google+selena+quintanillaSelena Quintanilla is getting a special digital tribute in her honor. The “Queen of Tejano music” is getting her own Google doodle, commemorating Selena, her first official debut album, released on October 17, 1989.

The idea of a Selena doodle was first submitted two years ago. “This is someone I looked up to my entire my life and I wanted to create something special,” states Perla Campos, Global Marketing Lead for Google Doodles, who considered the singer a role model who helped her embrace her cultural identity while growing up.

The Selena doodle is animated to the tune of the popular “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.” That song, says Campos, “embodies her power and how talented an artist she was.”

The Google team worked closely with the Quintanilla family to make the doodle, but also to launch a special Selena exclusive content collection within the Google’s online Arts & Culture Exhibit.

We love the small details in the video doodle that depict Selena perfectly.
