“It is an honor to pay tribute to the musical career of Jenni Rivera, an artist I interviewed many times over the last 10 years, and for whom I have deep respect and admiration. I wrote this biography as a journalist and Latin music expert to mark her musical life,” said Cobo.

Rivera has sold over 15 million albums worldwide. The singer recorded her first albums in the late 80’s and reached popularity in the Billboard charts in 1992, establishing the difference among the banda norteña genre, often considered a male-dominated field.

Her songs, which addressed social issues, love and infidelity, led Jenni to popularity achieving three nominations for the Latin Grammy. “Jenni sang to women and identified with their problems. No one else was doing what she was doing musically,” said Cobo.

Jenni Rivera performs onstage at the 11th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards on Nov. 11 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

“As a music journalist, I didn’t want to miss this unforgettable moment in Latin music,” said Cobo. She had an amazing life, struggled as a singer, mother and businesswoman. This book is a tribute to an extraordinary woman.
