There's no doubt that Selena Quintanilla continues to be an important figure in pop culture.
On March 31, 1995, Selena Quintanilla was tragically killed by her manager at the time, Yolanda Saldivar but her legacy continues to live through her music and the iconic bio-pic film, Selena.
In 1996 there was a casting for a film that would document her life and Jennifer Lopez beat out over 24,000 women who auditioned for the role of Selena Quintanilla.
The film, which was released 21 years ago today, will always help give Selena life beyond her tragic death.
From music to even socio-political frameworks, The Queen of Tejano music impacted the lives of many and remains a cultural icon.
