GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Selena Win Best-Mexican American Album For 'Live' At The 1994 GRAMMYs
Selena had already won the hearts of millions and was well on her way to even greater stardom when she won her first GRAMMY at just 23 years old.
In the latest edition of GRAMMY Rewind, we go back to the 36th GRAMMY Awards in 1994 when the Tejana queen, wearing a white crystal beaded gown, accepted the GRAMMY Award for Best Mexican-American Album, only one year before her tragic death on March 31, 1995.
Live, Selena's only live album, which was recorded in her Corpus Christi, Texas hometown, radiates the singer's love of meshing different Mexican musical genres and shows her vibrant onstage energy, not to mention how much her fans loved her. Even 25 years after her death, Selena's fandom continues to grow—in and out of Latin America.
The GRAMMY win, immortalized in the 1997 biopic featuring Jennifer Lopez, only further cemented the talent the Texan singer/songwriter embodied and her role as one of the greatest Mexican-American voices in U.S. pop culture. Watch the video above to relive the iconic moment 26 years later.
