Ana Gabriel, the Mexican singer of hits such as “Tú lo decidiste”, “Soy Como Quise Ser” and “Here I am”, will be receiving the “Living Legend” award at the special “Latin Women in Music” ceremony in Miami, Florida on May 6. Ana Gabriel was chosen to lead the select group of honorees due to her legacy and achievements that include more than two dozen albums, a nearly 50-year career, numerous music career accolades, 20 Top 10 hits and 6 number 1s on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs list, among many others. The event, which is an expansion of Billboard’s Women in Music franchise, seeks to celebrate women who have been influential in Latin music through their artistic achievements and notable contributions that have generated recognition and opportunities for other women, as well as a positive change in the music industry.

The “Latin Women in Music” ceremony will have the participation of well-known artists such as Thalía, Natti Natasha, Goyo, Evaluna Montaner and Emilia Mernes, and will also have Ivy Queen, who received the Icon Award this year at “Billboard’s Women In Music”, as host of the gala, along with the Mexican actress and presenter Jacqueline Bracamontes. According to a statement by Billboard, “the work of Latin artists, executives and creatives who through their work generate positive changes, inclusion and gender equality in the music industry will be celebrated” at the gala.

Leila Cobo, director of Latin/Spanish content for Billboard, said in a statement that the “Latin Women in Music” gala is a “bold and inspiring event.” She added that in this historic year for Latin music, she and her team feel very proud to launch this new franchise “where every year we will celebrate outstanding, powerful and leading women.” Ronald Day, Telemundo’s president of entertainment and content strategy, also expressed his pride in recognizing “such powerful Latinas” who have excelled in various genres and around the world.

The two-hour musical gala will be recorded on the Watsco Center stage and broadcast the following day on Telemundo, representing Latino culture with great performances, shocking historical moments and musical surprises. The event seeks to continue offering opportunities to celebrate Latino culture and unite through the music that moves us all.
