The one-and-a-half-minute video shows Selena performing her hit song “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” from childhood to adulthood.

Billboard on Tuesday reported that the Doodle’s premiere that morning coincides with the release of Selena’s first studio album Selena on Oct. 17, 1989.

Selena – whose full name was Selena Quintanilla – would ultimately release five more albums, the last of which was released posthumously.

“[It’s the] perfect story,” Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla told Billboard while discussing the Doodle.

“It never crossed my mind, to be honest,” she added of having a Doodle for her sister. “It just speaks volumes to all the youth that are out there.”

“Selena was always about transcending boundaries, and for someone who has such a powerful story to be featured on the homepage of Google – a search engine that connects people the way she connected people – that is such a beautiful thing.”

Google’s project manager for the Doodle told Billboard that Selena’s achievements as a Mexican-American women inspired her.

“I grew up as the daughter of a Mexican immigrant single mom living in a small (primarily white) town outside of Fort Worth, Texas,” Perla Campos said.

“There were always two women who taught me I could do anything and be anything I set my mind to: My mom and Selena,” she added.

“Selena has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I’m so inspired by [Selena’s family].”

Selena helped popularize Latin music in the U.S., with her final studio album becoming her first No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

The 23-year-old singer was shot and killed in 1995 during a confrontation with the president of her fan club.

Yolanda Saldivar was eventually found guilty of Selena’s murder the same year and sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 30 years.
