Ersi Arvizu on Boxing and Music

May 31, 2009

Ersi Arvizu has been making music for years. She had a hit in the sixties when she performed with her sisters. She's just released her first solo album, "Friend for Life," produced by Ry Cooder. Arvizu tells Jim Fleming about growing up longing to get involved in the sport of boxing. Her dad ran a boxing gym for boys in their backyard. We hear how this passion for a then boys-only sport has shaped her music to this day with clips from the new album.
