The true story of Selena Quintanilla-Perez, a Texas-born Tejano singer who rose from cult status to performing at the Astrodome, as well as having chart topping albums on the Latin music charts.
Jacob Vargas previously appeared in Get Shorty (1995) and Jennifer Lopez later starred in Out of Sight (1998), both films of which are adaptations of Elmore Leonard novels.

At the beginning Selena takes off her jacket during the Disco Medley and in the real concert she doesn't take it off until she starts singing in Spanish.
The producers wish to thank The Quintanilla Family
