A very affectionate and heart-warming biopic about a talented singer who was snatched from this world way too soon. From Selena's childhood, to her discovered talent, to her trials and triumphs, and to her skyrocketing music career. This movie shows how much Selena accomplished during her life on Earth, and how many other lives she touched. With the help of this excellent biopic, the legacy of Selena Quintanilla-Perez will continue and never be forgotten. RIP Selena, you are loved by many!
