Through time, JENNI RIVERA's musical upbringing soon manifested in her songwriting skills, a craft that she learned at an early age. Heiress of a musical legacy helmed by her family the renowned Rivera's, of which she is proud. As a child, her background would soon cast a spell that would trace the path she would follow in music. Her interest in music was piqued while she watched her father and brothers spend endless hours in recording studios or singing traditional Regional Mexican songs along with Corridos and Norteñas.
Born in Long Beach, California of Mexican immigrant parents, at an early age JENNI RIVERA already felt the calling of Regional Mexican music in her heart. The star is far from her early years as a Business Administration student who went on to work as a real estate agent, as well as helped her father run his record company.
In 1999, she would release her debut album scoring her first chart- busting-Corrido hit of her authorship, "Las Malandrinas," off her debut album on Fonovisa Records titled "Que Me Entierren Con La Banda." On her sophomore album "Dejate Amar," Jenni repeated her success with another chart busting hit titled "Mi Querida Socia." In 2002 Jenni earned a GRAMMY® nomination as Best Banda Album for her album "Se Las Voy A Dar A Otro".
