Alejandro Fernández was honored with the Icon Award during the sixth edition of the Latin American Music Awards on Thursday (April 15). While Fernández was not there physically to accept the special award because he has tested positive for COVID-19, he sent his fans a message of gratitude.
"I really wanted to be there but as we've learned by this moment, sometimes our dreams don't come true," Fernández said.
"I have COVID-19 and feel asymptomatic. It's for everyone's safety that I'm not there. I want to take this time to thank my family, team, label and all my fans. I dedicate this award to migrants who have been separated at the border. All families deserve to be together," he concluded.
