Biography

Janney Dolores Rivera (July 2, 1969 – December 9, 2012), better known as Jenni Rivera, was an American singer-songwriter, actress, television producer, and entrepreneur of Mexican heritage, known for her work within the banda and norteña music genres. She began recording in 1992, and her recordings often have themes of social issues, infidelity, and relationships. Her tenth studio album, Jenni (2008), became her first number-one album in the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart in the United States. In 2010, she appeared in and produced the reality TV show Jenni Rivera Presents: Chiquis & Raq-C. She also appeared in and produced I Love Jenni starting in 2011 and Chiquis ‘n Control in 2012. Her acting debut was in the film Filly Brown, scheduled to be released in 2013.

Rivera was born in Long Beach, California. Her parents are Mexican immigrants who raised Rivera and her four brothers and sister (including Lupillo Rivera) in a tight-knit musical household. While still in high school she became pregnant with the first of her five children, and eventually married the child’s father, José Trinidad Marín.

Rivera made her first recording in 1994 as a birthday present to her father. She then made more recordings and signed to Capitol/EMI’s Latin division after receiving significant airplay on Southern California radio stations. Her first album, Chacalosa (slang for “party girl”), was released in 1995, and sold over one million copies.
