LINCOLN HEIGHTS — Several hundred people gathered in the Plaza De La Raza courtyard on Saturday afternoon to remember and honor Selena, the Queen of Tejano music.
The crowd at the Selena Fan Gathering cheered as performers from Southern California to Nebraska took to the stage to lip synch Selena songs. Vendors sold buttons, t-shirts, key chains, cups and many other souvenirs with images of Selena. The event, which also included a small gallery of fan produced art, ended with a Selena fashion show.
Selena Quintanilla-Pérez died more than 20 years ago after being shot by one of her employees. But as Saturday’s event showed, Selena remains a powerful force for many of her old and new fans.
