We can't get enough of the Selena Quintanilla covers and Jojo is the latest Hollywood star to pay tribute the late singer. 

It all went down while Jojo hosted an intimate performance in Selena's hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas and she surprised the audience by singing her hit "Dreaming of You."

And judging by the audience's response, they loved it! 

"I had the pleasure of seeing the Selena Statue, paying respect, and I'm just reminded of the amazing, amazing contribution that she made to music, and how her spirit is still with us today," the 25-year-old star told the crowd. "I just wanted to pay homage and do 'Dreaming of You' tonight. I hope I do it justice."

And you did, Jojo!

The "FAB." singer also shared a photo of herself on Instagram posing with the Queen of Tejano Music's statue and captioned the post with, "Dreaming of You."

Already a Grammy winner and owner of a clothing line and a boutique-salon, Selena was shot and killed by the founder of her first fan club on March 31, 1995. She was 23. The Texas-born singer was a pioneer for many artists as she seamlessly crossed over from the Spanish market and into the English market. Shortly after her death, the star's story was brought to life in the biopic Selena starring Jennifer Lopez.

Earlier this month Jojo released her third studio album titled Mad Love featuring tracks with Wiz Khalifa, Remy Ma, and Alessia Cara.
