Chiquis Rivera
Music Superstar, Star of "The Riveras" and Beauty Entrepreneur Keynote Address Saturday at 1:30
Janney Marin, also known as Chiquis Rivera, has traveled a long, and sometimes unusual road to become the artist, singer-songwriter, bestseller author and business entrepreneur that she is today.

Born into a family of artists, she always had her own dream: to get up on stage and let her voice to be heard. However, many events, turns and falls came her way since she was a little girl, and destiny decided that her career had to wait.

First, Chiquis devoted her teen years and also her early 20‘s to help and assist to her mother’s success, the beloved Jenni Rivera, La Diva de La Banda. In that role, Chiquis became a mother to her siblings, a business woman and a producer, with the launching of several perfumes and other enterprises under the Rivera branding.

With time, reality shows came along, and Chiquis captivated the audience with Jenni Rivera Presents: Chiquis & Raq-C, I Love Jenni, and Chiquis n’ Control. Chiquis established herself as a pioneer in this genre for the Latino world.

After the tragic accident that ended her mother’s life, Chiquis had to face the toughest decisions of all, and overcome the harshest critics and bullying. However, she decided to take it where Jenni left off, honored her mom’s lessons and dreams, and started her own singing career, against all odds. Having a famous last name helps, indeed, but also means a heavy load to carry.

Chiquis quickly became the new face to carry Jenni’s torch on stage. “That’s something my mom and I had already planned, she was going launch me as a singer and already had the details lined up,” explains Chiquis. “I couldn’t allow that horrible accident to freeze the dreams of mother and daughter.”

Since, Chiquis Rivera has released her first album “Ahora”, obtaining two iTunes number ones, and in less than two years, she has been honored with multiple awards and nominations.

Her memoirs, FORGIVENESS, published under ATRIA BOOKS, became a New York Times Best Seller ( in English and Spanish), and has appeared in the cover of PEOPLE EN ESPAÑOL, TV y NOVELAS and LATINA MAGAZINE several times. Recently, Chiquis has successfully launched her own brand of skin and beauty care, Be Flawless.

As TV personality, Chiquis is a household name in most of the major Latino Awards ceremonies, where she is constantly invited to host or perform: LATIN GRAMMYS, PREMIOS LO NUESTRO, PREMIOS JUVENTUD, PREMIOS DE LA RADIO, PREMIOS BANDA MAX, LATIN BILLBOARDS, and LATIN AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS. Chiquis was also invited to co-host the legendary morning show THE VIEW, alongside with Barbara Walters and Whoopie Goldberg.

As a role model, Chiquis has managed to inspire young adults to seek independency and a healthy lifestyle, to love their looks and embrace their individuality. With the help of her more than 4 million followers in all her social media platforms, her non profit organization was born: BOSSBEE NATION, which provides scholarships and support to many young Latinos who face similar struggles to those she endured herself.

After a windy road and many of those adverse turns, Chiquis has become the voice of a whole generation that is ready to work hard to achieve their dreams, despite the obstacles.
