South Texas Tejano Queen, Selena, will be featured on a new postage stamp and she is one of many entertainers on new postage stamps coming out with a Latin favor.

Musical giants Tito Puente and Carmen Miranda are being honored on the set of five Forever Stamps that went on sale Wednesday. Also in addition to Selena, Celia Cruz and Carlos Gardel are honored on the stamps. A formal release ceremony for the stamps was held in Austin, Texas. Postal officials say the artists represent a wide range of Latin music styles and will be a lasting tribute to five extraordinary performers.
