Late Tejano singer Selena remembered in Google Doodle tribute

Google Celebrates Life Of'Queen Of Tejano Music Selena Quintanilla With A Doodle

Google on Tuesday paid tribute to Selena Quintanilla, the late star known for hits like "Dreaming of You" and "I Could Fall in Love". According to Billboard, on 17 October, 1989 'Selena', Quintanilla's first ever studio album was launched after which she went on to gain a strong foothold in the music industry with five more albums.

However, the Doodle itself is animated and plays "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom", one of the singer's popular songs featured on the 1994 album "Amor Prohibido".

"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 Quintanilla, the late singer's sister, said in a statement.

Her life and subsequent murder were the subject of the 1997 biographical film "Selena" starring Jennifer Lopez, which has become a cult classic for fans.

But it's going all-out on its homage to Tex-Mex star Selena Quintanilla, who is today's doodle honoree. "I think it will bring great joy to all her fans who follow her and look up to her as a role model", in a statement given to Forbes. This is a ideal example that her memory is very much alive and her legacy is growing.

Goalkeeper Huda dies after tragic collision
The club described him as " the Real Legend of Persela " in a tribute on Twitter . The collision caused Huda to stop breathing and resulted in a cardiac arrest.

Her dad encouraged her to sing in Spanish to connect better with the Latino community and with that, her popularity among Tejano music fans grew.

Instead of the usual doodle background note, Campos wrote a heartfelt account of how as a little girl she was taught by Selena to believe that "no matter who you are or where you come from, anything is possible", she wrote. The exhibit includes photos of her iconic outfits, her first Grammy, auto and artwork from her fans.

Suzette admits she never thought to have a Google Doodle created of her late sister. It features Selena transforming from a young child to a young adult.

The idea to salute Selena with a Doodle was the brainchild of Perla Campos, the Google Doodles global marketing lead who idolized Selena while herself growing up in small-town Texas.

For an in-depth look at some of Selena's most prized possessions including iconic outfits, awards, and fan art, check out the new Selena exhibit on Google Arts & Culture, curated by The Selena Museum.
