    DIAZ-BALART of florida in the house of representatives Wednesday, January 2, 2013 Mr. DIAZ-BALART. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Jenni Rivera. On December 9, a plane crash took the, life of the singer and six others on board. Jenni Rivera was known as ``La Diva de la Banda,'' the queen of Banda music. But she was much more than a music superstar; she was ``una guerrera,'' a warrior for her family, and a role model to many. She faced monumental challenges in life, but tackled them with dignity and determination. At the [[Page E2036]] public celebration of her life this week, her family described her as being ``perfectly imperfect,'' but to the millions of us moved by her music and her life story, she was and will always be ``nuestra Jenni,'' La Diva de la Banda. I ask that my colleagues join me in celebrating this beautiful guerrera, a guerrera of life and of music.
