selenaIt’s about to be 20 years since the death of Selena Quintanilla! 20!!

Telemundo presents the special program “Siempre Selena,” dedicated to the singer twenty years after her death, this Sunday, March 29 at 6PM/5C.

As a tribute to her memory Telemundo has prepared a special show featuring exclusive footage from the singer’s career, including her early days and her stint hosting the network’s teen music show “Padrísimo” in the mid-1990s.

Audiences will also get an exclusive opportunity to relive the songs that made Selena famous and that she performed at her final, legendary concert at the Houston Astrodome on February 26, 1995, less than a month before her tragic death.

“Twenty years after her death, we might think we know everything about Selena, but that’s not true, as I discovered over the last few months as we prepared Telemundo’s tribute to this charismatic and versatile singer,” the program’s host, journalist Carmen Dominicci, remarked. “Selena Quintanilla was a young woman ahead of her time who revolutionized music and transformed the way the market views Hispanics in the United States. Two decades later, her legacy is still with us.”

Telemundo also has more exclusive content prepared, including interviews with the family of the Texan star; intimate conversations with her father, Abraham Quintanilla; the emotional declarations of one of her main confidants, her sister Susette and her brother AB; and the words of her widowed husband, Chris Pérez, who shares never-before-told stories of his marriage to Selena.

Other musical and acting celebrities who admired Selena also appear in the program, including Jennifer López, the Mexican group Moderatto, pop star Becky G, Dominican singer Kat DeLuna, and leading Hollywood actor Edward James Olmos.
