Billboard Latin Music Awards (2008)

Guest Author - Karin Norgard

The 19th annual Billboard Latin Music Awards were held on April 10 in Miami and televised on Telemundo. This year's Billboards showed the diversity of Latin music today, with nearly a dozen artists and groups winning two or more awards.

At the front of the pack was merenguero Juan Luis Guerra, who won three awards for Tropical Album of the Year, Hot Latin Songs Artist of the Year, and Producer of the Year. Among those with two awards were reggaetón artist Daddy Yankee, bachata band Aventura, and female Latin pop singers Jenni Rivera and Gloria Estefan. And in addition to winning the Latin Pop Album of the Year award for his album La Vida . . . Es Un Ratico, Juanes also won the Spirit of Hope Award for his work with humanitarian causes.
