The second edition of Billboard Latin Women in Music was held this Saturday in Miami without the main winner, the Colombian Karol G, and with a pink carpet in which classic, monochromatic and camera-chosen outfits dominated.

Karol G, who was honored with the Woman of the Year award, was the big absentee of the night because she has planned a leg of her “Tomorrow will be beautiful” tour for these dates in Europe, with eight of her concerts at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, starting June 20.

For Leila Cobo, vice president of Billboard Latin and the creator of the night, “Karol G made history last year by being the first woman in history to have second place in Spanish music sales. That's why we celebrate it."

The rest of the night's honorees were present, although not all of them walked the carpet. Ángela Aguilar, Camila Cabello and Kali Uchis, who were recognized with the Musical Dynasty, Global Impact and Rising Star awards, respectively, preferred to go directly to the gala, which will be broadcast tonight, Sunday, June 9 on the Telemundo network .

Elegance and sobriety

Unlike other music awards, in which versatility and experiments in fashion are the order of the day, on this occasion the majority of the outfits marked elegance and sobriety, with long monochromatic suits with sequin applications, beads and even crystals, perfect for cameras.

Gloria Estefan, recipient of the Leyenda award, and Ana Bárbara, with Musical Trajectory, arrived in elegant black suits and excited about the recognition.

Another who arrived in the same color was the Puerto Rican artist Gale, who was one of the nominees for the 2023 Latin Grammy.

“For me there is nothing greater than celebrating with my sisters. “This is a very tough race and the challenges do not stop, but this is what we are for,” Mexican Ana Bárbara told EFE, who is celebrating her 30-year career this year with her “Reina Grupera Tour 2024” tour.

For India, receiving the “Pioneer” award was not only a surprise because of the distinction “but because of the privilege of being alive to receive it,” she told EFE, while posing in a long green dress and a bun with pink extensions. .

“This morning was when what was happening hit me and I got very excited. “I cried a lot,” she added. líder of the women's movement in salsa, and thanked the “true pioneer of the genre”: “Toña la negra” and “my godmother” Celia Cruz.

More girl power

Kany García, who won the Spirit of Change award, said it is particularly “sweet” to receive this award during LGBTQ+ pride month.

“My 'True Self' foundation supports people in the community for standing up for their identity. But although I don't talk about it much, we do help vulnerable women, we support those who need it and I appreciate that that is recognized," the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter, who wore a cobbled corset and a long black skirt, told EFE.

Miss Universe 2020 Andrea Meza, part of the cast of the Telemundo network, repeated the concept of shirt and skirt by wearing a gold stone skirt, with a white organza top crossed at the neck.

One of the few contrasts was offered by the Venezuelan singer-songwriter Elena Rose, who wore an elegant cream-colored satin suit, with no decorations other than large white orchid-shaped earrings.

Women's allies

The only two men who stepped on stage were the salsa singer Luis Figueroa and the pianist Arthur Hanlon.

Both told EFE that they had grown up in a home of women and that it was “an honor to be allies of women in Latin music.”

Billboard's second Latin Women in Music event is an expansion of Billboard's Women in Music franchise.

Its goal is to “celebrate women who have had a concrete impact on Latin music through their artistic achievements, or through tangible and notable actions that have brought measurable recognition and opportunities to women.”
