Carlos Vives, Sergio George Win Big At Latin GRAMMYs
Even the steady rainfall in Las Vegas couldn't dampen the spectacle of The Biggest Night in Latin Music. It certainly didn't impede the momentum of Carlos Vives and Sergio George, who emerged the big winners at the 14th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards on Nov. 21 at Mandalay Bay Events Center. Colombian singer/songwriter Vives took home three statues: Song Of The Year and Best Tropical Song for "Volví A Nacer" and Best Tropical Fusion Album for Corazón Profundo. New York-born producer/songwriter George won for Record Of The Year for "Vivir Mi Vida" with Marc Anthony, Best Salsa Album for Sergio George Presents Salsa Giants and Producer Of The Year.
Neo-tango collective Bajofondo, producer/songwriter Andrés Castro, Mexican pop/rock singer/songwriter Natalia Lafourcade, and producer/engineer Julio Reyes Copello won two Latin GRAMMYs each. Draco Rosa won Album Of The Year for Vida. Guatemalan singer/songwriter Gaby Moreno was among the first-time Latin GRAMMY winners, picking up Best New Artist honors.
