LOS ANGELES – Late Tejano music icon Selena was immortalized in Hollywood with a Madame Tussauds Wax Museum statue.

More than 10,000 people signed a Change.org. petition for the museum to create a sculpture honoring the Grammy-award winning singer.

Selena's outfit recreated a stage look from her concert that was held at the Memorial Coliseum in Corpus Christi on Feb. 7, 1993.

Family and fans gathered for the unveiling Tuesday, which also lined up with the 21st anniversary of the release of her album "Dreaming of You."

The museum worked with Quintanilla family, from her outfit to her hair and makeup, to make sure the wax figure reflected the true Selena. The statue is valued at $350,000.


Selena was shot to death on March 31, 1995 by Yolanda Saldivar, a woman who founded Selena's fan club in San Antonio and managed Selena's clothing boutique.
