With the overwhelming success of the Mac x Selena makeup line, the huge reveal of her wax statue at the Madame Tussauds in Hollywood, and her upcoming star on the Hollywood walk of fame, it's obvious that Selena's memory deserves more ways for her memory and her talent to continue to shine. What better way could there be but for Funko to launch a Selena Pop series?
By the age of 23, Selena (Selena Quintanilla-Perez) had won a Grammy, every possible Tejano Music Award, and had landed on the coveted Billboard 200 Top Albums in the USA. She had her own successful line of clothing, had broken attendance records at the Astrodome 3 years in a row, and had numerous number 1 Latin songs in the country and sold millions of albums worldwide. Before her death in 1995, Selena was a superstar with Latinos in the US, Mexico, and all of Latin America. But Selena's cherished crossover dream happened 3 months after her death when her album "Dreaming of You" debuted at the top of the Billboard Top 200, the first time for a Latin star and the first time for an album mostly in another language to accomplish the feat.
In the 21 years since her death, Selena has been made into a major motion picture, a US postage stamp, and has been branded the Top Latin Artist of the 90's by Billboard. She continues to sell albums along with today's top Latin artists, and now, little girls and boys who weren't even alive before she passed, are continuing to play her music and cherish her legacy. The year event, Fiesta de la Flor in Corpus Christi, Texas, attracts over 50,000 Selena fans from all over the world.
Selena is more than a singer, she inspired a whole generation of people who were overlooked by mainstream to follow their dreams. She never turned her back on her fans and so her fans have never turned their back on her. We are proud of Selena because we are proud of ourselves, our families, our work ethic. Selena crossed barriers in life and continues to cross them in the afterlife.
With her iconic looks and her bubbly personality, Selena would be a wonderful addition to Funko's POP family. Selena's fans will guarantee that her POP line will be a success. They will sweep up each and every POP that has her likeness and her signature costumes.
Those of us who sign below humbly request that FUNKO create a POP series of our beloved Selena.
