Selena's Inspiring Life And Legacy Celebrated In Uplifting Google Doodle
19 October 2017, 01:03 | Kristopher Drake
Google honours murdered Tejano singer, Selena Quintanilla, with doodle
Perla Campos, global marketing lead for Google Doodles, said, in part: "Today we celebrate Selena Quintanilla: Mexican-American music & entertainment icon, fashion trendsetter, passionate entrepreneur, community philanthropist, and one of the people who taught me growing up that no matter who you are or where you come from, anything is possible". After performing at the Tejano Music Awards, Selena signed with EMI's label Capitol Records and began recording her first album which was released on October 17 of that year.
This little tribute has been a warm embrace for millions of fans who keep alive the musical legacy of the American star of Mexican descent, who not only became the voice of Latin music in the United States but also a businesswoman, model, actress and designer who passed away at the height of her professional career.
However, the Doodle itself is animated and plays "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom", one of the singer's popular songs featured on the 1994 album "Amor Prohibido".
"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. The Google team worked closely with the Quintanilla family to ensure the visuals and animations displayed the late singer style completely.
"What a great way to celebrate an icon". "Selena would be so excited". This is a flawless example that her memory is very much alive and her legacy is growing.
Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was born in Texas on April 16, 1971. Her father, a former musician himself, refurbished an old bus, which became their tour bus as they set out on the road in the 1980s.
Now You Can Order Food On Facebook Facebook Monday officially announced a new feature that allows its U.S. users to order food from local restaurants. Facebook decided it is time to roll it out across the U.S.to all users on iOS, Android and desktop.
This now belongs to the pages of history after winning the Best Mexican/American Albumin 1995 at the 37 Grammy Awards.
"I hope that people will look at this Google Doodle and realize that Selena is still relevant to us as Latinos", her sister says.
Selena is being celebrated by Google with a Doodle in honor of her legacy in the music industry.
Google often celebrates holidays, special occasions, and historical figures by creating "Doodles". It features Selena transforming from a young child to a young adult.
To accompany the Google Doodle, the corporation has also made an interactive Selena Museum, with notes on her history as well as photographs, fan art, and costumes pulled from The Selena Museum in Corpus Christi.
