Selena could be making a comeback 20 years after her death.

Her family is working with a graphics company to make a hologram version of the singer, according to Billboard. The new project is titled "Selena the One."

Billboard talked to the late singer's sister, Suzette Quintanilla, who confirmed the project. She describes it as a "walking, talking, singing and dancing digital embodiment" of the Mexican American icon.

"By no means is this something that's creepy or weird," Suzette told Billboard during a phone interview. "We think it's something amazing. A lot of the new fans that did not get to experience what Selena was about hopefully will be able to get a sense of her with this new technology that's going to be coming out."

Selena's sister didn't give details about any new songs, but she did say, "It's about being able to see Selena sing again, for example, doing the 'Dreaming of You' music video and it's her."

According to Billboard, the Quintanilla family has been sending a Nevada-based company behind the project, Acrovirt LLC, lots of photos, video footage and materials of Selena so the company can properly represent her. Suzette Quintanilla said the goal is to complete the project by 2017 or 2018.

The "Selena the One" announcement comes a week after the 20th anniversary of Selena's death and before the Fiesta de la Flor festival, which is held each year in her honor in Corpus Christi, Texas.
