    ORLANDO, Fla. - Florida fans of Selena Quintanilla have let their longstanding love for the Queen of Tejano be truly felt!

    Madame Tussauds Orlando is excited to announce the iconic singer's wax figure will be making a limited-time appearance at the popular attraction as part of a six-week #LoveSelenaOrlando celebration. From February 13 to April 8, fans can come face-to-face with Selena and share their love, memories and messages by leaving a letter for the singer.

    "Our family is excited that Selena fans in Orlando will have a chance to see this beautiful wax figure in person. We are thrilled to continue to work with Madame Tussauds to celebrate her legacy with fans from all around the world”, said Suzette Quintanilla.

    Madame Tussauds Orlando is giving Selena fans the chance to attend the official figure welcoming of the #LoveSelenaOrlando celebration by sharing clips of them singing their favorite Selena song to Instagram with the hashtag #LoveSelenaOrlando. Fans who visit the attraction, will also have the opportunity to leave messages for Selena which will form part of the experience and be passed on to the Quintanilla family at the end of the figure’s limited-time appearance.

    The Queen of Cumbia catapulted to global adoration in the late 1980s and early 90s and is the only Latin female artist who holds the RIAA certification for 75 Platinum career singles and streams. To date Selena has sold 70 million albums worldwide and continues to win awards 22 years later, winning Female Artist of the Year at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in 2017. Her top hits include Dreaming of You, Amor Prohibido and Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, just to name a few.

    Madame Tussauds worked in partnership with the Quintanilla family and The Selena Museum to replicate her pose, expressions, make-up and recognizable styling celebrating her iconic concert performance held at the Memorial Coliseum in Corpus Christi, TX on February 7, 1993, for the album “Selena Live!” which won the GRAMMY Award for Best Mexican/American Album in 1994.
