It’s been 48 hours since country singer Kacey Musgraves graced us with an incredible rendition of Selena Quintanilla’s “Como La Flor” and we’re still beaming with joy.
The fact that Musgraves performed that cover on the 24th anniversary of Selena’s concert in Houston is a testament to her fandom. There are so many celebs that claim to be fans of Selena, and then there are those who you can tell have been listening to the late Tejano singer all of their lives. Musgraves is one of those fans. She proved that singing this song, on that very night, was something she had been practicing for since she was a little girl.
But just because we loved the cover, does that mean her family liked it as well?
Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla, saw Musgraves’ performance and almost cried.
“Awww this makes me wanna shed a tear! Take me back. A Big Big Thank you to Kacey Musgraves for the love at the Houston Rodeo tonite with that Selena y Los Dinos Jam!” she said on Instagram.
Well, there you have it. Musgraves has the official seal of approval Suzette’s as well as that of the people.
We loved it too!
The community is giving her major props.
You just never know who is a fan of Selena.
Musgraves truly surprised most people with the fact that she’s a fan of Selena. That’s probably the most special thing about this performance.
This was a surprise to us all.
Here’s hoping Musgraves does more covers of Selena/ Spanish-language songs!
