GRAMMY Museum Receives Official Proclamation: Nov. 18 Is Latin GRAMMY Day
The GRAMMY Museum has received an official proclamation from L.A. City Council President Herb Wesson announcing that Nov. 18 is hereby Latin GRAMMY Day.
The proclamation is in honor of the Museum's Nov. 18 launch party for the Museum's new exhibit, Latin GRAMMY: 20 Years Of Excellence, which showcases a variety of iconic moments and performances from two decades of the prestigious Latin GRAMMY Awards.
From the tuxedo Juan Gabriel wore during his memorable 40-minute performance at the 10th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards to the outfit Luis Fonsi wore during his performance of "Despacito" at the 18th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, Latin GRAMMY: 20 Years Of Excellence is the Museum's inaugural exhibit on its newly constructed third floor.
Taking visitors on a walk through two decades of unforgetable moments that shaped our culture, the exchibit will also feature instruments played by Latin GRAMMY and GRAMMY winners, including Lila Downs, Alejandro Sanz, Julieta Venegas, and more, plus the paint-stained shirt Ricky Martin wore at his performance with the Blue Man Group at the 8th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards.
Latin GRAMMY: 20 Years Of Excellence will open to the public on Nov. 20 and run through spring 2020. For tickets and more info, visit the Museum's website.
