For millions of fans, the late Selena Quintanilla is still very much alive through her music and her legacy. And now, the star, whose life was tragically cut short when she was murdered at age 23 in 1995, will continue to live online in with a special tribute in her honor. The “Queen of Tejano music” is getting her own Google doodle, commemorating Selena, her first official debut album, released on October 17, 1989.
“What a great way to celebrate an icon. I think it will bring great joy to all her fans who follow her and look up to her as a role model,” says Suzette Quintanilla, sister of the late beloved singer. “Selena would be so excited. It’s such an honor.”
