Selena Quintanilla is one of the most important Latin figures of all time: she was not only a singer but also an icon of popular culture that, today, has traveled the world. The artist continues to gain followers because her life and music are current with new productions such as “Selena: the series”, which appeared on Netflix.
In the midst of this furore for the unforgettable Selena, one of the most prized objects of her belongings is the last microphone she used before being murdered on March 31, 1995.
The sound system is more than special especially because it still maintains the red lipstick that the ” Queen of Tex-Mex ” wore.
His sister Suzette was in charge of cleaning it with a toothbrush but that day she forgot to do it.
WHAT HAPPENED TO SELENA QUINTANILLA’S MICROPHONE?
After 26 years, the lipstick still remains on the microphone, one of the assets of the Selena Quintanilla Museum in Corpus Christi, Texas, United States.
Her family decided that the mike should remain as it was the last time Selena used it: she used to press her lips together when singing with passion.
The microphone is so popular that, last year, it went viral on social media because of the object’s history.
WHEN WILL THE SELENA MUSEUM REOPEN?
The Selena Quintanilla Museum announced to the public that it will reopen to receive the singer’s followers from next August 28 and will have all the protocols for COVID-19
