The legacy of “La Diva de la Banda”, Jenni Rivera, who died in 2012, remains alive despite the times, and their five children try to stay together and work to honor their mother, who taught them, she said. Jacqie Rivera, be together no matter what.
“My mom taught us that regardless of the lawsuit, we always have to be together. We were very close this year,” explained Jacqie, who offered a press conference in Mexico City with her brother Johnny to launch the Mission Accomplished album.
Jacqie is currently the custodian of her mother’s legacy after her aunt Rosie Rivera was ousted due to disagreements between the diva’s children and her siblings (Rosie and Juan Rivera).
However, after being apart for a while, Jacqie concluded that a reconciliation “in her time” might be possible after giving herself space to “heal.”
“We have to heal; there are wounds, and in the future, I feel like it’s possible. For my sister’s (Chiquis) wedding, I don’t know; it’s a day for her, and she deserves to enjoy it. “The times of life are perfect, and I’m open,” Jacqie said after being asked if the whole family will be attending Chiquis’ wedding, the date of which has not yet been released.
In addition, the singer said that she is very proud to see how all the brothers grow and achieve their goals, just as their mother wanted.
“She said in an interview, ‘I won’t rest until I see that my children have achieved something,’ and she is doing it. She always said, This kid (Johnny) has the mind of a producer; he’s very creative, and she does. Me.” grew in my voice. I feel like our mother is helping here,” he shared.
For his part, Johnny said he sometimes felt accompanied by “La Diva de la Banda” when he was feeling pressured and a butterfly would appear to “guide him”, and he also explained that the single from the year that inspired him a lot and connected him to his mother is the album “Pedacito from Me,”, played by his three sisters Jenicka, Chiquis, and Jacqie.
The young producer admitted that his mother’s voice and talent left him “speechless” to this day and that he was always very close to her, even attending concerts, which is why he championed his mother’s legacy, saying it was his greatest dream.
He explained that he knew about “Pedacito de m” eight years ago, but they only found a small fragment in a tape recorder. Last year, they discovered a track they had recorded in the studio and decided to re-record it with the sisters’ voices to include on the album.
“I feel like it was something that healed us all at once. The day we recorded the song, we were all there; it was something I didn’t know I needed until I did, and by the end, I understood like a mother,” added Jacqie.
On the other hand, Jacqie said that Jenni Rivera’s film, which she thinks will be called Jenni,” starring actress Annie González, has already been recorded and is in the editing phase, which she is excited about.
“I remember watching the Selena movie as a kid and being so inspired, and I hope the same thing happens to a lot of young girls with the movie about my mom,” she said.
