CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Twenty years after the death of iconic Tejano music star Selena, she’s going on tour.
Selena’s family is working with Acrovirt LLC to launch ‘Selena The One’ – a walking, talking, singing and dancing digital embodiment of the iconic star.
Acrovirt co-founder, Terry Kennedy, released this statement:
“Selena is a Latin American icon who was taken before her time. Acrovirt and the Quintanilla family are excited to announce that Selena will continue to share her creative talents with the world in a new innovative way.”
According to a Facebook post, ‘Selena the One’ will release new songs and videos, collaborate with hit artists and go on tour in 2018.
Online fans are having mixed reviews about Selena resurrected as a hologram – with some excited and others completely creeped out.
Acrovirt will run an Indiegogo campaign to support the launch of ‘Selena The One’ starting April 16.
The campaign aims to raise $500,000.
The 23-year-old singer was killed by her former employee in 1995.
