Tuesday's Selena vigil marked the 20th anniversary of the iconic tejana's death
Last night at San Antonio's Selena Vigil, the singer's husband Chris Perez made a surprise appearance for the passionate crowd. Hosted by Univision's KWEX and tejano station KXTN 107.5, the two-hour long remembrance featured appearances from Perez, Oscar Gonzales of La Mafia, and Tejano singer Shelly Lares between singalongs to Selena's numerous hits. 

"On the 20th anniversary of the tragedy that happened in 1995, let's lift up Selena's legacy and inspire generations to come," Perez said.

Shelly Lares recalled "hitting it off" when she met Selena at Market Square when Lares was 10. "We had everything in common, not only musically, but we both had very strict fathers."
