Billboard Latin Women In Music 2023: Photos From the Show
The first-ever Latin Women in Music, which took place Saturday (May 6) in Miami and broadcast Sunday (May 7) on Telemundo and Peacock, was filled with show-stopping performances, memorable speeches and emotional moments. From Thalia’s epic medley (including “Amor a la Mexicana” and “A Quién Le Importa”) to Shakira’s inspirational acceptance speech as Woman of the Year, Billboard captured the best moments from inside the inaugural event at the Watsco Center.
Hosted by Ivy Queen and Jacqueline Bracamontes, the gala is the first of its kind for Latin music. Mujeres Latinas en la Música celebrates Latin female artists, executives and creatives who are proactively working for positive change, inclusion and gender parity in the music industry.
Shakira received the first-ever Woman of the Year award. Other honorees include Ana Gabriel, who was honored with the Living Legend Award; Emilia, received the Rising Star Award; Maria Becerra was awarded the Visionary Award; Evaluna, was honored with the Tradition and Future Award; Goyo, who received the Agent of Change Award, and Thalia, was honored with the Global Powerhouse Award.
The inaugural Latin Women in Music event was announced earlier this year as an expansion of Billboard’s Women in Music franchise. Billboard and Telemundo aim to further elevate Latin music globally and celebrate the women who have made a concrete impact on Latin music through their artistic achievements, or through tangible, noteworthy actions that have brought measurable recognition and opportunity to women, affecting positive change to the industry as a whole.
Watch Mujeres Latinas En la Música on Sunday, May 7 at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on Telemundo and Peacock.
