Luis Fonsi to Receive the iHeartRadio Corazón Latino Award at the Event
NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --LiveXLive Media (NASDAQ: LIVX) ("LiveXLive"), global platform for livestream and on-demand audio, video and podcast content, announced today its continued streaming partnership with iHeartMedia, the number one audio company in America, with the return of the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina live from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, October 16, 2021. The annual concert event showcases the ever-growing cultural power of Latin music with an A-list slate of performances from Wisin & Yandel, Prince Royce, Luis Fonsi, Natti Natasha, Zion & Lennox, Lunay, Mariah Angeliq, and a special performance from J Balvin, with more to be announced. Enrique Santos, President and Chief Creative Officer of iHeartLatino and on-air talent for iHeartRadio, will once again host the eighth annual event.
LiveXLive will exclusively stream the 2021 iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina for fans globally, and iHeartMedia's Spanish Contemporary Hits, Tropical, Regional Mexican, Tejano, and Spanish Oldies radio stations will broadcast the event live in their local markets and on iHeartRadio.com.
In addition to the performances, legendary artist Luis Fonsi will receive the iHeartRadio Corazón Latino Award, which honors an individual who exemplifies their big heart through their selfless work 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.
"LiveXLive is thrilled with our ongoing partnership with iHeartMedia," said Dermot McCormack, President of LiveXLive. "This year's iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina will be an unforgettable festival showcasing the best of today's Latin performers. We are excited to bring this incredibly energized and culturally significant experience for fans worldwide."
"Nothing matches the energy of live Latin music," said Santos. "After a wonderful virtual event in 2020, we are excited to be back in person at the Amway Center with a truly impressive lineup. We are especially excited to present Luis Fonsi with the iHeartRadio Corazón Latino Award, for his dedication to uplifting the Latin community and sharing Latin culture around the world."
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, August 5th at 12 p.m. ET via Ticketmaster.com.
