Texas is preparing to honor the late Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla-Perez in May, 25 years after her tragic death.
According to Billboard, the concert event will take place on May 9th at the Alamodome in San Antonio. The concert, produced by Q Productions (the late singer’s family), features a lineup of Latin artists including Pitbull, Ruben Ramos, former Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke, A.B. Quintanilla III & Los Kumbia Allstarz and more.
“We are excited to bring this ultimate fan experience to honor and celebrate my sister, Selena,” Suzette Quintanilla, the singer’s sister as well as CEO and president of Q Productions, said in a statement to Billboard. “Over the past 25 years, her influence and relevance have only grown throughout generations.”
Quintanilla-Perez’s legacy has been celebrated in her home state of Texas for many years. The worldwide superstar was killed in 1995 in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas, by a woman who worked for her as the president of her fan club.
The concert to honor Selena’s legacy will be nearly 12 hours long, starting at noon and ending close to midnight.
