ABOUT OUR HONOREE "The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to honor the legendary Jenni Rivera with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," stated Ana Martinez, Walk of Fame Producer. “Jenni’s star represents not only her incredible achievements as an artist, but also her resilience, courage, and unwavering spirit that continue to inspire her fans around the world,” added Martinez. Known worldwide as “La Diva de la Banda”, Jenni Rivera is an icon, singer-songwriter, producer, entrepreneur, Mexican music phenomenon, and mother, whose legacy in music lives on through the Jenni Rivera Estate led by her children.  Without a doubt, Jenni Rivera impacted, influenced, and inspired an entire generation of regional Mexican music and culture. She remains “one of the best-selling regional Mexican artists of all-time” with millions of records sold. Born Dolores Janney “Jenni” Rivera Saavedra to immigrant parents in Long Beach, California, she gravitated towards music, launching her career in 1992. Getting real, her songs spoke on topics ranging from relationships to societal ills, resonating with fans worldwide. Throughout her career, she notably received the Premio Lo Nuestro for “Best Female Artist of Regional Mexican Music” 9 consecutive times (18 Premios Lo Nuestro in total), 2 Billboard Awards, 22 Billboard Latin Music Awards, and 4 Latin GRAMMY® nominations, among others. In 2008, the blockbuster album Jenni became her first #1 debut on the Billboard Top Latin Albums Chart. Her legendary catalog consists of multi-platinum #1 albums such as Parrandera, Rebelde y Atrevida; La Gran Señora; and Joyas Prestadas. She was also powered by hits like “Inolvidable”, and “Ya Lo Sé”. In May 2013, after Rivera’s passing, the GRAMMY® Museum dedicated an exhibit to Jenni, enshrining her as “the first Latino artist with a dedicated exhibit at the museum.” The City of Long Beach opened the Jenni Rivera Memorial Park in 2016, and the Los Angeles City Council has deemed August 6 “Jenni Rivera Day.” Eleven years after the eternal Diva de la Banda passed away, producers Sergio Lizárraga and Pavel Ocampo, released Rivera's posthumous album Misión Cumplida, which includes eight unreleased songs that have achieved RIAA Gold Certification for sales in the United States. The song “Pedacito de Mí” hit the No. 1 spot on the Popular Radio Chart in Mexico, while the hit “El Que Hoy Está en Tu Lugar” ranked in the Top 10 of Billboard's Regional Mexican Airplay chart for several consecutive weeks, reflecting the unwavering support of "La Diva de la Banda" fans. Thanks to the undisputed success of the album, Jenni Rivera's Estate released the vinyl record of Misión Cumplida, which offered audiences a new experience to enjoy the music of the “Eternal Diva de la Banda”. Recently, Rivera's voice once again took the digital platforms by storm with the release of a new version for “Que Me Entierren Cantando” alongside her brother Lupillo Rivera. The song has a special meaning as it shows the immense talent and emotional bond shared between brother and sister. Prior to the album launch, Jenni Rivera’s estate released several tracks that went viral and received multiple certifications. In 2019, they released “Aparentemente Bien”, which was certified platinum and trended at #1 in the United States. In 2020, “Engañémoslo” was certified gold, and in 2021, “Motivos” was released in two versions: Banda & Mariachi. Without a doubt, Rivera has left a lot of music for her fans to enjoy. Rivera’s five children continue to carry on her legacy by managing and operating Rivera’s foundation for helping domestic abuse victims. Following the realization of her own experience as a domestic violence survivor, the family established the Jenni Rivera Love Foundation. The foundation provides services to single mothers and victims of both domestic and sexual abuse, continuing its mission of service today. In May 2016, the Jenni Rivera Love Foundation, in alliance with New Life Beginnings, inaugurated “Jenni’s Refuge”, a shelter for women and children in Long Beach, California. Movies, tribute concerts, and documentaries will continue to commemorate Jenni’s legacy and extend it into a new era. Jenni’s spirit lives on forever in her art, and her work continues to change lives. As Rivera’s estate prepares to release more commemorative projects, Jenni's spirit continues to inspire and uplift audiences worldwide. Her indelible mark on music and culture ensures that her legacy will endure for generations to come.   EMBARGO* As a condition of being considered for and subsequently issued press credentials for the Hollywood Walk of Fame events, your outlet has agreed to abide by the following restrictions: No portion of the Walk of Fame Ceremony presentation may be rebroadcast or live streamed or used in any medium whatsoever, including internet, prior to the conclusion of the live ceremony.   ABOUT THE HOLLYWOOD CHAMBER’S WALK HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a celebration of art, entertainment, and all things Hollywood.
