Chris Pérez, Selena’s Husband, Faces His Past and Looks Forward, Musically

¿Quién es más macho? Mayor Julián Castro, Chris Pérez and Councilman Diego Bernal

For his show Sunday at the Alamodome, Pérez will perform a song from Resurrection and a few of the tracks he recorded with Estefan. “The EP? I’m not sure, they’re too rock [for the festival], but we’ll see,” he said, referencing the Chris Pérez Project tracks.

No matter what he plays, he’ll go onstage feeling better than he has felt in years. Is this a second “resurrection” for him?

“Second resurrection?” he said. “You’re right. It’s the first time I heard it put that way. It’s true.”

But why now? Was it the book? Time itself? He seems far away from the reclusive, shy, tormented person he used to be.

“I just came to terms with a lot of things,” he said. “I got tired of being portrayed as el viudo [the widower], and whenever my photo was on TV they’d put all this somber music like … [makes haunting noise]. Even when I won a Grammy all they’d ask me about was Selena. It never goes away. But…”

Then he stops, thinks for a few seconds and clarifies.

“If you’re going to print this, I don’t want anybody to get the wrong idea,” he said. “I’ll always love Selena, she’ll always be a part of me and she’ll always be in my heart and I’ll always think about her. But to do an interview and to have 80 percent about me and 20 percent about her, that’s awesome for me, because it used to be the other way around. But we talked about many other things, especially things about my present work. I understand 99.9 percent of the time I’ll have to speak about her, and that’s fine. Her legacy is going to live on for a long time, and I’m very proud of that and I want to help it move forward.”
