Celebrities are paying tribute to Tejana songstress Selena Quintanilla on the 25th anniversary of her tragic death.

The “Dreaming of You” singer was fatally shot by Yolanda Saldivar, the president of her fan club, on March 31, 1995. She was 23.

On Tuesday, celebrities including Salma Hayek, Becky G and Ally Brooke honored the musician with social media posts.

”Remembering Latin legend Selena, who we lost 25 years ago. But who will always stay in our hearts ❤️💃 'Ayyy como me duele,’” Hayek capionted a video of Quintanilla rocking the stage.

Becky G also shared a video tribute, showing her singing Quintanilla’s songs at the Houston Rodeo earlier in March.

“As you can see by my excitement in this video, it was one of the biggest personal milestones in my career,” the Latina star wrote in a lengthy caption. “I couldn’t walk off that stage without showing love to the first woman who came before me and so many others, you. Singing your songs with my band and my fans was an experience that is so hard to put into words. It still brings tears to my eyes.”

“I was so overwhelmed,” she continued. “From the day I decided I was going to perform one of your legendary medleys, I emphasized to my team how important it was going to be to prepare this with so much love and detail. That night, we felt you there.”

25 years. Selena, you are still here. In all of us. You continue to accomplish so many things. Your music has stood the test of time over all of these years. You have been such an inspiration to so many including myself. This year I performed at the legendary Houston Rodeo. As you can see by my excitement in this video, it was one of the biggest personal milestones in my career. I couldn’t walk off that stage without showing love to the first woman who came before me and so many others, you. Singing your songs with my band and my fans was an experience that is so hard to put into words. It still brings tears to my eyes. I was so overwhelmed. From the day I decided I was going to perform one of your legendary medleys, I emphasized to my team how important it was going to be to prepare this with so much love and detail. That night, we felt you there with us. It was one for the books. 🤍 Sel, your heart would literally SHINE through in absolutely everything you did. The way you spoke about your music, fans, family, fashion and even FOOD, is why so many feel a little piece of you inside of us. Oh, and of course we can’t forget to mention that you were the OG SPANGLISH SPEAKING MUJER. You gave me POCHA POWER!! 🤍 We will continue to carry you with us everywhere we go. Selena. Forever. 💜 Video by: @emiliosanchez
