegas and 3 LIVE performances from New York City took place this summer. Sebastien De La Cruz and Mariachi Charros de Oro opened the door for mariachi musicians and vocalist.

The time is right. If you’ve got the talent, and the time, do it, go for it, audition. We’ll be supporting you all the way!
