Fans celebrate and honor life of Selena on anniversary of death. (ABC 7 Amarillo- Jala Washington).

Selena's music is still alive and well, running through peoples' bodies making it nearly impossible not to move to the rhythm of the beat.

"She was kind, she was humble and she just had a great personality," Lip Syncing performer, Miguel Perez said.

Perez is the winner of the Selena "look-alike" contest today.

"I just want her to know that she's still loved today," Perez said. "And you know, we're here to celebrate her life."

But he's not the only one whose passion is driven by an admiration of everything Selena was.

"I've been singing her songs since I was little," Selena Fan, Teddi Rose Calahorra said. "She paved a way for women and Mexican music. And you don't see that in Tejano."

Calahorra said she sings because of Selena.

"My favorite Selena song would have to be, 'bidi bidi bom bom,'' Calahorra said. "You just see the love in the hearts that she touched all the way down to little girls that never got a chance to see her."

Though Selena's life came to a tragic end, it's clear she will never be forgotten.

“Viva Selena. She’ll live forever," Calahorra said.
