The late Tejana singer Selena Quintanilla Perez will be honored with Selena XXV concert in San Antonio on May 9th. Selena was shot to death on March 31, 1995 by her fan club President, Yolanda Saldivar. Selena was well known in the Latin community. At the time of her death, she was recording her English language crossover album that would have catapulted her to world wide acclaim. In death, she received that acclaim and as time has passed, her legacy has grown stronger. In the past decade, a MAC make up collection bearing her name has been created and sold, as well as an annual festival in her native Corpus Christi Festival and a clothing line with Forever 21.
Jennifer Lopez became a superstar after playing Selena in the 1997 movie Selena.
Appearing at Selena XXV will be Pitbull, Ally Brooke, formerly of Fifth Harmony, Selena's brother AB Quintanilla III, Becky G and more. Tickets are on sale now ranging from $40 to $200.
