PUERTO RICO TRIUMPHS IN LATIN GRAMMY AWARDS

Las Vegas (U.S.A.) / Puerto Rico triumphed today in the 18th edition of the Latin Grammy Awards thanks to the prizes won by Luis Fonsi, Residente and Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others, who dedicated their triumphs to their land after the hit devastating of Hurricane Maria on the island.

With his hymn Despacito, Fonsi put hallmark of his genius to the ceremony with a total of four awards: song of the year, recording of the year, better fusion / urban interpretation and best short version music video.

“What a night, what a blessing, what a privilege that your work is to make songs and communicate through music,” said Fonsi as he picked up his fourth award of the night. “Long live music in Spanish!”, he added.

Previously, in his appearance in the press room, when Fonsi carried three statuettes, he recalled that 2017 is being “a beautiful year” due to the overwhelming success of Despacito, a song with which he had the privilege of “representing our language in the whole world”.

“Thanks to my Puerto Rico for being the perfect place to make the video. The song is a hymn to my country. Everything I do and everything I will do, now more than ever, is to celebrate my culture and my music, “said Fonsi, who asked for international help for those affected by the hurricane on his island.

“We will move forward,” he said.

For its part, Residente won the trophies for best urban album (Residente) and best urban song (Somos anormales).

“I dedicate it to my country with all my heart. I love my country and I give my life for my country. This goes for them, “he said.

The artist recalled that he worked for two years on this album and for that he sacrificed a lot of time without enjoying his family.

“I tried to give something real and honest, with a precision that I think has not been seen before,” he acknowledged.

In addition, artist Lin-Manuel Miranda received the Presidency Award from the Latin Recording Academy, a trophy awarded for his outstanding and numerous contributions to the Latino community.

“This honour is a pride. But to tell you the truth, I’m here because of a lot of people. I come from the world of theater, of collaboration. Nobody gets here alone. This is for my comrades from (the musicals) ‘Hamilton’ and ‘In the Heights’, “said Miranda, a New Yorker of Puerto Rican origin.

“This is for Puerto Rico,” he shouted before mentioning the name of the country five times in a row. “Lack of indignation in the news about the catastrophe on the island. People can not forget the situation there”, he concluded. (November 17, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
