Christian Serratos Explains Why She Doesn't Sing in 'Selena' Series on Netflix

Selena: The Series just shot to number one on Netflix after being released on Friday (December 4) and the show’s star Christian Serratos is speaking out about why her singing voice is not featured in the series.

The 30-year-old actress, who is best known for her work on The Walking Dead, opened up to Variety about choosing not to sing.

Christian revealed that it was originally intended to have the actress on the series provide a singing voice, but she knew fans would want to hear Selena.

“I recorded quite a few songs, and I think it was always supposed to be the actress singing but… I always wanted it to be Selena because I was such a fan,” Christian said. “I think people were confused by that because I never wanted to be a pop star, but I always wanted to act in films where I got the opportunity to just sing. They were like, ‘Here’s your chance to show people you can sing.’ I was like, ‘But it’s not about me; it’s never been about me.’ I just want the fans to see their girl. I want them to see their girl. I don’t want to hear me. I want to hear Selena.”

Jennifer Lopez also didn’t do her own singing in the Selena movie.

Selena‘s husband recently spoke out to share his thoughts on the Netflix show.
