Kacey Musgraves Stuns RodeoHouston Crowd With Selena’s ‘Como La Flor’
Kacey Musgraves is a powerhouse in the country music world, but a song she sang in Spanish has the internet buzzing. During her performance last night at RodeoHouston, Musgraves tried her hand at a popular song by Tejano star Selena Quintanilla-Perez. The singer's life was the subject of a blockbuster 1997 movie "Selena" and is widely seen as the launching pad for the acting career of Jennifer Lopez.
Houston's connection to the star, who was gunned down by her fan club president in 1995, runs deep. A performance at the famed Astrodome is featured prominently in the movie and that detail was not lost on the crowd at Houston's NRG Stadium.
This is the original performance from the Astrodome:
The song "Como La Flor" comes up several times during the movie, but a key moment is when she is singing at a massive outdoor concert and the stage begins to collapse. Watch that scene below:
Kudos, Kacey Musgraves! You really hit a high note with the crowd in Houston last night.
