This has been such a devastating holiday season for the Latino community. We lost yet another talented soul that brought melody to our lives with her wonderful music and upbeat personality. The very beautiful Jenni Rivera has passed away. Rivera was a Mexican-American singer, producer, reality television personality, entrepreneur and a hard working mother of five who still managed to sell over 15 million albums worldwide and become an international success. Rivera is known for her breathtaking voice, generosity, loyalty to her fans, and for being such a strong woman. Born on July 2, 1969 she died at age 43 on December 9, 2012 in a plane crash along with six other passengers. We send our deepest condolences to their families for their loss.
