Beloved Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla was born to Mexican-American parents in Lake Jackson, Texas in 1971. her tragic shooting death by fan club founder Yolanda Saldivar, spawned a reaction within the Latino community that can be compared to the reactions to the deaths of Elvis Presley and John Lennon. An enormously popular singer in Latino communities across North America, her music crossed cultural boundaries to touch the lives of young and old alike. A flamboyant, sexy stage performer, sometimes hailed as the Latina Madonna, Selena was nonetheless considered a role model and icon. ~ Sandra Brennan
