SAN ANTONIO – In the past 25 years, Chris Perez says he has grown a lot. “I’m constantly learning and I’m happy,” Perez, the widower of Queen of Tejano music Selena Quintanilla Perez, said in an interview with KSAT.

He said he’s amazed — but not surprised — how Selena’s legacy has grown 25 years later. It means so much and I want to stay on this ride with everybody.”Find more of our Selena coverage here.
