Georgetown, Texas -  The first song focused and dedicated to the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Civil Rights achievements has been launched by the Martinez brothers. Both Jose G. Martinez Sr. and Rodolfo "Rudy" Martinez released the song "Ahora-Si Se Puede" in May. A copy was presented to Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA).
Rudy stated, that he and Jose had written the "LULAC lyrics in the song with words identifying where LULAC has taken a stand representing individuals with Civil Rights issues of employment, education, housing, and immigration, etc. It also includes, "All for one and One for All" to remind members to remain true to their Motto." The song was composed in three rhythms,  Salsa, Ranchera and Merengue to reach a diverse LULAC membership and audience.
Jose is a well known Tejano style singer and band player in the Wisconsin area and has performed in many state music and festival venues.
Rudy is the current Chair for LULAC's Texas Civil Rights Committee, which says, that the funding generated by sales of the CD would be used to run the Civil Rights program. Rudy was also responsible for the first LULAC "Salud To Hispanic Women" in September of 1988 in Milwaukee,  Wisconsin.
The Martinez brothers introduced their CD at the LULAC State Convention in Houston, Texas over the weekend. They will also be making their CD available during next month's National LULAC Convention in New York City on the first weekend in July.
