In honor of the 28th anniversary of Selena’s debut solo album, Google showed its love for the Tejano superstar by replacing their logo with a sketch of Selena.

If you press the “play” button in the sketch, you can watch a short cartoon about the singer’s life.

Her self-titled album ‘Selena’ hit stored on October 17, 1989, launching her celebrated career.

Set to the hit “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” the doodle recreates Selena’s rise to stardom; it also includes nods to Selena’s favorite things, including pizza and white roses.

Selena’s family reportedly helped Google create the sketch, and the singer’s sister Suzette Quintanilla — who also played the drums for her sister — said her sister would be thrilled:

“What a great way to celebrate an icon. I think it will bring great joy to all her fans who follow her and look up to her as a role model,” Suzette said in an interview. “Selena would be so excited. It’s such an honor.”

As part of the celebration of her life and work, Google also put together an exclusive Selena collection for their online Arts and Culture Exhibit, which includes personal facts, photographs and fan art of the singer.
