In an ironic twist, apparently the Queen of Tejano was not particularly renowned worldwide before her death. The singer who loved to design her own stage clothes, use a snug pants and a bustier as her trademark in every concert, thus, many people started to call her "the Mexican Madonna."

Born on April 16, 1971, in Lake Jackson, Texas, Selena Quintanilla Perez made her first public appearance at her father's Mexican restaurant at age 8. Aware of her daughter's singing talent, Abraham grouped all his children, bassist Abe III, drummer Suzette and Selena to continue the second generation of his former group Los Dinos. The group that played Tejano, a Mexican musical styles mixed with European polkas and waltzes, started to perform after keyboardist Ricky Vela and guitarist Roger Gracia joined in. When eventually the group's guitarist replaced by Chris Perez, Selena instantly fell in love with him and the couple got married on April 2, 1992.
