"I Want To Be With You"
Lyrics: A.B. Quintanilla III (Selena's brother)
Album: Anthology, 1998

Selena! Beloved singer who helped make the bridge for Spanish music and Latino artists in the United States. You went mainstream at a time when Mexican-Americans were still confined to Spanish-only media. Thank you for paving the way for many other entertainers after you. You could have become so much bigger if you hadn't been killed almost 20 years ago on March 31, 1995.

Even if she's gone, we still love Selena. She was kind, uncorrupted, and talented. Listed to her upbeat and hopeful love song at YouTube here.
