Selena Quintanilla was a beloved musician whose impact could be felt on an international scale as one of the most influential Mexican-American entertainers of all time.
The singer was still a rising star when, at just 23 years old, she was murdered by Yolanda Saldívar, the president of Selena's official fan club.
Her death reverberated in the Hispanic community, and politician George W. Bush designated her birthday as a holiday in Texas, where the musician was born. Her death also led to conversations around the boundaries between fans and their idols.
