It has been 21 years since Selena Quintanilla is no longer with us but her legacy is the strongest of all thanks to her dedicated and loving fans. Although her death anniversary and birthday already passed, the tribute continues at the 2nd annual Fiesta de la Flor Festival taking place May 6 to 7 in Texas. At Latin Times,  we are also remembering the irreplaceable Queen of Tejano by celebrating her album "Selena Live!," which marks its 23rd anniversary this week.

Selena launched five studio albums, namely "Selena" (1986), "Ven Conmigo" (1990), "Entra a Mi Mundo" (1992), "Amor Prohibido" (1994) and the English-language album "Dreaming of You," released posthumously in 1995.

She also dropped a live production in 1993, which garnered the singer a Grammy win for Best Mexican/American Album at the 36th annual Grammy Awards. The "Como La Flor" singer also made history by becoming the first Tejano artist to win in that category. In her acceptance speech during the pre-telecast event, Selena thanked her team at EMI Latin for having faith in her music, her band Los Dinos and her family members, especially brother A.B., who produced all her music. "It was great," she stated in an interview following her win. "Thinking back.. it's an experience I will never forget."

"Selena Live!," released by EMI Latin and produced by brother A.B. Quintanilla, was recorded during a free concert in front of 3,000 people at the Memorial Coliseum in Corpus Christi. The album dropped May 4, 1993 and became an instant succes with singles such as "No Debes Jugar," "La Llamada" and "Tu Robaste Mi Corazon." "Selena Live!" was certified gold (Latin type) by the Recording Industry Association of America in its first year, double platinum (Latin type) in 1995, and gold (standard) in 2002, after it was re-released as part of the Selena: 20 Years of Music collection. 

In honor of her music, this amazing album and throwback Thursday, check out Selena's speech at the 1994 Grammys.
