In honor of the 20th anniversary of Selena Quintanillas passing (March 31, 1995), the hit talk show The Real will be dedicating an entire segment of their show on Tuesday to the beloved Tejano singer.
The segment will feature an interview with Selenas sister Suzette Quintanilla about the iconic Latinas legacy, as well as a touching performance of Selenas hit single, I Could Fall in Love by host/singer Adrienne Bailon.
Ahead of Tuesdays episode, The Huffington Post has obtained an exclusive clip of Bailons performance (which you can watch in the video above!). Following the performance — the former Cheeta Girls first singing performance in six years — Bailon told Suzette what Selenas music meant to her as a young girl.
My first songs singing growing up were Selena, so for me to get back into it singing a song like this, means so much, she said. And thank you for giving me the honor of doing it You and your family have changed my life, so thank you.
Suzette called the performance beautiful, and took the opportunity to thank Selenas fans for their years of support, saying, Thank you so much for continuing her legacy, thinking about her, jamming to her still. And I just want to invite everybody, also, if yall are in Texas, come on — were having a huge festival in her honor — its called Fiesta de la Flor, its April 17th and 18th. All of yall are invited, she said.
