October 17, 1989 was the release day of Selena Quintanilla‘s first studio album Selena which became her first No.1 on the Billboard 200.

Their first Selena Quintanilla Google Doodle is an animated singing cartoon designed to celebrate the life & legacy of one of the greatest Latin musicians of all-time.

Watch the full Google Doodle below:


Creators of the Google Doodle say “Selena was always about transcending boundaries, and for someone who has such a powerful story to be featured on the homepage of Google—a search engine that connects people the way she connected people–that is such a beautiful thing. Featuring an immigrant woman should not be political, it should be celebrated.”

Selena will always be a beacon of inspiration and hope for the Latinx, immigrant, and bicultural communities around the globe.
