Luis Fonsi to Receive Trailblazer Award at Hispanic Heritage Awards

There’s no stopping him, Luis Fonsi is set to receive the ‘Trailblazer Award’ at the 2017 Hispanic Heritage Awards, taking place Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017, at Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.

The award ceremony will be broadcast nationally on Oct. 6 at 10 p.m. ET on PBS.

José Antonio Tijerino, president, and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation had this to say:

As Latinos continue to make an impact across all fields and industries, Luis Fonsi has made an indelible impression on America and across the globe through his music overall and, specifically, his record-setting single ‘Despacito.’

Fonsi will join already announced honorees Gael García Bernal, Alba Colón, Rudy Beserra and the nation’s undocumented youth the “Dreamers” as part of the annual celebration, which was created by the White House in 1988 to commemorate the establishment of Hispanic Heritage Month in America.

Felicidades Luis Fonsi, a well deserved recognition.
