A homage for singer Jenni Rivera, who died last December in an airplane accident, is in the works. The homage, to be held in the state of Nuevo León in Mexico, will also be in time for her first death first anniversary, informed authorities of the state's Tourist Development Corporation.
According to newspaper El Informador, Patricia Aguirre, the director of said corporation, informed Mexican media that the state of Nuevo Leon is preparing a homage for the Diva of Banda. Ms Aguirre added that they are in discussions with the family of the late Mexican singer and actress.
It's worth remembering that Jenni Rivera started her artistic career in that Mexican city, where she was always popular. It was also in that state where she lost her life on December 9, 2012, just after a concert in the Arena Monterrey. If an agreement between the singer's family and the state comes to fruition, the homage will be very special for the fans of "La Gran Señora."
On Tuesday, September 3, Pedro Rivera, father of the singer, already detailed that the family will still honor Jenni with a shoe line and sports clothing in her name, beyond the possible homage in Monterrey next December, informed Mexican newspaper El Universal.
"The homage to my daughter in Monterrey won't be done with the purpose of getting profits; neither her brothers nor me will receive a single dime, we do it because we love her and so that the people will still remember her", pointed out Mr Rivera in a press conference, quoted by the Mexican newspaper (personal translation).
For the moment, there have been no official statements on the details of the possible event; however, the only thing confirmed, so far, is that the homage will take place in the municipality of Iturbide, Nuevo León, where the singer lost her life in 2012.
