1209-jenni-rivera-gettyJenni Rivera died early this morning in Mexico after the plane she was flying on crashed shortly after takeoff, leaving no survivors. She was 43.

Rivera's father and brother confirmed her death on Telemundo.

Four other passengers and two pilots were also aboard the plane. It was headed from Monterrey to Toluca, after Rivera performed in Monterrey on Saturday night.

Mexico's transportation ministry says the plane lost contact with radar at 3:15 AM, approximately 61 miles from Monterrey.

What a sad story. According to the article she signed onto do a show with ABC which to me sounds like she was starting the cross over. I personally have never heard her music or know ho she is, but if she was named on a People's list she had to be someone Influential in the Latintino community. This story reminds me of Selena, another great star that America didn't get the pleasure of witnessing years of her career. RIP
