Selena’s death made international headlines and her funeral drew more than 60,000 mourners to Corpus Christi, Texas. Twenty years later, her spirit and influence is still being felt.
Fans of Selena Quintanilla have the chance to listen to the sweet voice of the Tejana singer in a new recording.
Quintanilla’s family released “Oh No (I’ll Never Fall in Love Again),” a never-before-heard song recorded before her death 20 years ago.
“Recently we have had a lot of fans ask for a song by the name of ‘Oh No (I’ll Never Fall in Love Again)’ by Selena,” her father Abraham Quintanilla is heard saying before the track. “The song was never recorded professionally but we found a tape where they’re in rehearsal some place and they recorded the rehearsal.”
He added: The reason we never released it as one of her songs is because it’s not up to par as far as sound is concerned but years later my son A.B. recorded it with the Kumbia Kingz… we thought that the fans would enjoy it even though it’s not a professional recording.”
