This year would have been Selena Quintanilla-50th Pérez’s birthday. Instead, she is forever frozen in time as the vivacious, sexy, and talented Queen of Tejano Music she was when she died on March 31, 1995, at the age of 23.
Every show features Selena’s angelic vocals. After all, they were frequently given precedence in the Netflix series over the titular character. You’d learn a lot about her brother A.B. (Gabriel Chavarriaevolution )’s as a songwriter and her sister Suzette’s (Noemi Gonzalezviews )’s if you watched all nine episodes of Selena: The Series Part 1, just not much about Selena’s (Christian Serratos) own. Selena: The Series is based on the life of legendary Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez. Selena’s life was about integrating her American identity and Mexican cultural heritage, as she was born into a Mexican-American family and raised in Texas.
She had to study Spanish as a child in order to sing Tejano music, the wildly successful genre that dominated Texas radio stations at the time. Part 1 of Selena: The Series chronicles her family’s tremendous efforts and heartbreaking sacrifices in order to enter into the industry. The singer’s greatest challenge, however, was misogyny.
