The Recording Academy will honor Selena with a Life time Accomplishment Award for the duration of the 2021 Grammys following month.
Selena was outlined with a group of musicians, like Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, Speaking Heads, Lionel Hampton, Marilyn Horne and Salt-N-Pepa, who will receive a Distinctive Merit Award through the 63rd installment of the ceremony on Jan. 31.
Selena’s award is a Lifetime Accomplishment recognition. The beloved Queen of Tejano was killed in 1995 while she was on the cusp of an English crossover. She was 23 decades aged.
Her tunes and legacy has transcended generations, specially within just the Latino local community, who discovered representation in the promising young star. Selena, who won a Grammy for Very best Mexican-American album in 1993, carries on to be revered as a trailblazer for her dominance in the male-dominated Tejano industry and cherished for her infectious kindness and charisma.
The Grammys identified “Dreaming of You,” Selena’s crossover album, which was introduced posthumously, broke a then-record for woman singers when it marketed 175,000 copies on the initial day it was produced.
The Recording Academy defines Life time Achievement Award recipients as “performers who have manufactured exceptional contributions of artistic significance to the field of recording.” Black Sabbath, Julio Iglesias, Celia Cruz, Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond have been given the honor in latest yrs.
Additional particulars about the approaching award ceremony will be unveiled at a later date due to the coronavirus pandemic.
