Devastating.

As we reported, a family of six died last week after their van was submerged by flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas. Only the driver survived.

In a Facebook post after the tragedy, Selena Quintanilla's father, Abraham Quintanilla, revealed the six lives lost were cousins of his.

He penned:

"The family that drowned in Houston Texas were related to me. Manuel Saldivar and his wife velia and 4 of their grandkids left their flooded house to go somewhere where there was safety, When they cross a bridge a wave of water swept the van and push them in to the bayou the driver was saved but manuel and his wife and 4 grandkids drowned.. manuels mother Carolina Was my father's 1st cousin. My condolences to their family // 2nd Corinthians Chapter 1 verse 3 says praised be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ the father of Tender Mercies and the God of all comfort."

Such a tragedy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by Harvey and continue to deal with the aftermath.

Selena's Father Sues Her Widower To Stop Production On TV Series!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersBusiness Blitz

Like most relatives of late legends, Selena's family isn't quite seeing eye to eye on how to properly monetize the icon's legacy.

Just last month, it was announced the songstress' husband Chris Perez would be producing a TV show about his late wife based on his book To Selena With Love.

But the rest of the Quintanilla brood isn't too happy about the upcoming series — and is taking legal action against Perez for contract violation!

Abraham Quintanilla, father of The Queen of Tejano, is suing his son-in-law — along with his production company Endemol Latino — in attempt to stop the series from seeing TV screens.

According to the lawsuit, Perez and his production company violated a contract when developing the series, stating that the property rights of Selena belonged to her family.

The lawsuit also claims that Perez's book was unauthorized, which means any adaptations of the work are strictly forbidden!

Hopefully, the two parties can reach some sort of settlement, because we know countless fans would LOVE to see more memories of the late music icon come to life on the small screen.

Until then, we'll have to keep watching Jennifer Lopez's flawless big screen reincarnation…

The Queen of Tejano lives on!

In 1995, Selena Quintanilla was fatally shot by the president of her fan club.

Two decades after that shocking tragedy, her father Abraham Quintanilla has released a newly unearthed recording — featuring vocals from Selena herself!

The song, titled Oh No (I'll Never Fall in Love Again) was shared on Selena Q Radio, the online radio station of Quintanilla's production company.

During the show, Quintanilla reveals that despite the huge fan request, he was hesitant to release the track because it was never professionally recorded, explaining:

"The reason we never released it as one of her songs is because it's not up to par as far as sound is concerned. But years later my son A.B. recorded it with the Kumbia Kings. We thought that the fans would enjoy it even though it's not a professional recording."

Professionally recorded or not — we love it! Take a listen for yourself (below) and see what you think (the music starts around 0:45)!

New Selena Quintanilla Album Coming!

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.

Sorry, our Selenita, you're going to have to take a backseat for a moment!

The original, late, but still very much GREAT Selena Quintanilla apparently had over 50 unreleased songs recorded before her tragic passing, and according to her father, Abraham, ten of those will be re-mastered on a new album, set to drop early next year!

He explains:

"I own 5 Selena tape masters from pre-EMI times. There's a total of 50 songs. We picked 10 of those songs and we're currently working on refreshing the music. We want to rejuvenate their sound, bring them up-to-date."

Even more exciting yet, the remaining 40 tracks will also eventually be seeing the light of day, as well!

YES! YES! YES!

We normally would be a little hesitant, as this material is from the singer's teenage years and, as with most post-mortem releases, other people will be handling the production without her input, but if her family approves and think that these songs need to be heard by the public - then go for it!

We want to hear!

What do U think?? Should Selena's unheard music be released?
