Fans are loving the new series on Netflix

The Grammy award-winning singer was tragically shot and killed just two weeks before her 24th birthday in March 1995. The crime was committed by Yolanda Saldívar, who was a former close friend and employee of the star.

The official synopsis for the new series reads: "Before she became the Queen of Tejano Music, Selena Quintanilla was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice. Selena: The Series explores her journey from singing small gigs to becoming the most successful female Latin artist of all time — and the years of hard work and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together."
