Alejandro Sanz Received An Outpouring Of Love And Appreciation After His Speech At The Latin Grammys

After being honored as the Latin Grammy’s Person of the Year, many celebrities showed their love toward singer and musician Alejandro Sanz. But the one celebrity who proved she was the biggest Sanz fan was Camila Cabello, and she made sure to explain why his music means so much to her.

Recently at Los 40 Music Awards, Cabello had a major fan girl moment as she gave a shout out to two special people in the crowd.


The look on her face says it all.

Her excitement only grew stronger as one of those special people, Alejandro Sanz, joined her on stage and complimented her.


I would’ve probably reacted the same exact way.

Cabello then had the opportunity to attend and perform at the Person of the Year Ceremony, honoring Sanz. But she couldn’t attend such a momentous occasion on her own.


Cabello had to bring her mom and dad to the event, insisting on even flying her dad out to not miss such a huge moment since they all love his music so much.

After the ceremony Cabello shared personal details on her Instagram about the emotional connection she’s always had with Sanz.

"Que digan por televisión que hay suelto un corazón, que no es igual, que es peligroso…que es distinto……" Alejandro, my parents have danced and cried and fallen in love to your songs since I was a little girl… growing up, they would play your songs on repeat and I would sing the words and melodies about heartache and love and loss and friendship even when I was in 1st grade and the most intense thing was that the boy I liked took my crayons…. . As I got older and I realized what it means to fall in love, to be heartbroken, to feel everything, the more I've made my way through this thing, this beautiful chaos called life… the richer your music becomes. It's like reading your favorite book in different parts of your life and every time you feel something different, it teaches you something new … through your art you've inspired me to love fearlessly, to live intensely, and to have the courage stand with your soul naked in a crowded room….. Ayer sentía que estaba soñando con los ojos abiertos, thank you for your magic ?? #alejandrosanz #personoftheyear #latingrammys

All of this explains her major fan girling, and it’s pretty adorable.?

But Cabello wasn’t the only person who showed her love and appreciation for Sanz. After dedicating his award to the Dreamers, the singer was greeted with an outpouring of affection from fans .


As part of this dedication, Sanz even had a group of Dreamers join him on stage to perform his hit song “Corazón Partío.” It was such a moving moment.

And it really stole people’s hearts.




So many people on the internet expressed their appreciation for Sanz, as he recognized and supported all of the Dreamers whose futures in the U.S. are at risk.

In response, Sanz thanked everyone who took part in celebrating him.


“Music is the rapid heartbeat of emotion and yesterday mi heart was outside of me. Thanks to every person yesterday who made me dream one more time,” he tweeted.

And he reminded us all why dreams matter.


❤️ Thank you, Alejandro Sanz.

These Artists Used Their Platform At The Latin Grammys To Send A Powerful Message To Puerto Rico

The 2017 Latin Grammys were more than just music and entertainment this year, as artists used their platform to send a message about Puerto Rico. Here are some of the award recipients who showed their love for the people of Puerto Rico throughout the night.

Lin-Manuel Miranda used his acceptance speech after winning a special President’s Merit Award to shed light on Puerto Rico and highlight the significance of collaboration between Latinos.


Miranda came prepared, with his speech written out on paper, and delivered every single word with tremendous passion. Each time Miranda thanked a friend, family member or colleague, he followed it with “no one gets here alone,” serving as a reminder that united we rise higher. Miranda also used his time to discuss the Unity March for Puerto Rico, happening Nov. 19. He and thousands of others will march in solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico to urge the White House and Congress to serve those U.S. citizens. After chanting “Puerto Rico” eight times in a row, the entire audience responded with a roar of applause.

Another passionate ode to Puerto Rico came from Puerto Rican rapper, Residente, who clarified that the island does not need to rise again.

He opened his performance with the message: “Puerto Rico no se levanta, porque Puerto Rico siempre ha estado de pie.” Puerto Rico will not rise, because Puerto Rico has always been standing.

Throughout his performance, Residente described the beauty and strength of Puerto Rican people, emphasizing the endurance and perseverance they all posses.

Puerto Rican musicians who joined Residente at the Latin Grammys also made sure to represent their country and their people. Here’s what they had to say:

Musician Jerry Medina says that despite losing all of his belongings in Puerto Rico, one thing he hasn’t lost is his hope, courage and pride. He knows Puerto Rico will never be the same after Hurricane Maria, but he also knows that the people of Puerto Rico are fighters.



Other musicians from Residente’s group expressed their love for the rapper’s music, hoping that their performance at the Latin Grammys helps raise awareness for the people of Puerto Rico.

Of course, the big winner of the night, Luis Fonsi and his smash hit “Despacito,” was also devoted to the people of Puerto Rico.


Fonsi posted on Instagram the following message: “A night I will never forget. I dedicate this to my Puerto Rico. Thank you @daddyyankee for being part of this journey. Thank you @erikaender, @andrestorrest, #MauricioRengifo @latingrammys ??”
