Woodland Hills, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–May 17, 2007–Top Latin Platinum recording artist Jenni Rivera earns a RIAA/Latin Gold certification for her most personal album to date “Mi Vida Loca” (My Crazy Life), accomplishing a milestone feat as its now a woman, a mother, a sister, a girlfriend who is taking center stage in the highly male dominated Regional Mexican music genre.

Today more than ever ‘Mi Vida Loca’ resonates beyond the title of her album as Jenni Rivera states, “my life has been very crazy and different. I think I’ve lived happily. Difficult, but happily.” Throughout the years Jenni has been openly vocal about her life story, a single mom at 15 and proud mother of 5 children, a fugitive ex -husband who was convicted last week of multiple sexual assault and rape counts (against Rivera’s daughter and sister in 1997) that finally ended last week in a very emotionally charged case in Long Beach, California.

Jenni Rivera has ‘survived’ adversity while simultaneously building a solid career that spans over a decade, a discography of over 12 albums, extensive tours in the United States, Mexico and Central America and as an entrepreneur creating a cosmetic line, a real estate business and writing an autobiography that is due out in the Fall of 2007.

Jenni Rivera is overjoyed, personally and at the widespread success of her ‘vida loca’, her previous album “Parrandera, Rebelde y Atrevida” was awarded Gold & Platinum records in 2006 and now once again is the recipient of a RIAA/Latin Gold certification for her album “Mi Vida Loca.”

While on the Billboard chart “Mi Vida Loca” reached Top 15 on ‘Top Latin Albums’ chart (May 19, 2007 issue) a noteworthy accomplishment for a female recording artist of this particular genre.

Adding to the success her second single “Mirame” is rapidly racing to the No.1 spot on Billboard’s ‘Regional Mexican Airplay’.

Since the release of “Mi Vida Loca” earlier this year Jenni Rivera has been on a promotional roller coaster ride from Coast to Coast, a few weeks ago she caused madness & euphoria amongst her adoring/faithful followers at two in-stores, one in Las Vegas, Nevada with an attendance of over 3,000 fans and over 1,000 fans at the Huntington Park, California location.

“Mi Vida Loca” is a unique album that features a short intro and explanation that unravels throughout each song as Jenni tackles issues close to her heart.

The album included incredible songs such as: “Mi Vida Loca 2” , power ballad “Déjame Vivir,” written by Vicente Uvalle, about an abortion that was not performed, “Sangre De Indio” an incredible song duet with her notorious narco-corrido singer-songwriter brother Lupillo Rivera, plus the banda version of the timeless classic Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive, ” a song that sums up Jenni Rivera’s personal struggle. Also included on the album are: “Inolvidable”, “Hermano Amigo”, “Mírame”, “Ahora Que Estuviste Lejos”, “Dama Divina”, “Sin Capitán”, “Cuanto Te Debo?”, “Déjame Vivir”, “Donde Quedó El Amor?”.

Currently Jenni Rivera is touring in the United States and Mexico, ending her stateside dates in Los Angeles, California on August 11th at the Gibson Amphitheater where she will return for the second time in what promises to be another memorable ‘Sold Out’ concert.
