Following the 7.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico on Tuesday (Sept. 19) and updated reports regarding Hurricane Maria, the Latin Recording Academy has announced that the revealing of 18th Latin GRAMMY nominations, originally scheduled for Sept. 20, has been postponed.

“As an outgrowth of the terrible and tragic recent natural disasters affecting Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Houston, and Florida, the homes to many Hispanic communities, the Latin Recording Academy is postponing the announcement of the 2017 Latin GRAMMY nominations to a later date,” said Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President/CEO of the Latin Recording Academy.

“At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by these catastrophic events and ones that may come.”
