Google Celebrates Tejano Music Icon Selena with Doodle Tribute
Google is known for its many doodles and today is no different. Just moments ago, Google released a new doodle on its homepage celebrating the life and career of Selena Quintanilla, the Queen of Tejano music.
Set to Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, the cartoon illustrated video features a young Selena singing and takes viewers on her quick rise to fame as she and her family perform from their home, to weddings and major stages worldwide:
Google is launching the Doodle on the anniversary of her first studio album, Selena, which debuted 28 years ago. In addition to the Doodle, Google will be rolling out a new exhibit for the late singer on its Arts & Culture website.
Released on October 17, 1989, Selena peaked at number seven on the U.S. Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart and outsold other female Tejano singers albums at the time of its release, and as a result increased the singer’s popularity.
