Latin Grammys commemorate Celia

Sept. 4, 2003 at 9:38 AM   |   Comments

MIAMI, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Colombian singer-songwriter Juanes, has five new Latin Grammys for his mantle.

His album "Un Dia Normal" has enjoyed a marathon stay on the charts, the New York Daily News said. Juanes, who already had won four Latin Grammys presented before the Miami ceremony, won all of the awards for which he was nominated, including both Song and Record of the Year for "Es Por Ti," and Best Rock Solo Album.

The ceremony included energetic performances from Thalia and Bacilos but also incorporated non-Latin artists. Juanes performed with the hip-hop group the Black Eyed Peas and Brazil's Alexandre Pires sang with "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson.

The two-hour extravaganza opened with a rousing and moving tribute to Celia Cruz, one of the Cuban-American community's most revered figures, who died in July.

It featured a medley of songs made famous by Cruz, performed by singers Marc Anthony, Oscar D'Leon, Olga Tanon, El General, Gloria Estefan and Victor Manuelle and trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.
