18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Jennifer Espinoza

Rock Singer. Jennifer Espinoza performing at Six Flags Texas (San Antonio) - my only opportunity to photograph this singer during the fall lineup of 2019 at this theme park. I took roughly 950 shots between two 30 min. performances - back to back one hour apart - on that day. Jennifer has a long association with Six Flags dating back about 10 years. Her professional career includes touring with the Queen Extravaganza when she was just 16 years old. She won a competition to be included in the band and in the finalist stage was chosen personally by Roger Taylor who was the drummer in the original band, Queen. Brian May, that band's celebrated lead guitarist also was part of the selection process in its final stages. Both were the organizers of the Extravaganza.
