With a voice as big and beautiful as her signature smile, Selena Quintanilla-Perez captured Tejano music audiences in the early 1990s with hits like "Amor Prohibido."
At the height of her fame, and just as she was creating her cross-over English language album "Dreaming of You," the 23-year-old was shot and killed March 31, 1995, by Yolanda Saldivar, the president of her fan club.
Tuesday will mark the 20th anniversary of Selena's death. Leila Cobo, executive director of content and programming for Latin music at Billboard, reflects on Selena's legacy.
As for how fans in Los Angeles can remember Selena, Roger Gomez of Orange County runs LoveSelena.com, and he is organizing the second annual Selena Fan Gathering. The event will be held at Plaza de la Raza in Lincoln Park, Los Angeles, on Saturday. Gomez will also travel to this year's Fiesta de la Flor in Corpus Christi, Texas.
