Gone, but not forgotten! A new album and tribute concert celebrating Mexican singer Jenni Rivera will be released on December 3rd.

According to Billboard, a CD and DVD will feature Rivera’s last live performance, a sold-out concert last December at the Arena Monterrey.  It was shortly after this performance that La Diva de la Banda and members of her entourage boarded a plane en route to Toluca. Shortly after take-off at 3:15am on Dec. 9, the plane nose-dived for more than 28,000 feet and crashed near Iturbide, Mexico. There were no survivors. 

“For our family, it’s a pleasure sharing this treasure with fans of our mother, daughter, and sister,” Rosie Rivera, Jenni’s sister, said in a statement. “This effort has brought us tears and made us proud and now it gives us much happiness to continue with the company that worked with Jenni in other large projects. In honor and tradition to what Jenni Rivera is, we remain loyal to those whom have been loyal to her.”
