Selena Quintanilla was an American/Spanish singer/songwriter. She was born on April 16, 1971 in Lake Jackson, Texas.

In 1992, when Quintanilla released her single “Entre Mi Mundo,” it peaked at number one on the US Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart for 8 months. That was said to be Quintanilla’s breakthrough.

Quintanilla lived a very short life. She died on March 31, 1995 when she was only 23 years old, as a result of a gun shot wound.

Yolanda Saldivar was the manager of Quintanilla’s boutique in 1994. She was later appointed as Quintanilla’s agent. In 1995, fans began calling Quintanilla Jr., Selena’s father, to report having paid for a membership but receiving nothing in return. The Quintanilla’s then discovered that Saldivar embezzled more than $30,000 from them.

As a result, Quintanilla Jr. banned Saldivar from having any contact with the family, especially Selena.

Later on, Quintanilla met up with Saldivar in her hotel room and Saldivar grabbed a gun a pointed it at Selena. When she tried to escape, Saldivar shot Quintanilla on her right low shoulder. When she was found in the hallway of the hotel, she confessed it was Saldivar who had shot her.

Many people were impacted by Quintanilla’s death. They compared the loss of her to the loss of John Lennon and Elvis Presley.

On November 3, 2017, Selena Quintanilla received her star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. On her behalf, Suzette Quintanilla, her sister, accepted the star.
