    This new Selena mural by San Siguenza was installed on the exterior of the Food Store on Elvira Drive in the Molina neighborhood on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 in Corpus Christi, TX.

    A new mural of slain Tejano star Selena now graces a Texas neighborhood where she lived.

    The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports the mural unveiled Tuesday in Corpus Christi's Molina neighborhood has three watercolor images of the Grammy-winning singer who was shot in 1995. A former president of Selena's fan club is serving life in prison for killing her.

    The original mural had Selena's portrait and the words "Always in our Hearts." That work was done by some students and art teacher Dicky Valdez shortly after Selena's death. But the mural showed signs of wear by last year.

    Selena's relatives paid for the new mural, by New York artist San Singuenza.
