Grammy-winning superstar Kacey Musgraves sang Tejano legend Selena Quintanilla’s “Como La Flor” on Tuesday night at the Houston Stock Show and Rodeo in a performance that made my heart burst and filled me with memories of The Queen of Tejano but also made me so proud! (Bachata singer Prince Royce also performed a Selena cover during his Tuesday performance.)
I never stop being surprised by how Selena continues to influence the younger generations of musical stars from various genres. Musgraves’ performance Tuesday was another example that La Reyna, Selena, lives on.
And a Texas legislator’s bill to have a day, April 16, devoted to Selena, is just another sign of Selena’s impact on Texans and beyond. Read the news here and see Musgraves’ performance in the video here.
