Top Latin Songwriters Honored @ BMI Music Awards

Top Latin Songwriters Honored at 19th Annual BMI Latin Music Awards

Pitbull, Horacio Palencia, Wisin & Yandel, Espinoza Paz and Universal Music Publishing Group Among Honorees at Ceremony in Las Vegas

 

Leading U.S. music rights organization Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) honored the songwriters and publishers of Latin music’s most-performed songs on U.S. radio and television at the 19th annual BMI Latin Music Awards tonight at the Encore Las Vegas.

International superstar Pitbull received the BMI President’s Award in recognition of his profound influence on the entire entertainment industry. As the 2012 recipient, Pitbull joins an elite list of past honorees that includes Juanes, Kike Santander, Taylor Swift, Emilio and Gloria Estefan, and Willie Nelson. To celebrate, Pitbull treated attendees to a dynamic performance.

As further evidence of his incredible success, Pitbull returned to the stage to share the BMI Latin Songwriter of the Year win with Juan Luis Morena Luna “Wisin,” Llandel Veguilla Malavé “Yandel” and Espinoza Paz. The four honorees reflect the diversity of modern Latin music, from Pitbull’s chart-topping hip-hop and Wisin & Yandel’s edgy reggaeton, to Espinoza Paz’s soulful Regional Mexican compositions.

“Niña De Mi Corazón” earned BMI Latin Song of the Year for songwriter Horacio Palencia and Ferca Global Publishing. “Niña De Mi Corazón” was recorded by La Arrolladora Banda El Limón.

Universal Music Publishing Group garnered its second consecutive BMI Latin Publisher of the Year win thanks to contributing 11 songs to the year’s most-performed list.

The 19th annual BMI Latin Music Awards were hosted by BMI President & CEO Del Bryant and Delia Orjuela, BMI Vice President, Latin Music. BMI represents Latin songwriters based in the U.S. and around the globe through reciprocal agreements with sister performing right organizations in the songwriters’ home countries.
