selenaA rare video of Selena Quintanilla has been discovered in a donation to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.

The footage of The Queen of Tejano music was taken in April 1994 and found in a TV camera donated to the museum’s Spanish-language television project by Univision.

The Smithsonian says the production manager of San Antonio’s KWEX-TV put an unlabeled 3/4-inch tape in the camera to show what format the camera used.

When the museum digitized the video this summer, they found the Selena footage, which hadn’t been seen in more than 20 years.

The video shows an interview with Selena just before her performance at the “Texas Live” Music Festival.

Selena was killed almost a year later.
