Now to Universal City where thousands of mourners are gathered at the Gibson Amphitheater to say goodbye to Latin superstar, Jenni Rivera.

La Diva de la Banda, as she was known, was one of the biggest acts in Latin music, and she had recently crossed over into TV stardom with a reality show called "I Love Jenni."

Rivera died on December 9 when her small plane went down in a remote area of Northern Mexico. KPCC's Ruxandra Guidi joins us from the memorial with more.
