Abraham Quintanilla discusses his daughter Selena’s success and the controversy that has come from critics who say he has capitalized on his daughter’s fame in part two of a three-part interview with Rudy Treviño, morning anchor at KIII-TV 3 News Corpus Christi and host of syndicated Tejano Gold Countdown.
In his first television interview since the release of his book, A Father’s Dream: My Family’s Journey in Music, Quintanilla shares excerpts from his memoir touching on the things he said are most important in his life, the stardom that followed the family as the popularity of Selena Y Los Dinos entered the height of success and the criticism of keeping Selena’s memory alive since her murder with recent projects.
At age 82, Quintanilla still produces music for his company and is always involved in the discovery of new artists. The message Quintanilla hopes will translate to the reader is that family is everything. He points to the successes of the Selena movie and the Netflix series.
