While waiting for the Olympics closing ceremony to start, I was browsing channels when I saw that a Spanish-language television channel was having a show dedicated to Mexican-American singer Selena, who was murdered in 1995.
If you don’t know who she is, she was a rising star in the 1990′s. Her arguably most famous song is “Dreaming of You”. Her life was cut short when her fanclub president murdered her after a dispute over money.
Disney star Selena Gomez was named after Selena, and even covered her song “Biddi Biddi Bom Bom”
