Selena Gets Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame


Late Tejano music legend Selena Quintanilla-Perez will be among the the 2017 honorees to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The famous sidewalk in Hollywood honors people in the entertainment industry who have made a lasting impact on their respective art forms. Selena definitely qualifies. I grew up in Texas and I remember a time when you couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing Selena. I also remember quite vividly the shock and pain caused by her tragic death. My high school shut down to the point to where they let us all go home. I have also made pilgrimage to her grave in Corpus Christi which has become like a shrine.

It’s a long overdue honor for someone who had an enormous impact on Latino music in general and Tejano music in particular during her short but illustrious career.
