The Rivera family honored the memory of the "Diva of Banda" a year after her death in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo León, where Lupillo Rivera unexpectedly showed up.

Numerous bands and musicians that Jenni influenced attended the "Jenni Vive 2013" concert to pay homage to the singer, according to EFE.

Los Herederos de Nuevo León, La Original Banda El Limón, Tito El Bambino, Chuy Lizárraga and Larry Hernández sang their hits to Jenni's fans to honor her memory, accompanied with photographs, posters and various items with the lyrics of the Diva of Banda.

Lupillo Rivera, who had not accepted the invitation from Jenni's daughter, Chiquis Rivera, was nevertheless present along with his parents, and had a touching moment with his brothers, said People en Español.

Chiquis Rivera tried to invite Lupillo multiple times to the event, where Rosie, Juan and Pedro Rivera would be present, but Lupillo always refused.

The surprise arrival of Lupillo to the concert prompted Jenni's sons to greet him with hugs.

"I didn't want to get on the stage because it's a place of respect and honor. Yesterday, a woman put me in my place. She went to see me, even with this cold weather and the curves of the highway. Mom, I'm here for you," Lupillo said when he took the microphone on stage. 

Lupillo dedicated a song to his mother in the community of Iturbide, where Jenni's plane crashed, crying on stage as he sang "Amor Eterno" to his sister and asked those present for a minute of silence.
