A Real Pleasure for Latin Songwriter Martha Cancel

Posted in News on July 8, 2003
Martha Cancel, a prolific bilingual BMI songwriter and music industry veteran, stopped by the New York office recently to pick up her 2003 BMI Latin Award for "Por Tu Placer" (For Your Pleasure), recorded by Frankie Negron and published by Cancel's Dustelli Music. Cancel also collaborated with Negron in 2000 on "Enamorado De Ti," for which she earned a BMI Latin Award in 2001. In addition, she was awarded a 2002 BMI Latin Award for "Quiero," recorded by Jerry Rivera.
