The petition has been growing every day with a current total of over 5,300 signatures.
“As beautiful and realistic as Madame Tussauds Hollywood wax figuers are, we want Madame Tussauds Hollywood to create the first Wax Figure in Selena’s memory! Selena is making history to date, and it would be an honor for Selena to receive a wax figure at the beautiful Madame Tussauds Hollywood,” cites the petition.
If the petition succeeds, it wouldn’t be the first time Selena fans have succeeded using the popular online petition site. In February, a Change.org petition was created to have MAC cosmetics honor Selena with a special collection. Six months later the cosmetics company announced the M•A•C Selena Quintanilla collection would come to stores in 2016.
Selena was murdered by her fan club president Yolanda Saldivar on March 31, 1995, after the star confronted Saldivar with embezzling money from Selena’s boutique and fan club.
The legacy of the “Queen of Tejano” lives on twenty years later thanks in part to her fans’ passionate efforts to keep her memory alive.
