Jennifer Lopez plans Selena tribute at Billboard Latin Music Awards

Jennifer Lopez will honor late Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez at the 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards, according to reports.

Telemundo first announced the live tribute on Thursday afternoon on Al Rojo Vivo, then confirmed via Twitter.

The Billboard Latin Music Awards also tweeted a confirmation.

“It’s an honor, a great honor to be able to, 20 years after her death, to do a tribute for Selena,” Lopez told Al Rojo Vivo. “She continues to be someone that inspires. It’s something that excites me very much. And I want to do something special, very special—just like she was—in this tribute.”

The “Queen of Tejano Music” was murdered in Corpus Christi, Texas, on March 31, 1995 by her fan club president. Lopez’s role in the 1997 biopic Selena, which covered the stars rise to fame and her death, is often considered her breakout role.

The Billboard Latin Music Awards will be broadcast live by Telemundo on April 30.
