Watching Alyson Alonzo sing is a spiritual experience. When she’s performing at a bar or venue, you can hear a hush wash over the crowd as soon as she releases a string of breathy notes. She’s that good. Apparently, she’s been that good for a while.

Alonzo told the Current in a recent interview that when she was 6 or 7, her grandfather knew she had vocal talent and recorded her singing “America The Beautiful.” He played it back to Alonzo’s family as she, not yet being able to stand the sound of her own voice, hid in a refrigerator box in the next room. Eventually, the siren from San Antonio’s South Side started writing her own music, and through the encouragement of an online collaborator she met on MySpace, discovered for herself that she actually could sing.



On Friday, the singer celebrates a full decade of playing shows in San Antonio and blessing audiences with waves of alternative R&B goodness.

$4, Fri April 20, 9pm, La Botanica, 2911 N St Mary’s St., (210) 716-0702, vivalabotanica.com.
