10 some years removed from my Mexican/TexMex roots, I had lost touch of a lot of what was going on back home. When I flew to El Paso to visit with my ailing mom, one of the first things my sister asked me was if I had heard about "Selena"??? With a puzzled look on my face and having no idea who she was talking about I asked, "Selena who?" She continued to tell me how big of a Tejano singer Selena was and how everybody in the Hispanic community loved and adored her. Selena had just been shot the day before. This was 17 years ago, about a month before my mom passed away. So while in El Paso the news stands, television news stations were flooded with Selena's life and death. I had no choice but to learn all about her. I was at my mom's bedside when my sister broke the news to her and even my mom's eyebrows raised being shocked by the news. So long story short, I gradually became a fan of Selena, especially when the movie, "Selena" came out. J-Lo did an excellent job portraying Selena's personality and music. So whenever I listen to my Selena CD, I think of my mom and my Hispanic heritage. I decided to post this video of Selena singing one of my favorite song that hit the charts. It's a fun song to dance to and be silly with especially if you're in the house by yourself doing some cleaning or cooking up your Fiesta feast in the kitchen, young and old seem to enjoy this festive song. Turn the volume up and let's have some fun!!
It's Cinco de Mayo baby!! Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!!
