Mexican-American singer, Jenni Rivara, known for work within the banda and nortena music genres has passed away in a plan crash Saturday night.
Authorities have not officially confirmed her death yet, but her relatives here in the states told Telemundo that there were no survivors following Rivara’s plan crash that went down in rugged territory of Mexico’s northern Nuevo Leon state.
Rivera was born in the U.S. to a musical family, and established herself as a solo star in Mexico with her first album, Chacalosa (slang for “party girl”), which sold more than 1 million copies. Over the course of her career, she sold an estimated 15 million albums, almost all in regional Mexican musical styles like norteno and grupero, which had traditionally been dominated by male artists.
