The nominations for the 14th annual Latin GRAMMY Awards were announced September 25 from the Avalon music venue in Los Angeles. Broadcast Music, Inc. congratulates the nominees for Latin music’s biggest night, taking place in Las Vegas on November 21, with the broadcast airing live on Univision.

Carlos Vives, who recently spoke to BMI for MusicWorld Online, received five nods, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Volví a Nacer,” and Album of the Year for Corazón Profundo, which, upon its release in April, represented a triumphant comeback for the Colombian artist who had been out of the spotlight for almost a decade.

Nine-time GRAMMY winner Natalie Cole is celebrating three nominations for her Spanish album, En Español, including Album of the Year and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Cole was also recognized for her duet with Juan Luis Guerra, “Bachata Rosa,” off the same album. “I’m so very proud that this record has been accepted in this way,” said Cole reacting to the news. “With these nominations alone we have made history. I hope this is the kind of inspiration that will give other artists the courage to step out and follow their creative dreams.”
