Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame Opens Honoring Julio Iglesias, Jose Feliciano
By Alexandra Gratereaux Fox News Latino (Original Article)
The first honorees of the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame were announced this week in Miami Beach.
During the ceremony, six songwriters from the romantic Spanish-language era were recognized including Julio Iglesias and Jose Feliciano. The event was also the debut of the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame organization, the first of its kind catered to Latin composers.
“There are so many great writers in the Latin world,” said producer and songwriter Desmond Child, who helped create and shape the organization and ceremony.
“We are on a mission and we’ve now immortalized [these songwriters],” he added.
The event, which took place at the Bacardi Building in downtown Miami, home to the Young Arts Foundation, also included Mexican composer Armando Manzanero, who wrote such classics such as “Voy a apagar la luz” and “Contigo aprendi.” (more…)
Natalie Cole on the red carpet before the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame gala
BY JORDAN LEVIN MIAMIHERALD.COM (Original Article)
Natalie Cole looked and sang like a diva at the inaugural Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame gala at the New World Symphony on Tuesday night, delivering a lovely rendition of Acercate Mas (Get Closer) in a “Unforgettable” style duet with video of her father Nat King Cole. “It’s not easy being first, and Dad was a first in so many ways,” Cole told the audience at the New World Center on Miami Beach, as she accepted the Premio Pionero Desi Arnaz on behalf of her father, who was friends with the famous Cuban actor and singer. Nat King Cole was revered in Cuba for recording three albums of Latin American songs. “I can only imagine Desi and my Dad are looking down on us.”
But backstage in her dressing room the pop idol’s daughter, still wearing an elaborate ruffled pink gown, was sniffling with a nasty cold. “You know, the show must go on,” Cole said. She not only overcame blocked sinuses, but worries about singing in Spanish for the first time – in front of a mostly Latino audience. “They’re kinda looking at me like ‘oh really’,” she said. But she took heart from the song. “There’s something about the music that’s so moving,” said Cole, who will release an album of her father’s Spanish repertory this summer. “The melodies and the meaning are so beautiful. I’m having so much fun.”
Two Cuban-American music producing icons inaugurate the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame
By Kristina Puga, NBCLATINO.com (Original Article)
When “Livin’ la Vida Loca” comes on the radio, most people solely give credit to Ricky Martin, not realizing that without songwriters Desmond Child and Draco Rosa, there would be no lyrics to the popular, upbeat song. That is one of the reasons Cuban immigrant songwriter/producers in the American mainstream for more than four decades, Desmond Child and Rudy Perez, fought so hard to create a Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame. It finally came to fruition in October of 2012, and on April 23, the first awards gala will be held in Miami honoring seven iconic songwriters, including Manuel Alejandro, Jose Feliciano, Jose Angel Espinoza “Ferrusquilla,” Julio Iglesias, Armando Manzanero, Concha Valdez Miranda, and post-humous inductee Roberto Cantoral.
