The tragic death of Jenni Rivera ended on a beautiful, musical note.

The 2 ½ hour memorial service for the beloved banda singer took place at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal City Walk and was attended by thousands, including fans and family.

Famous Mexican singers, including Marco Antonio Solis, Joan Sebastian and Ana Gabriel, played music as Rivera’s red casket sat on the stage amongst white roses with a backdrop of photos from her short life.

Family and friends were welcomed on stage to speak, in both Spanish and English, about their loss.

Each of Jenni’s five children also spoke.

Jenni’s youngest son, Johnny, said:

"The person that everyone's talking about is my mom. Mama, I've been crying so much these last few days. I miss you so much. I hope you're taking care of my dad and I hope he's taking care of you, too. I only had 11 short years with my mom. But it's a real honor to say that Jenni Rivera is my mom. That she still lives in me. This is the hardest thing I've ever had to go through in my life, but I am happy to say my mother has moved on and she's finally happy.”

Hundreds of fans who weren’t able to get tickets still stood outside the theater to watch the live broadcast with a single white rose to honor the fallen star.

A private burial will take place next week in Long Beach, Ca.

    Such a sad story and may she RIP, condolences to her family and friends.
    I did not know who she was before but looked her up on YouTube, what a wonderful singer who sadly had her time on this earth cut at an early age.
