Selena Quintanilla’s impact on Houston

by The 100 Companies

On Feb. 26, 1995, Selena Quintanilla, better known simply as Selena, took to the stage of the Astrodome for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. The record-breaking sold-out show was Selena’s third time performing at the venue. It would also be her last televised stage performance.

At the age of 23, the Tejano pop singer had already had a profound impact on the music industry. Selena had made history as the first female and youngest Tejano artist to win a Grammy for Best Mexican-American Album and had become one of the few female singers to break into the Tejano music scene.
