As the 56th annual GRAMMY awards sneak up on us, we can’t help but acknowledge those artists who have represented the Latino community at the renowned music event.
The Latin GRAMMY awards have been getting the job done for the past 14 years; however, the GRAMMY awards also recognize the hard work and success of many Latino artists in the entertainment industry.
Draco Rosa, Marc Anthony, Paquita la del Barrio, Aleks Syntek, Los Amigos Invisibles and Carlos Vives are among the 20 Latinos nominated for a GRAMMY in 2014.
In the list of presenters are artists Gloria Estefan, Juanes and Marc Anthony, joining those who will be announcing the lucky winners who will receive golden phonographs.
No Hispanic artists will perform at the 56th annual awards, but in honor of those nominated and presenting this year, we have put together a compilation of los artistas that have rocked the GRAMMY stage in previous years.
