Fans at the 17th annual Day of the Dead event at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, were witnesses to a hologram of the late singer Jenni Rivera.
According to Billboard, Juan Rivera, Jenni’s younger brother, took the stage to reveal the hologram. He nervously introduced his sister, who became the first regional Mexican singer and Latin artist to have a hologram.
“This is where I was born, in Los Angeles. This is where I first sang, where the audience first applauded me, launched my career and believed in me,” the crowd heard a recording of the late singer say. “It’s the same audience that is still here with me. Thank you for your love. I hope you guys all have fun tonight and are satisfied and that this party that we have here in L.A. every year is also unforgettable.”
Jenni’s oldest daughter, Chiquis Rivera, was in tears and said that she felt like running to the stage to give her mom a hug when she saw the hologram. “I felt like it wasn’t long enough. I wanted more,” she explained.
The special hologram was created by Hologram USA, according to Billboard. They are the same company that worked with the estates of iconic late stars like Whitney Houston.
Jenni’s five children now have their reality show, The Riveras, on NBC Universo airing every Sunday at 10PM/9C.
