Jenni Rivera's children throw a birthday party for the late star every year to honour her memory.

The Mexican singer was killed in a plane crash in 2012 at the age of 43, and her eldest daughter has revealed the family will gather together on 2 July (14), the day she would have celebrated her birthday, for a special party of remembrance.

Chiquis Rivera, 29, explains they plan to throw the party every year to keep the music superstar's memory alive, telling People en Espanol, "It's a day to tell her that we love her, miss her, that we hope she's proud of what we're doing, how we are celebrating her life and legacy... On her birthday, we always think about her with much love and with the beautiful smile that she had."

Rivera would have turned 45 on 2 July (14).
