Beloved deceased singer Selena isn't being resurrected as a hologram, as we'd hoped, but fans can hear her sing again - and she's doing it with another popular Selena: the teen star Selena Gomez.
The chart-topping Latin songstress died tragically in 1995 when Gomez was a mere toddler. Now 19, Gomez has recorded a "duet" with the late Selena on the tribute album "Enamorada De Ti," and Selena's brother A.B. is singing Gomez's praises.
"She did an amazing job," he told E! of Gomez's work on the record, adding that Gomez "was named after my sister. That's pretty awesome."
She did such a great job that A.B. is hoping to work with the young actress/singer again soon, and it sounds like Gomez would be up for it: She told Just Jared Jr. that she had a great time working on the duet.
"I was completely honored when they asked me to be on the tribute CD, and when I went into the studio to record, they actually had her vocals... so I felt like she was singing right next to me," Gomez recalled. "It gave me chills! It was incredible."
