Jenni Rivera, Latin music star, dies in plane crash

Mexico Diva


Jenni Rivera has sold more than 15 million records of traditional music

Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera has died in a plane crash in northern Mexico, her father has confirmed.

Pedro Rivera, flanked by his two sons, told Mexican TV that all seven of those people on board the plane, including two pilots, had died.

Officials earlier said they had found wreckage believed to be that of the singer’s Learjet in Nuevo Leon state.

Rivera, born in California in 1969 to Mexican parents, sold more than 15m records of norteno and banda music.

She was a judge in the popular television programme La Voz, Mexico’s version of The Voice.

“Everyone was lost,” Mr Rivera told Telemundo television.

Civil aviation chief Alejandro Argudin told Mexican media that the plane had been “totally destroyed” and the wreckage scattered over a wide area.

It was not clear what caused the crash.

Rivera, known as the “diva de la banda”, had performed in the northern city of Monterrey on Saturday.

She was travelling to the city of Toluca, outside Mexico City, when the plane disappeared, officials said.

A spokesman for Nuevo Leon’s government said the plane had left Monterrey in the early hours of Sunday and aviation authorities lost contact with it about 10 minutes later.

It had been scheduled to arrive in Toluca about an hour later.

“She was the Diana Ross of Mexican music,” Gustavo Lopez from Universal Music Latin Entertainment, which includes Rivera’s music label, told the Los Angeles Times.

He said that she was the top-grossing female artist in Mexico, based on ticket sales.

Fans and fellow music stars expressed their grief at the news.

“This is sad. A bit in shock. Much peace to her family,” singer Ricky Martin wrote in Spanish on Twitter.

Rivera was believed to have been travelling with her publicist, lawyer and stylists.

She leaves five children and two grandchildren…
