A video of Tejana singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez has been found in a truck donated to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. 

The video, which shows Quintanilla in an interview in San Antonio, was lost for almost 20 years. After the star’s death in 1995, a production manager said he looked everywhere to find the video but was unable to locate it. In the video, a reporter at the “Texas Live” Music Festival interviewed Quintanilla about the Grammy she won.

“We’re just so happy what’s happened, and so many great things have been happening since we won the award,” she said. “It’s been great.” 

Selena lovers (most of Texas) will be happy to know that the Smithsonian digitized the footage and it can be found on  Youtube
