A star for Selenas!
Selena Quitanilla will get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Nov. 3, 22 years after her death.
The vocalist, who was shot and eliminated in 1995 by the president of her fan club, achieved many milestones in her 23 years of life.
Understood by her fans as the Queen of Tejano music, Selena entered the music scene with her household band, Selena y Los Dinos, in 1980, accompanied by her brother or sisters, A.B. and Suzette Quinantilla. Just two years later on, Selena began tape-recording expertly with EMI Latin, and won Female Vocalist of the Year at the 1986 Tejano Music Awards. Selena quickly ended up being a qualified star, and won the 1994 GRAMMY award for Best Mexican/American Album for Live!.
The vocalist continued to influence generations of fans for years after her death. Her crossover record, Imagining You, was launched posthumously in July 1995, and in 1997, Jennifer Lopez starred as Selena in a motion picture based upon her life and profession. Selena also became a style and charm icon, with her outfits showed in museum shows, and a MAC cosmetics collection inspired by the vocalist launched in 2015.
Selena’s sibling, Suzette, starlet Eva Longoria, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti are anticipated to participate in the Walk of Popularity Ceremony, and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Leron Gubler will host the occasion on Nov. 3 at 6:30 p.m. PT in front of Capitol Records in Hollywood.
