Jenni - Death Of A Super Star

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...

    Seems to me to be quite prevalent with entertainers. So many have died at a far too young age... a tragedy! However, a beautiful tribute! Hugs, Jack xox

    Wonderful tribute and sad at the same time. Sad for those left behind. Still comforting to know they are with God.

    this is a really nice tribute to her. Was she the one they made a movie about? I know there was a famous singer who died but I think her name was different from this one. Your love of her is apparent.

    This is quite the sentimental tribute to a wonderful singer/mother! I loved how you integrated her sense of reality, where she came from and who she really is, not what stardom can do to you! Thank you for introducing me to this star, I haven't heard of her or of this tragic event of her death! What a powerful poem you have written my friend, Great Work!!
