On the eve of the 23rd annual BMI Latin Music Awards, multi-platinum superstar Gloria Trevi sat down with BMI Vice President of Latin Music, Delia Orjuela, for a candid, emotional discussion about the singer/songwriter’s life, her music, her inspiration and being honored with the prestigious BMI President’s Award.
The world over knows Trevi’s voice from favorites like “Me Siento Tan Sola,” “Hoy No Voy a Gritar” and “Doctor Psiquiatra,” but many may not realize she is the songwriter behind these and countless other iconic hits. “To receive this recognition from BMI is just so magical for me,” Trevi tells Orjuela. “I never would have imagined I’d receive major recognition as a songwriter.” In this exclusive video, Trevi expounds on the music and experiences that have touched and influenced her own work, along with her love of storytelling through her impactful songs. “When I’m performing,” she tells Orjuela, “people connect with my songs. We really identify with each other, because these songs came from my soul’s heart.”
