Venezuelan singer/songwriter Carlos Baute and urban-pop artist Joey Montana will perform at the SESAC Latina awards gala in Los Angeles on June 29. The event, which is being held at the Beverly Hills Hotel, will recognize affiliates in categories that include songwriter of the year, publisher of the year and song of the year.
"We are the ally to our affiliates in every aspect of what they do in their career," says J.J. Cheng, associate VP of SESAC Latina. "We recognize songwriters and publishers for their highest radio airplay and this year in particular we are giving a TV performance award."
Also scheduled to attend include Samuel "Samo" Parra of Camila, Enrique Bunbury, Miguel Angel of Banda el Recodo and actress Fernanda Romero. The society will present awards for songs that have received substantial airplay in 2010 that have made it to No. 1 on the Billboard Latin charts.
