The best news coming at ya for this upcoming “dark winter”! Netflix has finally started spilling some of the beans, teasing us along the way of course, for one of the most anticipated biographical drama series of the year. Give the people what they want! And true to form, they’re doing just that.
The iconic Mexican-American pop star Selena has been given a new tribute, “Selena: The Series.” In the upcoming biographical drama, her family, the Quintanilla’s, helped develop and co-executive produce in order to share a more complete picture of Selena’s life. Part one of the two-part series is set to premiere December 4th, 2020 on Netflix.
So who’s the lucky lady playing the role for one of the most influential latin artists of all time? That would be The Walking Dead and Twilight actress, Christian Serratos. And the lucky young lady playing Selena as a child is no other than the 9 year old ‘musical prodigy’ Madison Taylor Baez.
Do you remember Selena’s song “Tu Robaste Mi Corazón“? It was recorded in 1993 on Selena’s Live album with ‘The King of Tejano Music’ the late, Emilio Navaira. The song has been recognized as the “Most Romantic and Best Duet” in the Tejano World. And guess what – if you’re a fan of those latin pop sounds there’s a new band in town! Hailing straight from San Antonio, the talented sons of Superstar Emilio, The Navaira brothers, have a major label deal with Warner Bro’s Nashville that have helped add some Tex-Mex spice into country music. These rock & roll boys along side 2 other gents, are known for getting the party started with their edgy pop rock country lyrics, beautiful melodies and slaying the night away on their guitars. The Last Bandoleros bring all the vibes as well as the Tequila!
Descansa en Paz our dear King and Queen, Emilio and Selena. You were and always will be a gift to all.
