Google has dedicated its Google-Doodle of the day to the Tejano music icon, Selena Quintanilla, much to the delight of her worldwide fan base. The team at Google worked alongside Selena's family to create an exclusive content collection, celebrating Selena's life and music career and included the Google-Doodle which was unveiled today, 28 years to the day of the release of Selena, her solo debut album.
The collection includes heartwarming images of fan letters and fan art dedicated to the late singer as well as a short bio about her early life and rise to stardom. The Selena Museum in Corpus Christi, Texas, which is operated by The Quintanilla family, helped collaborate on this Google project that took two years to complete and offers a truly authentic insight into the life and career of one of the most celebrated Mexican-American artists in history.
Selena's Google-Doodle is set to the tune of "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" as an animated story of the singer's rise to fame plays. Tributes like this prove that the late artist's legacy is still very much alive, even 22 years after her untimely death at the age of 23.
