The 23rd Annual BMI Latin Music Awards were last night and the event was full of Latin music, pop stars, and fun. The awards ceremony was held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Mexican pop star Gloria Trevi received the President’s Award. Trevi, who has been called the Mexican Madonna, has sold over 20 million records over the course of her 20-year career.
After receiving her award, Trevi put on an exciting performance. She performed a slew of her hits, beginning with 1989’s “Dr. Psiquiatra” and included newer hits like her 2006 “Todos me Miran.”
This year, the Songwriter of the Year Award was a tie. First-time winner Jesus Tarazon and fifth-time winner Horacio Palencia took home this award.
The BMI Song of the Year Award went to the song that received more airplay than any other song. This year was the first time that the most performed regional Mexican song and most performed contemporary Latin song were honored. The Latin Contemporary Song of the Year award went to “Ay Vamos,” while the Regional Mexican Song of the Year Award went to Horacio Palencia for the fifth time.
The Latin Publisher of the Year went to Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Watch the video below to see the winners receive their awards.
