Sunday morning, at 3:15 AM, Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera, was reported missing along with other four passengers on a flight out of Monterrey, Mexico. The flight was headed for Toluca before the plane lost contact with radar sixty-one miles into the flight. Rivera had just finished a concert before boarding the plane; a testament to her hard-working spirit.
Rivera is popular for utilizing regional Mexican music, norteno and banda. Also, her reality show on the Telemundo cable channel, mun2, “I Love Jenni”, makes her one of NBCUniversal’s biggest bilingual television stars. We have only had a glimpse of all that Rivera still has to share with the world. Our hearts go out to her friends and family.
At 2:50 PM PT, a local television stated that the plane’s wreckage was discovered, but no word on whether or not there are survivors. Later at 3:25 PM PT, Mexican officials stated that the plane was found and that there are no survivors.
May her family find comfort in the outpouring of love that Jenni has always inspired.
