Almost two decades after she became a household name starring as the late Selena Quintanilla in her biopic, Jennifer Lopez will honor the legendary singer at the 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards, airing live on Telemundo April 30.
“People like that don’t come along every day,” Lopez told Billboard late last month on the 20th anniversary of her passing. “There is never going to be another Selena. The grace with which she handled the business, the grace with which she handled her life, the humor. Her spirit of loving what she did. Her sense of family. That’s the tragedy of everything that !happened and why she left such an imprint — because she was gone way too soon.”
Yesterday would have been Selena’s 44th birthday, so this is definitely a great present to honor her legacy!
