Selena Quintanilla honored with first-ever Google Doodle


To honor the late singer - who was murdered in 1995 at the age of 23 - Google commissioned an animated video with her song "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom".

The "Queen of Tejano music" is getting her own Google doodle, commemorating Selena, her first official debut album, released on October 17, 1989.

"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 flawless example [of] that", Suzette added.

According to Campos, the Quintanilla Doodle was already in the works and scheduled to go live in 2015, but being the Selena fan that she was, she wanted to postpone the release until the team "could make something really incredible".

In an interview with Google, Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla said that the video sends a strong message to fans. "I think it will bring great joy to all her fans who follow her and look up to her as a role model", in a statement given to Forbes.

Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was born in Texas on April 16, 1971. (We recognize Gomez, too, but not as a mononymous entity, okay?) It's never the wrong time to hear "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom", a smash and even more so with sweet biographical representations of Selena's life-the pizza, the lipstick mic, the bustier! The album went on to be nominated for Album of the Year at the Tejano Music Awards were Selena took home the trophies for both Female Entertainer of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year.

The Mexican American singer's music topped Billboard charts, and she won a Grammy for best Mexican American album for "Selena Live!" in 1994.

Google often celebrates cultural figures with a clever doodle on its search page. Her father taught her to sing in Spanish to maximize her reach and appeal throughout Latin America. The doodle, which is animated, tells the story of Selena's spectacular rise from her modest family band in South Texas to Grammy victor.

Accompanying the doodle is a special Selena exhibit from Google Arts & Culture, featuring works of art from the Selena museum.

Perla Campos, a Mexican-American and the global marketing lead for Google doodles, revealed in a blog post why celebrating Selena on Google's homepage for the first time means so much to her.
