Script from the Selena Movie and Selena’s all original clothing

 

Do you know what Selena’s first number one song was? La Carcacha. And I loved it because that was exactly what I was driving. A big fat jalopy.

The Selena Museum is full of wonderful memories and accomplishments for Selena and her family.  I am only showing a few items so that you can go check it out for yourself. I am a fan and there were things in there that I was surprised and excited to see. 

At the very end of our tour, Selena’s father was working in his office. I heard people saying they wanted a photo. I didn’t want to disturb him for a photo. I can’t imagine the pain that he felt, my heart broke as a fan, and I am very grateful that they set up this museum for us to see and remember her. The museum is well loved and you can feel the energy there. As I am writing this I am teary just thinking about all the items I saw and how I remember the energy and excitement right before she crossed over to sing in english.

Both of my kids grew up listening to her Tejano music and it is still some of my favorites to listen to. She’s on my playlist with other greats such as Bob Marley, Dianna Ross, and of course Mariah.  She accomplished a lot in her short life, won and earned many awards and was set to do many great things. You can tell I’m a fan, right?

I did try to be kind when I excused myself to thank Mr.Quintanilla for putting this together. I really do appreciate it and I am humbled by their generosity.
