BMI held its 17th annual Latin Music Awards tonight at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Juanes received the BMI President’s Award; Espinoza Paz claimed his third consecutive Songwriter of the Year title; “Te Presumo” earned Song of the Year honors for writer Hussein Barreras and publisher LGA Music Publishing; and Editora Arpa Musical garnered its third consecutive Publisher of the Year win. Hosted by BMI President & CEO Del Bryant and Delia Orjuela, BMI Vice President, Latin Music, the black-tie ceremony also saluted the writers and publishers of the past year’s 50 most-performed Latin songs on U.S. radio and television.

The BMI President’s Award is presented on unique occasions when an individual or group has distinctly and profoundly influenced the entertainment industry. In receiving the BMI President’s Award, Juanes joins a small but elite list of past honorees that includes Emilio and Gloria Estefan, Willie Nelson, Pete Townshend, and 2009 recipient Taylor Swift.

Juanes is redefining superstardom. Award-winning songs including “Fijate Bien,” “Es Por Ti,” “A Dios Le Pido,” “La Camisa Negra,” “Lo Que Me Gusta a Mi,” “Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor,” “Fotografia,” and “Me Enamora” convey poignant emotion that transcends borders. BMI first recognized Juanes’ promise in 2001 with a special certificate of achievement, saluting his contributions to the worldwide success of Latin music. The recipient of 18 Latin Grammy and Grammy awards, Juanes is also a leading humanitarian, and was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time.

The ceremony also featured the presentation of the BMI Foundation’s seventh annual peermusic Latin Scholarship to Samuel Genao in recognition of his original composition “Amor Entre Acordes.” The 22-year-old native of New York City is currently a student at The City College of New York. He will receive a $5,000 scholarship, established by the BMI Foundation and funded by the generosity of Ralph Peer II and the peermusic companies. The scholarship is awarded annually through a competition for original Latin songs and instrumental compositions. The 2010 competition was open to college students between the ages of 16 and 24 currently attending school throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
