Both the Quintanilla family and the team at Google are proud to share this animated ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom’ video which tells a short story of Selena as a little girl to Selena as the young women we all fell in love with on stage.
“This Google video Doodle comes on the Anniversary of our debut album that was released on Oct 17, 1989 with Capital EMI titled “Selena”. This Google will be shown in 15 counties for the next 24 hours only.” – Suzette Quintanilla on Facebook.
“As the daughter of a Mexican immigrant single mom living in a small (primarily white) town in rural Texas, I was one of the people Selena and her legacy profoundly influenced. My love of music started with her. One of my dearest childhood memories is of my mom and I belting Bidi Bidi Bom Bom and Techno Cumbia in the family van during our annual road trips to Mexico. I even sang Selena classics in talent shows across northeast Texas.
Aside from incredible dance moves and how to belt some serious notes, watching Selena taught me that being Latina was a powerful thing, and that with hard work and focus I could do whatever I set my mind to. Watching her showed me that this hybrid cultural identity of mine was a valuable gift I should embrace. Watching her made me proud of being Mexicana.” -Perla Campos, Google Doodles Global Marketing Lead

As a Latina from a small Texas town just like Selena and Campos, I’m so moved by this Google Doodle. This is such a treat to see a tech giant like Google celebrate our Tejana giant Selena.
Anything for Selenas – siempre.
