New Kids on the Block are in the midst of their North American tour, and had a particularly special moment during their Corpus Christi, Texas, stop on Monday (May 13).

The group honored Selena Quintanilla in the late icon's hometown by dancing to her hit, "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom," not realizing that Selena's sister Suzette was in the front row with her entire family.   

Donnie Wahlberg took to Instagram to reflect on the touching moment with a photo of himself hugging Suzette. "When you play a concert in Corpus Christi Texas and you do a tribute to an angel — Selena — without even knowing that her wonderful sister Suzette @suzettesyld — an angel herself — is standing in the front row," he row. "Then you see her in the front row and time literally stops! I am so humbled by this moment. So blessed to have been a part of this moment. So overwhelmed to see the love and respect that this amazing family rightfully gets in their hometown! Much love and respect to A.B. and Suzette! #RIPSelena."

The legend died on March 31, 1995 at the age of 23. See Wahlberg's post below.
