This came amid Selena's souring career and grammy-winning musical feats, but the singer also got to the point where she tried to navigate her career and marriage to band member Chris Perez.

Selena was a '90s sensation who made music lovers fall for her Spanish and American ballads and pop songs. Serena lost her life in 1995 after being fatally shot by the fired President of her fans' club.

Following her tragic passing, fans worldwide make out time to celebrate her well-lived but short life. The pandemic put a damper on the remembrance last year, but Netflix came up with a way to etch a tribute. 

Selena whose life was cut short at 23, started her career as a youngster, forming a band, Selena Y Los Dinos.
