New Google Doodle Celebrates Iconic Singer Selena Quintanilla

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

Google is celebrating the legacy of music star Selena Quintanilla in the latest Google Doodle. 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 doodle documents the singer's journey from childhood to when she finally gained stardom and is animated to the tune of 'Bidi Bidi Bom Bom', her 1994 song from her Amor Prohibido album.

In an interview with Google, Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla said that the video sends a strong message to fans. "Selena would be so excited".

Selena Quintanilla, originally from Texas, knew she was bound to be a performer from an early age. Thank you for teaching her that she could dream big and make it. Her father, a former musician himself, refurbished an old bus, which became their tour bus as they set out on the road in the 1980s. 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.

In 1995, while working on her first English album, her life was tragically cut short when she was murdered by Yolanda Saldivar.

Taj was built by traitors, says BJP's Sangeet Som
Earlier in the day, Som said that the iconic Taj Mahal was built by traitors and hence, can not be included in the Indian history. Som has earlier too been in news for making controversial statements.

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. A rapidly growing fan base got her the Tejano Music award for "Female Vocalist of the Year", after which there was no looking back. That was the date in 1989 when her first studio album "Selena" debuted.

Google often celebrates holidays, special occasions, and historical figures by creating "Doodles".

Perla Campos, Global Marketing Lead for Google Doodles, tells Billboard that the singer helped her embrace her identity and served as a role model. "She'll never be forgotten". According to Univision Entertainment, Selena along with her brother A.B. Quintanilla and her husband Chris Perez used to sing "itty bitty bubbles".

The 90-second home-page animation will be viewable in the United States and in more than a dozen Latin American nations, and launches alongside the new Selena collection as part of Google's Arts and Culture Exhibit.
