“Sooooooo the craziest thing just happened…I just met the Quintanilla family,” Abrina captioned an Instagram photo alongside Abraham and Suzette Quintanilla. “It was amazing to visit their work place and see them still doing amazing music! I will never forget the conversation I just had with Mr. Quintanilla, I’m in awe right now! #selenasfamily #latinroyalty #selenaylosdinos”
The California native, who released her debut EP My Playground last year, paid tribute to the Queen of Cumbia with an amazing cover of the hit song from Selena’s 1992 album Entre Mi Mundo.
“Selena was the first Mexican-American voice I looked up to ever since I was very young,” she added. “She spoke to young girls of my ethnicity and helped pave the way for all Latinas. I wanted to honor her by remaking one of her songs because I feel young girls today need to be exposed to more of her music which is timeless.”
