Singer Jenni Rivera Dies In Airplane Crash

Ruby Montenegro, 15, missed school on Monday, Dec. 10, so she could spend the day mourning the death of Banda singer Jenni Rivera, who died the day before in an airplane crash in Monterrey, Mexico.

"She had that spark. She could make you laugh and cry, love or hate a man," said Montenegro while standing with other fans outside a Mexican regional music station in Burbank. People had gathered there since Sunday afternoon and brought candles, flowers, and photos to honor Rivera.

The singer, 43, was known as la "Diva de la Banda," and had great success with her songs that mixed love, heartbreak and getting back at those who did her wrong. Born in Long Beach, Rivera is part of a family that features other singers, primarily Lupillo Rivera, who was the first to gain major fame. But Rivera surpassed it, become known here in the U.S. and Mexico where she sold millions of records, had sold-out concerts, and a business empire that included a perfume, a clothing line, a food truck, a reality show on TV, a beauty salon and a mansion in Encino.

Along with her success also came heartache.

Rivera's personal life was full of scandals and disenchantment. She was married three times and had five kids, the first at the age of 15. Her first husband, Jose Trinidad Marin, is currently in jail serving a 30-year sentence for molesting their first daughter, Janney "Chiquis" Marin and Rivera's younger sister, Rosie.

Her second marriage to Juan Lopez lasted six years. In 2010, she married baseball player Esteban Loaiza, but they filed for divorce earlier this year.

She was once detained at a Mexico City airport with tens of thousands of dollars in cash, and she publicly apologized after her brother assaulted a drunken fan that verbally attacked her in 2011. But her resilience helped her connect with her fans like Eric Cabrera, who found her true and magnetic, someone he could identify with.

"In 1995 I was going through a lot personally and I found her to be a person with a lot of strength, who didn't care what people say, a person who speaks her minds. I see myself in her," Cabrera, 29, who got to meet his idol several times and attended innumerable concerts.

"I consider myself part of her life," he said. "Her music is going to keep going. I think she's bigger than Selena (another singer of regional Mexican music who died at an early age) was at her time. She projected herself in her songs because she lived that way."

For other fans like Guadalupe Alvarado, Rivera's death still seems unbelievable. "I feel it's a dream and I'm going to wake up," said the 25-year-old.

But authorities confirmed Rivera's death, along with six others, who were traveling with her en route to Toluca, Mexico, after giving a concert at that country's northern city of Monterrey.

Also aboard the plane were Rivera's publicist, Arturo Rivera, her makeup artist, Jacob Yebale, two friends, one named Mario Macias and another who was identified only as Gerardo, and the two pilots, said Mexico's Communications and Transportation Department in a statement. The National Transportation Safety Board also confirmed that there were no survivors.

Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop.
