Support for Cuba and its citizens took center stage at the 18th annual Premios Juventud on Thursday night (July 22), where Pitbull, Camila Cabello and Emilio Estefan delivered a message of hope and solidarity.
"Let me tell you that the biggest freedom we have is music," Pitbull said. "Thanks to music, we have this movement called 'Patria y Vida.' I want to thank Gente de Zona and Yotuel and everyone who is part of that song and part of this very real revolution. Freedom isn't free but it's priceless. More than anything, we're here for the people of Cuba and to support them and to tell the White House to wake up because we need them right now to support liberty."
A powerful performance by Joncien, Lena, Malena Burke and Yailenys Pérez followed Pitbull and Estefan's impassioned speeches, where they too called for freedom. Then, Gente de Zona and Yotuel took the stage to perform "Patria Y Vida," an anthem that is fueling the Cuban revolution.
