Mexican-American singer and television star Jenni Rivera assumed dead in plane crash

Actress and singer Jenni Rivera

At approximately 3:15am on Sunday, a plane took off from Monterrey on its way to Toluca carrying Mexican-American singer and television star Jenni Rivera along with four other passengers and two pilots. The plane was in the air for about ten minutes before it lost contact with the air-traffic controllers. After Mexican authorities found the remains of the plane in the mountainous terrain in northeastern Mexico, the worst is assumed, as there are no survivors. Although a more-thorough inspection must still be completed before the deaths can be officially confirmed, Rivera and all the other passengers have passed away in this tragic crash.

Jenni Rivera was 43 years old and had five children. An extremely accomplished artist, she sold more than 15 million albums worldwide, 1.2 million of those in the U.S. While she is more recognized and famous in Mexico, she has fans all over the world, and was raised in Long Beach California by parents who were immigrants from Mexico. At the most recent Billboard Mexican Music Awards, Rivera won female artist of the year and band album of the year for “Joyas Prestadas: Banda”.

Rivera was the star of one of NBC Universal’s most popular bilingual television shows, “I Love Jenni”, and was on her way to a taping of the Mexican version of “The Voice” on which she was a judge when the plane went missing.

Following the news of the crash and her passing, there has been an outpouring of support and condolences from friend and fans, including Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan.

On Twitter, Gloria Estefan said “Praying for her and her family during this difficult and uncertain time.”

There is no indication yet to what caused the American-registered Learjet 25 to crash. Gerardo Ruiz-Esparza, Mexico’s transportation and communications minister, said Sunday “There is nothing recognizable, neither material nor human in the wreckage. This is what’s so regrettable, that it was so badly destroyed that there’s nothing recognizable.”
