Selena was a singer and a dancer. She started singing at the age of three. Her career started at the age of 14 when she recorded her first album for a record company. She died March 31, 1995 at the age of 23. People in Texas (her birthplace) call her birthday Selena Day.
Selena Quintanilla was born April 16, 1971 in Lake Jackson, Texas and died March 31, 1995 in Corpus Christi, Texas.
Before Selena became famous she was singing in her family's restaurant, street corners, weddings, quinceaneras, and fairs. Her family's restaurant went bankrupt so she and her family moved to another part of Texas. Then her father got the band together called Selena y Los Dinos and they'd play at places like fairs and stuff.
Selena became famous in 1985, she became famous by her first record produced.
Selena is a singer, dancer, model, and designer. She would design clothes for her performances. She sings in English and Spanish. She is bilingual, at first she didn't know how to sing in Spanish , but she learned from her Mom and Dad. Her career ended when she died on March 31, 1995.
Her music is beautiful. Sometimes her music can be slow and smooth and sometimes it can be fast and wild. She is an amazing singer and dancer. Her clothing designs are unique and beautiful. Selena has a beautiful voice.
I chose this video because I like the song and it show it shows Selena throughout her year of being famous.
I like this picture because she is happy that she won a Grammy and in that same year, came out with her own clothing line.
