Google doodle honors Selena and her legacy
Anyone who visits the Google website on Tuesday will see a tribute to the 'Queen of Tejano' - Selena Quintanilla Perez.
Playing the doodle plays Selena's hit song, "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" and shows an animation of the singer's upbringing, life and success as a Tejano musician. You can watch the entire video here.
Selena's family approved the doodle. Sister Suzette wrote:
My family and I are honored and extremely excited to have worked with Google on this Doodle and exhibit launch, not only as a way to celebrate Selena’s life and the dreams she achieved, but as a tribute to Selena's fans around the globe. This project is just yet another testament to the power of Selena’s legacy, which is still going strong 22 years later. Selena has always transcended cultural boundaries and having this Doodle featuring a strong, Latina woman on the homepage of Google around the world is a perfect example that. We hope that everyone - both fans and people learning about Selena for the first time - enjoys this celebration and feels the positivity and hope Selena embodied and still continues to represent today.
In addition, Google organized a "Fotos y Recuerdos" exhibit, featuring fan artwork of the late singer. You can see it here.
