Some are honoring La Reina by blasting her timeless music.

While others acknowledge just how legendary she's become.

Selena is multi-generational.

She inspired many to feel proud of who they are.

And has paved the way for the entire Latino community.

She is, and will forever be, an icon.

You represented so much, especially for us Latinas who thought we'd never see one of us up there. ❤️ You'll always… https://t.co/BWj1wDN5l2

So today, put on some Selena, and dance away your sorrows by doing the washing machine. 🌹
