Regional Mexican singer Jenni Rivera is being remembered on what would have been her 45th birthday July 2, 2014, with a new memorial mural called "La Misma Gran Señora," after one of her songs, on display at Lincoln Park's Plaza De La Raza.
The much-beloved songstress, who died in a 2012 plane crash along with six others in Northern Mexico, was heavily mourned by the Hispanic community, prompting a public memorial service at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City.
San Fernando artist Levi Ponce collaborated with Rivera's son Mike in painting a series of murals across Southern California dedicated to the late singer in a project called "Project Paloma."
"La Misma Gran Señora," was painted on June 29, 2014, at the Plaza De La Raza community center in Lincoln Park and will have a social media presentation June 2nd, 2014 online.
This is Levi Ponce's second mural in Lincoln Park . On Dia De Los Muertos in 2013, Ponce painted a mural of the late singer Selena on the right side of the Plaza De La Raza building. Jenni Rivera's mural is on the left side.
Plaza De La Raza is at 3540 N. Mission Road, Los Angeles, CA 90031
Ponce will be featured on PBS in the near future. Future art project's include a mural in Yucatan Mexico to inspired by the Doors , LA woman.
