UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (December 19, 2012)--Fans of Jenni Rivera remembered the Mexican-American singer Wednesday at a memorial service in Universal City, Calif.
Thousands gathered to honor the singer, who died with six other people earlier this month in a plane crash in northern Mexico that is still under investigation.
A red casket sat onstage amid a sea of white roses, as images of Rivera played on a big screen and fans chanted her name.
Rivera's children were among those who performed at the service in the Gibson Amphitheatre.
Rivera, who was born in Los Angeles, started her career by selling cassette tapes at flea markets.
She went on to sell more than 15 million copies of her 12 major-label albums.
