Kickstarter Groove of the Day/Selena/”Bidi Bidi Bom Bom”

Twenty years ago today, the music world mourned the loss of Tejano pop singer Selena after she was tragically gunned down by the president of her fan club, Yolanda Salvidar. Even two decades later, reading this tragic story is still so heartbreaking because the gone-too-soon singer was ready to take over the world with her first English language album, ‘Dreaming of You.’ The album did get released two months after her death, shooting straight to the top of the charts, finally making Selena the mainstream pop star she was meant to be, but sadly, it was too late. 

Personally speaking, every time I write something about the dearly departed Selena, it’s hard not to choke up because the world truly lost a talented force to be reckoned with twenty years ago. Selena left behind an incredible legacy and an amazing music catalog that contains hits, “I Could Fall In Love,” “Dreaming Of You,” “La Carcacha,” and today’s kickstarter groove, “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, ” which is not only one of Selena’s signature songs, but it also shows just how dazzling she truly was. R.I.P. Selena, the music world still misses you…
