Selena will once again be featured on the cover of People En Español 25 years after death as the magazine released it’s April issue this week.
The cover features Selena dressed in yellow and black with that signature smile that millions of fans have loved for many years.
Her father explained to People En Español why Selena has become a bicultural icon worldwide. “The music has a lot to do it with it,” he said. “The music of Selena Y Los Dinos connected very, very well with people and different cultures.”
Suzette Quintanilla added that Selena’s legacy expands to generations of fans. “I think where we’re at now with Selena’s legacy is there’s a whole new generation that people that were fans of our music has now passed that on to their children and their children are passing it on to a newer generation. It’s a whole new generation finding out who Selena was, not only as an artist but as a person.”
Selena’s legacy over the past 25 years will be celebrated with the Selena XXV concert at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on May 9, a biographical series on Netflix, another makeup collection with MAC Cosmetics and even new album featuring songs recorded by Selena when she was a teenager.
The April issue of People En Español will be available at newsstands on March 13 and currently available online at PeopleEnEspanol.com.
