Luis Fonsi Honored with the iHeartRadio Corazón Latino Award
NEW YORK - October 18, 2021 - The eighth annual iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina celebrated the best in Latin music on Saturday evening with performances by Wisin & Yandel, Prince Royce, Luis Fonsi, Natti Natasha, Zion & Lennox, Lunay, Mariah Angeliq, and a special performance by J Balvin at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The event, hosted by Enrique Santos brought the power of the iHeartRadio Music Festival to Latin music. The event was live streamed exclusively by LiveOne, Inc's subsidiary LiveXLive and broadcasted live nationwide across iHeartMedia's Spanish Contemporary hits, Tropical, Regional Mexican, Tejano, and Spanish Oldies stations.
This year, iHeartMedia and Enrique Santos presented Luis Fonsi with the iHeartRadio Corazón Latino Award (Please see b-roll link HERE). The award honors an individual that exemplifies their big heart through their selfless work in enhancing the lives, heritage and future of the Latin community. A five-time Grammy nominee and five-time Latin Grammy winner, Fonsi broke seven Guinness World Records with his wildly popular song "Despacito," which topped the charts in 47 countries and later continued to dominate the #1 spot with multiple hits including "Échame La Culpa," "Calypso," "Imposible," and "Date La Vuelta," among others. Fonsi has been supporting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for nearly 16 years and was heavily involved in recovery efforts after Hurricanes Irma and Maria impacted much of Puerto Rico and Mexico, which inspired him to create his 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, the Luis Fonsi Foundation.
Straight from the Amway Center in Orlando, the magic of iHeartRadio came to Latin music with an extraordinary lineup that included the following highlights:
The iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina is part of iHeartMedia's incredibly successful roster of major concert events including the iHeartRadio Music Festival, iHeartRadio Music Awards, the nationwide iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Concert Tour Presented by Capital One, the iHeartCountry Festival Presented by Capital One, iHeartRadio ALTer EGO Presented by Capital One and iHeartRadio Wango Tango.
