Pitbull To Honor Frontline Workers At The 2020 Latin GRAMMYs
Pitbull will have frontline workers on stage as part of his band during his performance at the 2020 Latin GRAMMYs, broadcasting Thursday, Nov. 19. The performance aims to honor their efforts as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
Captain Eddy Alarcon and Lieutenant Troy Maness will be on guitar, Major Frank Fernandez will be on drums and physician’s assistant Debi Kuiper-Tomas will take bass. Sergeant Liz Bremer, labor and delivery registered nurse Kim Fleurinord and firefighter Adrian Ballard will join in for background vocals. Marlon Ferdinand, retired U.S. Air Force Major, registered nurse, paramedic and firefighter, will also provide backup vocals.
President/CEO of the Latin Recording Academy Gabriel Abaroa Jr. said this year's awards will, above all, show appreciation.
"This year has been an extraordinary one and, as such, the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards will not be about competition, but about showing solidarity, compassion and gratitude, in addition to using the power of music as a tool to become better people,” he said in a statement.
The 2020 Latin GRAMMYs will air on Univision on Thursday, Nov. 19, at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. CT). The broadcast will also air on TNT (cable) at 7 p.m. (MEX)/8 p.m. (COL)/10 p.m. (ARG/CHI), and on Televisa on Channel 5.
