Jenni Rivera’s Brother Feels Her By His Side While He’s Performing
The late Jenni Rivera’s brother, Mexican singer Lupillo Rivera, feels his sister’s presence when he’s performing on stage.
"I feel her. I've felt a heaviness on my shoulder, I've felt shadows around the stage," Rivera told E! News. "It feels good. I like that," he said.
Jenni Rivera died last December when a private plane she was traveling on, with five other passengers and two crewmembers, crashed after taking off from Monterrey to Toluca, Mexico. Rivera had been scheduled to appear on La Voz Mexico.
"It's never going to be a complete healing. The pain and suffering will always be there. It's my sister, somebody that's not here with us anymore. There will always be an empty spot," Lupillo said, before referencing his family’s strong faith. "Being as we believe in God and we know she's in a better place—that's our satisfaction."
Lupillo recently appeared at NASCAR’s Autoclub 400, performing on the event’s FanZone stage. He was honored to have been invited, and expressed his sincere wish for people to continue to remember his sister and what she accomplished before she passed.
"I hope the fans enjoy the shows I'm doing. And I hope they keep on supporting [Jenni’s] image, her music, her personality," Lupillo told E! News. "That's all I ask for."
