The widower of the late Queen of Tejano music took to Facebook last Tuesday to share a sweet memory.

In his post, he wrote:

“Just heard this song again tonight from one of my favorite bands #Extreme...and I had a memory...late night in our Los Angeles hotel room @the Bel'age on the Sunset Strip...Selena was craaaaaashed out and I was still up in bed watching some super late night tv show (as usual, LOL!). My absolute FAVORITE band at the time was #EXTREME...and I hear the host say, "we'll be right back with Extreme!" What do you think I did? Damn right...I started waking her up (which was a super NO NO) and saying, "WAKE UP! Extreme is coming on and they're playing their new single!" She woke up, stayed up with me, and we JAMMED this song while we watched the LIVE performance for the first time together on tv. This is the exact same performance. YouTube, I LOVE you!”

He also shared a video of the group Extreme, along with the loving post.
