The one and only, Selena Quintanilla!
At a very early age, the Mexican-American singer and songwriter was one of the greatest artists of her time! Selena’s fun and spunky personality made fans everywhere fall in love with her! Whether she was in Mexico or America she packed out venues, as she performed on stage with her band, a.k.a her family.
Selena grew up in a family-oriented home, in which her father pushed her and her siblings to learn Spanish at a young age. Thanks to Mr. Quintanilla, Selena y Los Dinos, which consisted of her and her older siblings A.B. Quintanilla and Suzette Quintanilla, would eventually put out some of the greatest Spanish hits. Selena became the ‘Queen of Tejano Music’, made it to the top of many Billboard music charts and into their Latin Hall of Fame, and was nominated for a grammy for her album Selena Live!, which went on to win best Mexican-American album in 1995. Along with her beauty, both inside and outside, and her extraordinary talent as a musician, Selena was also a fashion designer. In addition to all of her accomplishments in music, Selena opened up Selena Etc. Boutique, which was a boutique, salon and clothing store based out of Texas.
On March 31, 1995 millions of fans mourned the legendary singer, as she was fatally shot by her manager and ‘friend’ at just 23 years old. Since then, tons of celebrities have expressed Selena’s impact on both their lives and music careers, such as Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and more.
