Google Doodle commemorates Mexican-American singer Selena Quintanilla's first studio album

Google on Tuesday paid tribute to Selena Quintanilla, the late star known for hits like "Dreaming of You" and "I Could Fall in Love".

Quintanilla was killed in March 1995 by Yolanda Saldivar, who was sacked after it was discovered she had embezzled money from the 23-year-old singer's business.

She also inspired millions of people who share her Mexican-American background, including Perla Campos, Google's doodle marketing lead.

The queen of Tejano music is being honored on Google. "From that moment on, I contacted the family and they have been very close and positive partners to make every part of the project possible". The Doodle captures the infectious, charismatic energy in which Selena inspired and transferred to her fans. Google is propelling the Doodle on the commemoration of Quintanilla's first studio collection, "Selena", which appeared 28 years back.

Campos joined the Google Doodle team full-time two years ago, and soon began working on an illustration that did Selena justice.

She added that Selena proudly showcased her bicultural identity and has served as an inspiration to many Latinas, including Campos. She is among the most celebrated Mexican-American entertainers and also ranks among the most influential Latin artists of all-time.

Scott is also activating the National Guard to help with the event. "I hope he's doing this with good intentions". Almost 100 people rallied Monday to protest the school's decision to allow Spencer to speak.

"Selena was also much more than a talented musician".

Selena was always making music, even before anyone knew her signature name.

She told Billboard: "I took my new team lead aside and said, 'Look, I'm really passionate about this and know we could make something really wonderful".

"In addition to the Doodle, people will be able to explore memories of Selena in high resolution imagery through an exhibit on the Google Arts & Culture site", Smith continues.

Today's Google Doodle is the fantastic, the legend, the icon: Selena Quintanilla. As Campos explained: "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 handsome thing".
