J Balvin performs at the 2020 Latin GRAMMY Awards on November 15, 2020 in Miami.

J Balvin took the 2020 Latin Grammy stage on Thursday night (Nov. 19) with a powerful performance of “Rojo.”

The 13-time nominee, who won best urban music album for Colores at the beginning of the night, kicked off his performance with a black-and-white video that highlighted the current global health crisis and social issues in the world.

“My heart is breaking and I pray for the world,” Balvin, wearing an all-white suit, expressed before singing “Rojo” under a large praying-hand statue.

In the midst of his performance, Balvin was joined by a gospel choir and his heart began bleeding.

“Our fears torment us but this is the moment for our bleeding hearts to have meaning again and that we all unite and continue fighting for our dreams and a better future,” he said.
