More trivia for Selena

Question: Pete Astudillo is in the first scene when Selena was at the Houston Astrodome on February 26, 1995. He left the Dinos in 1993. I watched the original video of that same concert and another guy was on stage her, not Pete Astudillo. Was this a mistake or did they just keep it uniform for the movie?

Answer: Pete wasn't in that concert but since Freddy wasn't available for the movie... Pete filled in for him.

Answer: Pete left in 1993 to pursue his music career. Selena then hired Freddy who was part of the Barrio Boyz. Selena sang a song with them called Donde Quiera Que Estes. Thus when Pete left, Freddy became a part of the Dinos along with Don who also appears in the film next to Pete Astudillo.
