Continuing the Hispanic Heritage Awards’ long-running tradition of also celebrating the richness and stylistic diversity of Hispanic music and culture, the 35th anniversary broadcast will once again spotlight special musical guests spanning from established superstars to the introduction of essential new voices that will carry the communities’ music well into the future.

This year, that collection features multi-GRAMMY and/or LATIN GRAMMY winners such as Colombian Vallenato champion and previous Hispanic Heritage Award honoree Carlos Vives, beloved Mexican singer-songwriter Julieta Venegas, and one of Cuba’s leading Timba/tropical music ambassadors Aymée Nuviola.
