Google celebrates Selena with doodle tribute

FilmMagic for Bonnaroo Arts And Music Festival

Selena Quintanilla, the iconic Queen of Tejano music, was honored Tuesday with a Google Doodle and a special exhibit to commemorate the legendary Mexican-American singer's self-titled debut album. Widely popular across the TX/Mexico border since the 1800s, Selena y Los Dinos' infectious brand of Tejano music popularized the genre to audiences globally.

"Selena has always transcended cultural boundaries, and having this Doodle featuring a strong, Latina woman on the homepage of Google around the world is a ideal example [of] that", Suzette added. After performing at the Tejano Music Awards, Selena signed with EMI's label Capitol Records and began recording her first album which was released on October 17 of that year.

The Google Doodle's animated video tells her story, from childhood to stardom, and features Selena singing her hit single "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom". She joyfully sings into a microphone brush and performs in various venues and outfits with her band.

Selena was shot to death in 1995 at the age of 23.

Selena Quintanilla - better known as Selena - joins Dolores del Rio, Gilberto Bosques Saldívar, Juana Paula Manso, Carmen Miranda and Chava Flores in the list of Latinos honored by Google through its doodle, image that frames the most used web browser. "She started when she was really young and she became this fantastic artist". Two years later, Jennifer Lopez starred as the singer in the eponymous film, reflecting Selena's superstar status. Campos also wrote of how Selena influenced her life and the affect Selena's legacy has had on her. Watching her showed me that this hybrid cultural identity of mine was a valuable gift I should embrace. In her free time, she was also active in community service, including being a strong advocate for education. While her time was cut short, her impact on the Latina community and industry as a whole started a wave of inclusion and empowerment for years to come.

In addition to the doodle, there are memories of Selena in an online exhibit on the Google Arts & Culture site.
