Thousands of fans turned out today to mourn the "Diva de la Banda" and hometown girl Jenni Rivera, who was killed in a plane crash earlier this month at age 43. The memorial service was a family affair—her brother minister Pedro Rivera Jr. presided over the service joined onstage by her family, 5 children and extended family. Her 11-year-old son Johnny Angel Lopez told the crowd: "It's a real honor to say that Jenni Rivera, the woman everyone is talking about, is my mom."
