Artiste Du Mois de July: Selena Quintanilla

Artist Of The Month
Of August 2013
Selena Quintanilla
I'm not her biggest fan, but I do enjoy some of her songs. Yet, I
do not know a lick on spanish, however, I still sing along to the songs ( but my accuracy is on point. Nevertheless, is it correct? Now that's a
different subject).
Selena Quintanilla talent was cut to short, we all know the story her president of her fan club murder her, for childish reason. 

I've became interested in  Selena Quintanilla when I saw the Biopic starring Jennifer Lopez, which by the way was a very good movie. 

Selena Quintanilla story starts similar to the Jackson 5 pre-stardom, yet her father seems more lenient, and kinder. 
A family band named Selena y Los Dinos, which also assess non family members. But
eventually, Selena went solo. Yet, the band stayed with her til her death.

This Mexican, Native American mix beauty brought the spotlight back to latin music, in the 90's, after being dub as Gloria Estefan by Jose Behar.
She was also known as The Mexican Madonna.

She won Best Musician - album 36th Grammy Awards, latin music hall Famer. She also been name one of the top latin singer of the 90's, and best selling latin artist of the decade. 

Her mixture Mexican ranchero, pop, German polka, country and Caribbean influence, is very creative. 
Her music is fun, exuberant, and fresh. Always make you happy. 
You get the sense she was a really loving, and caring person in real life. Her personality shines through her music. Amor Prohidido, is one of my favorite albums, a true dance album. 

El amor siempre
