He started his musical career at the age of 6 with his brothers Suzette and Abraham Quintanilla III, and recorded his first album at the age of 12. In the 1980s, she was criticized and rejected several times for performing by singing Tejano music, a genre only dominated by men. Her popularity grew after she won the Tejano Music Awards for best female vocalist in 1987. She later signed a contract with EMI a few years later. His fame continued to grow in the early 1990s, especially in Hispanic countries. Selena launched Entre a mi mundo in 1992 that reached number one in the top Mexican Regional Billboard, for eight consecutive months. One of his singles, “Como la flor” became his flagship song.

Her life was taken to the cinema in 1997 under the title of Selena, starring Jennifer Lopez, who gives life to the character of the singer. That same year, on May 25 in Corpus Christi, the Mirador de la flor opens, a place with a bronze statue in his honor.
