Jenni Rivera, que en Paz Descanse

By December 11, 2012

Follow me on:

Jenni Rivera, known in Spanish as la diva de la banda (the diva of banda) for her stellar performances in that style of regional Mexican music, will be remembered not only for her dozens of recorded songs but also for her turbulent life. The native Californian, who was a household name in Mexico but largely unknown among English speakers in her home country, was killed in a plane crash in northern Mexico on Sunday.

Rivera was born into a musically inclined family — four of her brothers make a living as musicians. She became a mother in high school (she was the grandmother of two when she died at the age of 43) and reached superstar status with her 2007 biographical album Mi Vida Loca (My Crazy Life).

You can learn more about Rivera on About.com from Latino music Guides Tijana Ilich (English) and Juan Mesa (Spanish).

Official sites devoted to the singer included her Facebook page (Spanish) and her Twitter feed (Spanish and Spanglish). In her final tweet she noted that her tablet battery was dying.
