Google Doodle salutes Selena, the 'Queen of Tejano,' with stunning musical animation

Google Celebrates Singer Selena Quintanilla's Music And Legacy With An Animated Doodle (Video)

Google premiered their first-ever Selena Quintanilla Google Doodle, an animated singing cartoon of the late Mexican-American singer created to celebrate the life and legacy of one of Latin music's most formidable stars.

Selena was killed on March 31, 1995, in her hotel room, by the president of her fan club and manager of her boutiques, Yolanda Saldívar.

October 17, 1989 marks the day of Selena's first album release with Capital EMI, self titled "Selena", which would lead to five more albums.

Here's How Much Donald Trump's Net Worth Decreased Over the Past Year
The new Forbes report also reveals the bar has never been set higher for being ranked among the 400 richest Americans . In February 2017, Forbes pegged Trump's net worth at around $3.5 billion , down $1 billion from the previous year.

Tuesday's Google Doodle is a celebration of the life and music of Selena, otherwise known as Selena Quintanilla-Pérez.

In honor of the 28th anniversary of Selena's debut solo album, Google showed its love for the Tejano superstar by replacing their logo with a sketch of Selena. I even sang Selena classics in talent shows across northeast Texas [photo evidence below, courtesy of my Mom]. Her final album, Dreaming of You, was released posthumously in July 1995 and became her first No.1 on the Billboard 200. "Aside from incredible dance moves and how to belt some serious notes, watching Selena taught me that being Latina was a powerful thing, and that with hard work and focus I could do whatever I set my mind to", she said. She was sentenced to spend at least 30 years in prison.

By the time of her third album, Entre A Mi Mundo (1992), Quintanilla had begun a relationship with her new guitarist Chris Perez, a match her father disapproved of for fear it would destabilise her career. Watching her made me proud of being Mexicana.

Opinions: Reaction to Liverpool v United
"Even at the start of the season I don't think Liverpool fans expected them to win the title - I certainly didn't". As for those watching from the stands or on TV, Mourinho described the second half as "a game of chess".

"I think in our culture, we are united", Suzette Quintanilla, Selena's elder sister, tells The Washington Post.

Selena was always making music, even before anyone knew her signature name. Selena has her own animated Google Doodle.

The Google team also compiled an interactive online art exhibition which showcases some of Texas native icon's possessions, including stage outfits, fan mail, the Grammy she received in 1994 for best Mexican-American album and more.
