Jenni Rivera wore many hats during her too-brief career: She was an acclaimed singer from a musical family, a producer, a television star, and was on her way to becoming a force in film as well. Here's a look back as some of La Diva's career highlights.
Rivera was also involved in charitable work and, on August 6, 2012, was named spokeswoman for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. August 6 was named "Jenni Rivera Day" by the Los Angeles City Council in her honor.
Top of the Charts
Rivera's tenth studio album, 2008's Jenni, became the singer's first number one on the U.S. Billboard Top Latin Albums chart.
