Authorities recovered and transferred the remains of Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera Monday night.

Fans held vigil for Rivera outside the Mexican forensic facility where her remains were taken.

Rivera died in a plane crash on Sunday after the small jet she was traveling in went down in Northern Mexico.

Rivera's learjet disappeared from the radar 62 miles from the northern city of Monterrey at about 3:30 a.m. local time Sunday.

It's still not clear what caused the crash.

Born in Long Beach, Calif., to Mexican immigrants, Rivera sold some 15 million records in her career, won several awards and received multiple Grammy nominations.
