Jenni Rivera
Jenni Rivera was a Mexican-American singer-songwriter, actress, television producer and entrepreneur known for her work within the banda and norteña music genres. Rivera performed a concert at Monterrey Arena on December 8, 2012, in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. When the show ended, she left the Arena along with her staff and departed from Monterrey International Airport. At approximately 3:20 a.m. a U.S. registered private Learjet 25 N345MC (manufactured in 1969) carrying two pilots and five passengers, including Rivera, lost contact with air traffic control near Iturbide, Nuevo León. The plane was en route to Toluca for an appearance by Rivera on “La Voz ... México”. All on board were presumed dead by Mexican authorities when the wreckage was found later that day with no apparent survivors. Reuters

Jenni Rivera left us a few months ago, but she is still remembered the world over. The late singer will be honored at the Grammy Museum on May 12, Mother's Day, with the opening of a new exhibit on the Mexican "diva"s life and career.

The exposition will feature costumes, never-seen-before photographs, letters, videos and awards that belonged to the singer. Under the title "Gran Señora," the exhibit will take visitors through the work of the norteña singer, who took the aspiring artist to the leading female entertainment in her genre.

"It's a great honor for me and my siblings Jacqie, Michael, Jenicka and Johnny to be able to share such sacred items of our mother with her fans," Janney "Chiquis" Riviera, Jenni's oldest daughter, said in a statement. "We owe them so much."

Rivera died in a plane crash in December 2012, along with her flying crew.

"Jenni Rivera was, without a doubt, the female leader of the regional Mexican genre and a true musical superstar," added Bob Santelli, executive director of the Grammy Museum.
