Naya Rivera’s family have broken their silence on their loved one’s tragic death, after it was recently confirmed that the star died by accidental drowning. Naya’s body was found in Lake Piru on Monday (July 13th) after she was reported missing last Wednesday (July 8th) in a suspected drowning incident. After the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that it was in fact Naya’s body that was found in the lake and that she had died by drowning, the actress’ family released a statement.
“We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and prayers for Naya, Josey and our family over the past week,” the statement reads. “While we grieve the loss of our beautiful legend, we are blessed to honor her everlasting legacy and magnetic spirit. Naya was an amazing talent, but was an even greater person, mother, daughter and sister. Thank you to the men and women of the Ventura, Tulare, and San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Departments for your commitment and unwavering effort to find Naya. We extend endless gratitude and ovation to the heroine who found her. Thank you to her friends, colleagues, and fans for your continuous support. Heaven gained our sassy angel. We kindly request that our privacy be respected during this very difficult time.”

The search for Naya began last week after her 4-year-old son, Josey, was found floating on a boat alone on Lake Piru. He later told officers that he had been swimming with his mom when she “boosted him onto the deck” of the boat. The child turned around only to see his mom “disappear under the surface of the water.” During a press conference on Monday (July 13th), Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub indicated that authorities suspected that that Naya had “mustered enough energy to get her son back onto the boat” as it began to drift, “but not enough to save herself.”
Rest in peace Naya Rivera. Sending our love and condolences to her family and friends during this time.

Yin Lin’s Resounding Keys to Success”
Nestled amidst the electric heartbeat of Shanghai, Yin Lin’s tryst with the ivory keys of a piano commenced when she was a mere toddler of three. Born and nurtured in the rich cultural milieu of this dynamic city, she embraced her passion with open arms, setting the stage for a musical journey that many can only dream of.
By the age of 15, she had already graced the prestigious corridors of Shanghai Normal University School of Music. Under the nurturing wings of renowned figures like Shuxing Zheng, Lan’er Hu, and Zhebang Xie, Yin Lin didn’t just evolve; she soared, etching her name into the annals of music history. Her prodigious talents didn’t go unnoticed; she clinched distinguished honors such as the Pearl River Piano Cup National Pentathlon Competition and the much-coveted MAP-IMC award in 2021.
Yin’s thirst for knowledge was insatiable. Adding more feathers to her cap, she pursued multiple degrees, with her academic journey reaching an apex when she secured the Artist Certificate from Azusa Pacific University School of Music. As we speak, a scholarship awaits her at La Sierra University, all under the esteemed Dr. Elvin Rodriguez’s tutelage. And come this fall, another chapter awaits as she embarks on a DMA degree program at the renowned University of Southern Mississippi.
The timeline between 1999 and 2022 isn’t just years on a calendar for Yin; it’s a collage of her multifaceted engagements. Be it mesmerizing audiences with soulful solo recitals or rubbing shoulders in masterclasses with industry giants such as Dr. Allan Smith and the Grammy Award-winning Opera Singer, Victoria Livengood, Yin has done it all. A shining feather in her cap was her collaboration with the celebrated cellist, Yi-Bin Chu, in 2022.
Beyond performing, Yin Lin has left indelible marks in administrative roles, helming positions as the Artistic Director at the MARKER AND PIONEER International Culture Exchange Center. She also showcased her versatile talents as a piano accompanist and a music worship leader at revered institutions like Claremont Chorale INC and the Mountain View Mennonite Church.
Yin Lin’s musical odyssey, spanning from institutions like the Shanghai YAMAHA Music School to the Los Angeles Chinese Musicians Ensemble Chorus, echoes her relentless passion and dedication. Her story isn’t just about mastering the keys of a piano but resonates with a deep love for the symphony of life.
