Janney Marín (born June 26, 1985), better known as Chiquis Rivera, is an American singer, author, entrepreneur, and television personality. The 31 year old is the eldest daughter of the legendary Banda singer Jenni Rivera. This year will be a very trying time for Chiquis as she tries to juggle her singing career, a tour, run her hair salon “Blow Me Dry” and “Be Flawless” skincare and make-up line, while continuing to help her four siblings who need a mother-figure in their lives.
In April 2015, Chiquis released her memoir titled “Forgiveness” which climbed to #15 on the New York Times Best Selling list. In it she reveals that her father molested her when she was a little girl, and details the well publicized fight with her mother before her death and not being able to say goodbye.
On June 2, 2015 Chiquis released her debut album, Ahora, and became the ﬁrst woman to top the Latin Album charts since her late mom. Many fans of Jenni and critics alike, feel Chiquis has not earned her career in music and that it was simply handed to her by her mother. Humbled by the journey, Chiquis is focused not so much on proving her critics wrong but proving to herself that she can do it. She is currently working on her second record.
