Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla, told People En Español why Selena’s legacy continues 25 years after her death. “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.”
