I recently attended a most wonderful event, the #SelenaFanGathering, held at Plaza de La Raza in Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles, CA. This event celebrated the life and music of icon Selena Quintanilla-Perez.

Selena was adored by fans all over the world, but her life was tragically cut short 22 years ago. Her memory and legacy continue to live on through events like the Selena Fan Gathering.

Created by Roger Gomez of LoveSelena.com, the celebration featured Selena music, impersonators, vendors, musical performances, and even a Selena fashion show.

It was such an awesome atmosphere and a great experience to be among fellow Selena fans πŸ™‚ She was an artist who touched the lives of many people, and her life and music left a positive impact on generations to come πŸ™‚
