Latin pop star returns after more than 20 years
The Latin Recording Academy has announced that singer/songwriter Christina Aguilera will make a triumphant return to the Latin GRAMMYs, after more than two decades, with an electrifying extended performance during the 22nd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards.
The Latin GRAMMY and GRAMMY-winner will take the stage for a performance that includes a rendition of her recently-released “Pa Mis Muchachas,” with nominees Nicki Nicole and Nathy Peluso, together with Becky G.
With the theme “Rediscovering Life Through Music,” the telecast will invite audiences to rediscover what’s important in life using music as a storyline. With one-of-a-kind collaborations and unique Latin GRAMMY moments, the ceremony promises to be an exceptional celebration of musical excellence paired with inspirational storytelling.
