Sunny Ozuna of Sunny and the Sunglows Suffers Mild Heart Attack

In 1963, San Antonio group Sunny and the Sunglows, with lead singer Sunny Ozuna, made it to number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 12 on the R&B charts with their song Talk to Me.

Last Wednesday morning, singer Ozuna was rushed to a San Antonio area hospital with a mild heart attack. A coronary stent was inserted the next day, a close friend told the site My San Antonio. "He came through with flying colors. Thank God everything came out alright. He scared the hell out of all of us, man."

Also on Thursday, Ozuna wrote on his Facebook "To all my fans, thank you for all your prayers and good wishes, just having regular maintenance done, all is well and I am fine."

This wasn't the first time Ozuna has had heart problems, having suffered heart attacks in both 1987 and 1999.

Ozuna was one of the first Mexican Americans to appear nationally on American Bandstand and went on to more hits with the group. In the 1970's, he became popular in the Tejano music scene. He won the Grammy Award in 2001 along with a number of other stars from the genre for Best Tejano album, Que Es Musica Tejana?
