NEW YORK, NY (APRIL 8, 2022) — The Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation®, in partnership with GRAMMY® -winning songwriter and producer Lin-Manuel Miranda and the Ford Motor Company Fund, the philanthropic arm of Ford Motor Company, donated musical instruments valued at $40,000 to George Washington Educational Campus in Washington Heights, New York.

The donation was part of the first live, in-person Latin GRAMMY In The Schools™ educational program since 2020, and featured a conversation and performance in honor of Miranda. A Q&A with students moderated by award-winning Broadway actress and television personality Bianca Marroquín followed.

Eight-hundred enthusiastic music students from George Washington Educational Campus received the surprise of a lifetime when Miranda arrived to watch their performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and the Oscar-nominated single “Dos Oruguitas,” written by Miranda for the Oscar-winning Disney animated feature film, Encanto.

“What a thrill to watch first-hand as the incredibly talented students at the George Washington Educational Campus performed my work and brought their fellow students to their feet,” said Miranda. “I’m so grateful to be here with the Latin GRAMMY In The Schools program to support their dreams.”

“We live in a world with little room for creativity, and the arts allow our students to explore their creative brilliance and limitless possibilities,” said Zulaika Velázquez, Artistic Director & Teaching Artist at George Washington Educational Campus. “We are incredibly grateful and honored by the generous donation from the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation, Ford Motor Company Fund, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Welcome to our theater family!”

“Our commitment to fostering the next generation of Latin music creators remains steadfast. Through the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation, we bolster programs that provide young musicians with access to instruments and a first-class education,” said Manuel Abud, CEO of The Latin Recording Academy®. “Together, with the generosity of the Ford Motor Company Fund, and the dedication of the leadership and students at George Washington Educational Campus, we continue to preserve our cultural heritage.” 

“Music education is an important component of providing students with a well-rounded education. We are proud to support the Latin GRAMMY In The Schools educational program and the donation of musical instruments to inspire and motivate students to pursue their musical studies,” said Yisel Cabrera, Senior Manager, Ford Motor Company Fund.

The performing arts program at George Washington Educational Campus was launched by Velázquez in 2015, in partnership with former principal Juan Villar. Together, they saw a unique opportunity to leverage musical theater as a holistic learning tool where students would cultivate performance skills in a safe space and develop their confidence, learn and improve fluency in English, and gain a better understanding of complex subject matters in a creative and immersive environment. The program has continued to grow thanks to the incredible support of the new administration and current principal, Sofia Russo, who have been instrumental in helping to usher in change and continue to champion the program’s expansion for the school.

The vision included plans for built-in music and TV studios at George Washington Educational Campus which are nearing completion. Over the last seven years, Velázquez and her students have been hard at work bringing productions to life. As a result of their efforts, the program will be expanding this fall to include a teacher who will focus on dance and choreography that has been in place since 2015 but did not have a full-time teacher. Willi Mena, the new teacher and choreographer, has been collaborating with Velázquez for years in other productions. Over the course of the next school year, each department will work together to execute new productions. The theater department will focus on the acting company of characters, the technical theater department will develop lighting and set design, the music school will master the score and the dance department will center on the choreography. In the future, the program aims to also incorporate a costume department. 

Since the beginning of the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation's partnership with Ford Motor Company Fund in 2014, more than 28,660 students have benefited from donations exceeding $560,000 worth of musical instruments to schools in U.S. cities such as Aransas Pass, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and New York; as well as internationally in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Mexico City, Mexico; Arecibo, Humacao, Yauco, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Latin GRAMMY In The Schools is an educational program that informs and connects music students with professionals in the Latin music industry and supports educational music departments that have financial limitations. The Foundation invites artists, professional musicians, and sound engineers to visit middle and high schools, universities, or music education institutions to share their personal stories and experiences with students that highlight the effort it takes to overcome career obstacles. The goal is for students to learn to optimize the educational opportunities presented to them, giving them an advantage and strong academic preparation to be able to compete in the music industry.

 

Previous artists who have participated in the program include: Ángela Aguilar, David Bisbal, Marilina Bertoldi, Miguel Bosé, Calle 13, Pedro Capó, Camilo, Chino & Nacho, Chiquis, Luis Coronel, Silvestre Dangond, Joss Favela, Fonseca, Luis Fonsi, Becky G, Karol G, Kany GarcíaGente de Zona, Leslie Grace, Carlos Jean, Jesse & Joy, Natalia Lafourcade, Poncho Lizárraga, Claudia Montero, Ednita Nazario, Christian Nodal, Ángel "Cucco" Peña, Prince Royce, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Olga Tañón, Thalía, Christian SerratosDiego Torres, Carlos Vives, Wisin, and Sebastián Yatra.

MIAMI (MAY 22, 2024) — The Latin Recording Academy® announced that Latin GRAMMY® and GRAMMY® winner, Carlos Vives, will be the 2024 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year™.

Vives will be honored for his more than three-decade career as a multifaceted singer and composer, as well as for his continued commitment to environmental and social initiatives.

“Carlos Vives is one of the most prolific and beloved artists of our time, whose commitment to Latin music and support for the new generations truly personifies the values of our Academy,” said Manuel Abud, CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. “We honor him as our Person of the Year for his vast contributions to our musical heritage and for his many philanthropic initiatives.”

Meanwhile, Vives said, “I am honored and moved to have been chosen as the 2024 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year. It is the reward for an authentic journey, for a wonderful team and, above all, it is the recognition of the musical spirits of our Latin American diversity. These spirits taught us to love and enrich our language, to take care of it and to respect it in order to exalt humanity with it.”

With a career spanning more than 30 years, Carlos Vives is one of the most respected artists in Spanish-language music and a pioneer of a new Latin American sound, redefining traditional Colombian vallenato by incorporating pop and rock. He is an 18-time Latin GRAMMY winner and two-time GRAMMY winner—the first Colombian to win the latter award—with more than 10 billion streams on digital platforms, 20 million albums sold, and hits like “La Gota Fría,” “Pa' Mayte,” “La Tierra Del Olvido,” “Fruta Fresca” and “Volví A Nacer”. Vives has become an ambassador of Colombian and Latin American culture around the world, and his commitment also transcends the musical realm. In 2015, he created the Tras La Perla initiative to promote the sustainable development of Santa Marta and its ecosystem. In addition, he created the Escuela de Música Río Grande to offer artistic experiences to children and young people, and founded the record label Gaira Música Local to promote new Colombian talent. As part his ongoing commitment to music education, Vives has been a strong advocate and generous supporter of the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation® since its inception, and sponsored its annual Prodigy Scholarship in 2018.

Vives will be celebrated at a special star-studded gala as part of the 25th anniversary of the Latin GRAMMYs®. The heartfelt tribute concert will feature renditions of his renowned repertoire performed by an array of notable artists and friends. Details of the coveted event to be celebrated during the 2024 Latin GRAMMY® Week in Miami will be announced at a later date.

The Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year honors musicians and their artistic achievements in the Latin music industry as well as their humanitarian efforts. The past honorees are Laura Pausini (2023), Marco Antonio Solís (2022), Rubén Blades (2021), Juanes (2019), Maná (2018), Alejandro Sanz (2017), Marc Anthony (2016), Roberto Carlos (2015), Joan Manuel Serrat (2014), Miguel Bosé (2013), Caetano Veloso (2012), Shakira (2011), Plácido Domingo (2010), Juan Gabriel (2009), Gloria Estefan (2008), Juan Luis Guerra (2007), Ricky Martin (2006), José José (2005), Carlos Santana (2004), Gilberto Gil (2003), Vicente Fernández (2002), Julio Iglesias (2001) and Emilio Estefan (2000).

The evening was hosted by DJ Pedraza.

The event, which took place at the Plaza de Toros de La Malagueta, was co-financed by the Programa FEDER Andalucía 2021-2027 and the Regional Government of Andalucía.

As part of The Latin Recording Academy’s mission to promote Latin music and build bridges between countries, musical genres, and cultures, Puerto Rican artist Pedro Capó kicked off the evening by performing some of his most beloved songs including “La Fiesta,” “Tutu,” “Existo,” and his hit “Calma,” winner of two Latin GRAMMYs, including Song Of The Year.

Next, Spanish singer Omar Montes, previously nominated in the Best Flamenco Album category, presented a special arrangement of “Pacquiao”—an unreleased song that he will launch soon—and performed a moving and sensitive rendition accompanied onstage by a twelve-piece string ensemble. He also sang his latest hit, “La Sevillana,” concluding his set with a version of the song “Yo Lo Soñé.”

Colombian band Morat closed out the night with a very special performance that got the audience singing along to their greatest hits, including their Latin GRAMMY-nominated songs “No Se Va,” “Cómo Te Atreves,” “A Dónde Vamos,” “En Solo Un Día,” and “Acuérdate De Mí,” among others.

Also, institutional figures such as Francisco de la Torre, Mayor of Málaga, Arturo Bernal, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sports of the Regional Government of Andalucía, and José Francisco Salado Escaño, President of the Regional Government of Málaga, attended the event.

Prominent local figures such as Javier Banderas, Chiara, Bárbara Mirjan, Fernando Ramos, Salma and Ana Vera, among others, joined the celebration.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Paco de Lucía Scholarship, awarded by the Latin Grammy® Cultural Foundation.

The event was produced by Maracena Moreno and the Latin Recording Academy team led by Ayleen Figueras.

This was the second live event that The Latin Recording Academy has hosted in the Community of Andalucía this year, to continue elevating its culture around the world, with a calendar of events that will extend until 2025. This past April, the city of Cádiz ¬hosted the Latin GRAMMY® Celebra: Paco de Lucía event.
