On Feb. 22, Impact Nutrition, a new healthy shake store, hosted an open mic. Two TAMU-CC students performed at the open mic. The first artist that performed was Michael Villarreal. Villarreal plays guitar and sings both Spanish and English songs. He also writes some of his own music. Villarreal has performed at various Patio Jam’s on campus as well.

“It’s a great feeling when I get the opportunity to share my passion for music with others,” Villarreal said.

The second artist that performed was Isaac Neyra (Ike Celso). Neyra writes and performs his own rap, R&B and Latin music. Neyra is a versatile artist from Houston, Texas where he first discovered his talent in music when his grandfather gave him a guitar. Neyra started out as a musician, not a vocalist.

“I started off just wanting to play guitar,” said Neyra, “but I accidently got put in choir in junior high due to a scheduling issue. Ever since then, I have been singing.”

Since he has only been in Corpus for a short time, Neyra said it’s been difficult to re-establish a fan base in a new city and environment. Neyra has also just dropped his newest album “Late Night’s and Early Morning’s,” and several new singles.

Villarreal and Neyra are both upcoming artists in our community. If you are interested in hearing their music, the links for their social media accounts are listed below:
