By THOUSIF INC

Today marks 27 years since Mexican-American icon Selena Quintanilla was killed.

The singer took the world by storm with her Tejano music, with hits like "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" dominating the Billboard Latin music rankings.

Selena was fatally shot at just 23 years old by the president of her fan club.

Her family says a new album will be released this year featuring her digitally modified voice.

She began singing with her Mexican-American family's band Selena y Los Dinos at about 10.

As a teen, she began recording hit songs and winning awards, showcasing her duality and appealing to Mexicans and Americans.

Selena rose to prominence in the early 1990s with the release of Tejano albums with her family band.

Three of her albums reached a platinum-selling status, and all of them charted on Billboard's album rankings.

She was planning a switch to English pop around the time of her death.
