Rivera, a popular Banda singer and Mexican television personality, was flying from Monterrey to Toluca when her plane crashed in Northern Mexico early Sunday morning. There were four other passengers and two pilots on-board the plane, and no survivors have been found. Rivera had signed on to star in a new ABC sitcom just last week; she was 43 years old.
