She may be gone, but Jenni Rivera’s legacy lives on…
The late Mexican-American singer, who died in a plane crash nearly three years ago at the age of 43, is the subject of a new book coming out on Tuesday (October 27) via Atria Books.
Entitled Jenni Vive: Unforgettable, Baby! after one of her beloved songs (“Inolvidable”) and edited by the Jenni Rivera Estate, the book is a collection of never-before-seen photos and previously unpublished pages from La Diva de la Banda’s journal.
The book opens with a heartfelt letter from her mother, Rosa, which sets the tone for this moving tribute to the Mexican superstar’s life.
Rivera’s family members personally compiled some of her most treasured keepsakes — childhood pictures, handwritten notes to her children — as well as fan and celebrity remembrances to offer an intimate look at the idol.
The journal excerpts are meant to give insight into the inspirational figure behind the diva, who persevered in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
Rivera’s official memoir, Unbreakable, released in 2013, was a New York Times bestseller.
