|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, September 9, 2019|
iHeartMedia has announced that Jennifer Lopez will be honored with the fourth annual iHeartRadio Premio Corazon Latino Award at the 2019 iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina on November 2 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. In addition, Pedro Capo, Gente de Zona and Sech will join the lineup of previously announced performers Jennifer Lopez, Daddy Yankee, Ozuna, Jowell & Randy, and Tito El Bambino, among others.
Host Enrique Santos will present Lopez with this year's award, which honors an individual that exemplifies their big heart through their selfless work in enhancing the lives, heritage and future of the Latin community. In addition to her work in film, television, and music, Lopez dedicates her time to several humanitarian causes including the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club, the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, the American Red Cross, DKMS, and the United Nations Foundation.
Lopez was the first national celebrity spokesperson for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and the BC Children's Hospital Foundation (BCCHF) and the first Global Advocate for Girls and Women at the United Nations Foundation, where her role involves mobilizing action to address challenges faced by girls and women around the world. She has also been honored by the Human Rights Campaign with their Ally for Equality Award for her commitment to better the lives of LGBTQ people.
Following Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, Lopez donated $1 million to humanitarian aid for Puerto Rico and launched a humanitarian relief campaign entitled Somos Una Voz, an effort supported by various celebrities to rush supplies to areas affected by Hurricane Maria. Lopez also presented a subsequent concert and telethon for disaster relief, "One Voice: Somos Live!", which raised over $35 million.
"This year, we're truly excited to honor the hardest working woman in showbiz with the iHeartRadio Premio Corazón Latino award," said iHeartLatino Chairman and Chief Creative Officer Enrique Santos. "As a global advocate for children, women and all Latinos, the list of foundations and charities that J. Lo has supported throughout her career is endless and the positive impact that she's had on the entire entertainment industry and so many lives is immeasurable. I can't wait to see the queen dominate our stage this year."
