Becky G will be honored with the Extraordinary Evolution award during the fifth edition of the Latin American Music Awards, Telemundo has announced. The Mexican-American singer will also perform at the 2019 edition of the show.
The Extraordinary Evolution award recognizes the success of a young performer who has demonstrated change and accelerated growth as an artist to reach the pinnacle of success in a short period of time. Last year, Colombian singer Maluma was the first recipient.
The 22 year-old singer’s achievements include two No. 1 hits on Billboard‘s Latin Airplay chart (“Mayores” and “Sin Pijama”), a starring role in the movie Power Rangers, and many collaborations with superstars including Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, Maluma, Anitta, Natti Natasha, Bad Bunny and CNCO.
Last year, Becky won two Latin American Music Awards (favorite female artist and favorite urban song for “Mayores”) and received the YouTube’s Diamond Play Button for surpassing 10 million followers on the digital platform.
The Latin American Music Awards will take place on Oct. 17 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California. Tickets for the show are available here.
