Congratulations to all the 2018 Latin Grammys Nominees!
Another meaningful event was the Latin Academy Special Awards Presentation which celebrated the influential careers of Lifetime Achievement Award recipients Dyango, Wilfrido Vargas, and Yuri.
Latin Grammy Week continued its momentum by bestowing the 2018 Latin recording Academy Person of the Year Recognition to a band rather than an individual, for the first time. This Year Six-time Latin Grammy & Four- time Grammy- winning Pop/Rock band Mana were honored for their extraordinary creative accomplishments and philanthropic contributions to the Latin Community, as well for their steadfast and dedicated support of environmental causes and species preservation and protection.
The latin Grammy Week highlighted the power of music to connect us, this year trailblazing women in diverse Latin music and U.S. entertainment fields were again honored at The Latin Recording Academy’s Leading Ladies of Entertainment Event.
Our next decade holds much promise and undoubtedly will overflow with fresh ideas and new music…and that is a great outlook for the highly anticipated 20th latin Grammy Awards, which will be celebrated under the leadership of new executive board members. With their guidance, this event will be memorable, as Latin music continues to be a treasured and honored as part of our culture.
