Jennifer Lopez became a household name in 1997 when she played Selena, the pop star who died tragically two decades ago at 23. Now, Telemundo is showing a new look at the singer in never-before-seen home movies.
Telemundo will air a special tribute on Sunday called Siempre Selena, which will include personal stories from her family, including her husband, Chris Perez.
"The plane started bouncing around," Perez says in the special, recalling the day they met. "I got scared. Next thing I know she was holding my hand and that was the beginning of everything."
Selena was killed on March 31, 1995, when she went to confront Yolanda Saldivar, the woman who managed her clothing boutiques. Saldivar was suspected of embezzling money, and fired a gun during her meeting with Selena.
The Texas-born Tejano singer was on the verge of crossing over into English-language pop music at the time of her death with some calling her the "Mexican Madonna."
