“Thank you for seeing this wonderful scenario. Representing the Rivera family would like to thank the production and the people who have given us their love in this difficult time. Want to share what my sister was standing here.
He liked to come every week, he was excited, but, most importantly, is that you could see this great lady, transparent, with a great career tireless and very faithful to each project he had.
“Nobody owns their own destiny, there are things that are beyond our reach. She was and always will be the strong woman, luchona, and the woman of the people. My sister Jenni Rivera will always be the “Diva of the Band”as she had said, “I love you, my people,” said Lupillo.
