Selena will be inducted into Houston Rodeo’s Star Trail of Fame

Selena will be honored Sunday in Houston, as the late Tejano singer will be inducted into the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s Star Trail Hall of Fame.

Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, who was fatally shot March 31, 1995, in Corpus Christi, Texas, performed at the rodeo a month earlier, KPRC reported. Her Feb. 26, 1995, concert at the rodeo set an all-time attendance record at the rodeo of any performer, the television station reported.

Selena will become the ninth person to be inducted with a plaque at the Star Trail of Fame at 1:30 p.m. local time Sunday, KTRK reported.

The singer performed at the rodeo for three consecutive years.

Sunday's induction coincides with RodeoHouston's Go Tejano Day, according to KTRK.
