The tragic death of Selena by Yolanda Saldívar, her friend and former manager, continues to be a painful memory for many. The singer was murdered when she was 23 years old on March 31, 1995, after being shot by Saldívar. She was sentenced to life in person with a possibility of parole after 30 years.

Despite the grief surrounding her death, the life and work of Selena Quintanilla continues to be remembered and celebrated. Two weeks after her death, then Texas governor, George W. Bush, declared April 16 as Selena Day in Texas, in honor of her legacy.

Since then, this day has become a day to commemorate her life and music around the world. The creation of this mural in Tijuana is only one example of the impact that Selena has had in popular culture.

Her music, style, and personality still inspires a lot of people and her legacy is still alive. Despite the fact that two decades have passed since her death, her legacy is still delighting others and her music is still being played around the world.
