Latest Doodle by Google showcases famous singer Selena Quintanilla

Share

Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, an American singer of Mexican descent, was remembered by her fans Tuesday as October 17 marked the day when her self-titled official debut album was released in 1989.

According to a 1995 New York Times report on Saldivar's conviction, the "jury here in Houston took less than two and a half hours to convict the defendant, Yolanda Saldivar, apparently rejecting the contention of her lawyers that the gun that killed Selena, who was 23, had gone off accidentally and that Ms. Saldivar had really meant to kill herself".

Born on April 16, 1971, in Lake Jackson, Texas, Selena became the lead singer of her family's band, Selena Y Los Dinos, at the age of 10.

The Google doodle on Selena is animated to the tune of her popular "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" song.

National rates also followed a similar pattern, with the number of teens involved in deadly crashes dropping almost 43 percent. The week is meant to highlight motor vehicle crashes as being the leading cause of death in teenagers in North Carolina.

Google has unveiled a 90-second animated Doodle of Quintanilla-who released music mononymously as Selena-singing her 1994 hit. Selena sang, her brother A.B. played bass and her sister Suzette was on drums. In 1993, she won the Grammy Award for her album Live, in the best Mexican-American album category.

She had six albums in total; the last, which was released after her death, became her first No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Quintanilla's first song was recorded when she was just 8 years old. My love of music started with her. The latter was also the former manager of Selena's Selena Etc. boutiques. "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.

As Billboard notes, it's the first time that Google has created a Doodle in Quintanilla's honor.

The Google team also considered pictures, GIFs and even games, but finally decided on the video because it felt the right medium to pay tribute to Quintanilla.

"Selena was always about transcending boundaries, and for someone who has such a powerful story to be featured on the homepage of Google-a search engine that connects people the way she connected people-that is such a lovely thing".
