Any fans of Selena Quintanilla?

Today is the 21st anniversary of her death and I can only imagine the success she would have if she was still alive.
It is a shame the world lost such a talented singer.



Some quick info from Wikipedia for those who don't know who she is

Selena Quintanilla was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer. Called the Queen of Tejano music, her contributions to music and fashion made her one of the most celebrated Mexican-American entertainers of the late 20th century. Billboard magazine named her the "top Latin artist of the '90s", the "best selling Latin artist of the decade". She was called the "Tejano Madonna" for her clothing choices, by media outlets. She also ranks among the most influential Latin artists of all-time and is credited for catapulting a music genre into mainstream.

Can't call myself a fan; I only listen to tejano incidentally and prefer a classic conjunto sound but she was pretty amazing. Like so many other gringos I only became familiar with her posthumously.
