The first edition of the Latin American Music Awards was flavorful at its entirety. Beginning with red carpet arrivals, including the beautiful and exceptionally talented Leslie Grace (right). Humbled and excited to be there, she proved that simplicity is sometimes the best option not only in dresses, but also in personality. Definitely one of our favorite Iconic Chica's of the night!
A highly hyped crowed waited for the show to commence. Puerto Rican star and urban artist Daddy Yankee opened the show with an unforgettable performance and took home two awards, Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Song "Sigueme y te Sigo".
Winners of the Latin American Music Awards included Enrique Iglesias for Artist of the Year, Gloria Trevi with Favorite Female Artist, and Gente de Zona feat. Marc Anthony for Favorite Tropical Song "La Gozadera". The list goes on! The highlight of the night, however was the epic finale with a beautiful tribute to the forever iconic Celia Cruz. Jeimy Osorio and Modesto Lacen introduced this tribute with a bang, saying nothing but beautiful things about diversity and the impact Celia's music had in the Latin American culture.
With its success in both tv ratings and social media, there's no doubt the Latin American Music Awards will return for 2016.
