SESAC Latina announced today that acclaimed artist FONSECA, the superstar performer and SESAC-affiliated singer-songwriter, will perform at the SESAC Latina Music Awards 2015 on Wednesday, June 17th, at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.
Fonseca, who will also receive the very important Contemporary Icon Award, the first of its kind given by SESAC Latina, will join previously announced urban music pioneer Nicky Jamand Regional Mexican hit maker Noel Torres at SESAC Latina’s highly anticipated gala to which the industry looks forward annually. The SESAC Latina Music Awards honor the creative talent of SESAC Latina songwriters, publishers and affiliates, including an impressive list of No. 1 charted songs and songs with extraordinary radio rotation.
Since the release of his self-titled album in 2002, Colombian born Fonseca has become one of the most successful and influential recording artists in the world. He has performed in more than 25 countries, released four acclaimed studio albums, and received numerous awards including three Latin Grammys, a Billboard Music Award and a Premio lo Nuestro. He has sold over a million albums, has 1.7 million likes on Facebook and more than 3.43 million followers on Twitter, and his videos on YouTube total to over 100 million views. His latest release is Fonseca Sinfónico DVD, an ambitious symphonic recording performed with 100 musicians from the National Symphony Orchestra of Colombia for which he won a Latin Grammy in 2014 in the category of Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
Last month, Fonseca joined the long list of SESAC Latina chart toppers with his song “Juntos,” co-written with and performed by fellow Colombian superstar Juanes. The song is featured on the Disney film McFarland USA, starring Kevin Costner, and hit No. 1 on the Billboard Latin Airplay and Latin Pop charts in the issue published April 18-23. The song has been No. 1 in Colombia for nine consecutive weeks, No. 1 in Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador and Central America and Top 10 in Spain, Argentina and Chile. This song’s positive message compares life to a path and “an open book,” making it clear from the start that when we walk “Juntos” (together), “there’s nothing that we can’t” accomplish.
