Jenni Rivera was her name. She came from a family
of singers. She was born in California. She came
from humble beginings. She was a young woman,
that reached stardom, fame and fortune, beauty
she already had.
She was a self made star. She started to get known
in 1993. She reached fame, because of her talent.
her songs were known everywhere. A lot of women
could identify with her.
Jenni had a lot of tribulations in her life, just like a
lot of us do, but she over came them, with her head
high. She never forgot who she was, or where she
came from. She would always take her kids to the
place where they lived, when they were little.
On December the 9th of 2012, she was in a plane
in Mexico with her crew to appear in another Concert
the next day. She never made it. The plane exploded
in mid air. For her family - it was devastating, for her
fans - it was a shock.
Jenni was a hard working young woman, that loved
her kids, her family and of course her fans, her people,
La RAZA, as she called us. On that fateful day, they
had a meeting that they couldn't miss. God had called
them home. Goodbye Jenni, through your songs - you
will live forever...
