Quintanilla was killed in March 1995 by Yolanda Saldivar, who was sacked after it was discovered she had embezzled money from the 23-year-old singer's business.
If you were up late last night Googling that weird rash on your foot or reading conspiracy theories, you already know what we're about to tell you: Google Doodle is all about iconic Mexican-American pop singer Selena Quintanilla.
Selena's father listened to his daughter sing along Nat King Cole's "I'm in the Mood for Love" on guitar.
Now, with the final product released, Campos hopes to inspire millions around the world with the music and story of Selena - and thank the Tejano music trailblazer for all she's done.
On October 17, 2017, Google released a Doodle that celebrates the legacy of Selena.
Two years in the making, Selena's family collaborated closely with the Google team to ensure that the Doodle vision was appropriately fulfilled. Selena's death was sparked after her family suspected Saldívar of stealing money. MAC's collaboration with her was their best-selling collection of all time. Selena's fans can check out Quintanilla's auto, her very first Grammy award, her stage costumes, and even art was given to her by fans all day today.
"There were always two women who taught me I could do anything and be anything I set my mind to: my mom and Selena".
As well as the Doodle, Google has also created an interactive online art exhibition that showcases some of Quintanilla's possessions, including stage outfits, her red Porsche, and the Grammy Award she received in 1994 for best Mexican/American album.
Selena's success brought stardom and she was soon known as "the next Gloria Estefan" and "the Mexican Madonna", courted by Coca-Cola as a spokesperson.
