We are shocked and devastated by the tragic loss of our friend and colleague Jenni Rivera. She was a uniquely talented woman and an inspiration to millions, especially those of us who were lucky enough to work with her.

Estamos conmocionados y devastados por la trágica pérdida de nuestra amiga y colega Jenni Rivera. Ella era una mujer con un talento único y una inspiración para millones, especialmente para los que tuvimos la suerte de trabajar con ella. Aunque será recordada como una cantante legendaria, también era una extraordinaria actriz con un amplio rango de talentos que el mundo recién estaba empezando a descubrir. Enviamos nuestros pensamientos y nuestros rezos a sus hijos y a su familia — en nombre de los directores, productores, elenco y equipo técnico de Filly Brown.

The world lost an extraordinary talent in the realm of Judy Garland, Barbara Streisand, and Frank Sinatra, who took their singing artistry and became dramatic artists in film and television. Jenni Rivera was destined to surpass any artist that we have ever seen coming from the Mexican American culture. She was just starting. My love to her family, especially her children and her mother and father. —Edward James Olmos

El mundo ha perdido a un talento extraordinario en la linea de Judy Garland, Barbara Streisand y Frank Sinatra, que tomaron su arte para el canto y lo convirtieron en arte dramático para el cine y la televisión. Jenni Rivera estaba destinada a sobrepasar a cualquier otro artista que haya surgido de la cultura mexicoamericana. Apenas estaba empezando. Envio todo mi amor a su familia, especialmente a sus hijos, a su madre y a su padre. — Edward James Olmos
