In March it will be 25 years since the Texan singer Selena Quintanilla passed away, but her music has prevailed on the popularity charts thanks to the hard work her family has done to keep her memory alive.
To that end, the Quintanilla family will pay tribute to their daughter and sister once again this year with a great concert that will be called Selena XXV-Twenty-Five Years, as announced by the family this week. The event will take place on May 9 at the legendary Alamodome Arena in San Antonio, Texas.
"We are excited to bring this great experience to fans to honor and celebrate my sister Selena," said Suzette Quintanilla, president of Q Productions, in a statement. “In the past 25 years, its influence and relevance have only grown through the generations. Through our father Abraham Quintanilla, we were taught to persevere in adversity and work hard to achieve our dreams. Those core values, coupled with great talent and the ability to connect with people, has helped sustain Selena's legacy and is what makes her impactful and an important role model, 25 years later.”
Among the artists that will perform at the concert are Pitbull, Los Tucanes de Tijuana, Becky G and of course the brother of singer AB Quintanilla III & Los Kumbia Allstarz, among other groups and singers.
On her social networks, Suzette Quintanilla has described this event as an “epic celebration” of her sister's legacy and life. He also made it clear that Los Dinos, the band with which Selena sang, will not appear.
"My family and I are excited to celebrate this special moment in his 25-year legacy in San Antonio, Texas, with his fans around the world," she said of the event, which she says will be one to remember.
