Oh, by the way, Selena and her band, Los Dinos, won a Grammy. It was, perhaps, about time: She had been named both top female vocalist and best female entertainer at the Tejano Music Awards for six years in a row. This February made it seven.
Selena was up for a second Grammy for Amor Prohibido, this past March but lost to Vikki Carr. No matter—it was a chance for more photos. Delighted just to be carrying her camera through the crowd, she wore a favorite purple-sequined outfit that, four weeks later, she would be buried in.
