Gallery owner and art collector Gary Nader, who is on the founding committee of the Latin Grammy Awards, launched an initiative on Wednesday to make Miami the permanent host of the Latin Grammy Awards, which this year, as in 2021, will be held in Las Vegas.
The initiative has the support of artists such as Gloria and Emilio Estefan and the Miami Mayor’s Office, headed by Francis Suárez, according to the organisers of an event that will take place tonight at the Nader gallery-museum in Miami.
The reasons for the request to move from Las Vegas to Miami for the 2023 edition will be presented.
Manuel Abud, executive director of the Miami-based Latin Recording Academy, organiser of the Latin Grammy Awards, is expected to attend.
Nader argues that the Latin Grammys, the most important Latin music event of all, should be held in Miami, the Latin cultural capital of the world, in his words.
The 2022 edition of the Latin Grammy Awards will be held on 17 November at a Las Vegas hotel, with Puerto Rico’s Bad Bunny the clear favourite with 10 nominations.
The 23rd annual Latin Grammy Awards “promises to honour the legacy of Latin music, celebrate its present and welcome its future with open arms, and deliberately promote the next generation of music creators,” according to a statement from the organisation.
