MIAMI, FL — The city of Miami should be the natural venue for the Latin Grammys, assured award-winning artists Gloria and Emilio Estefan and the mayor of Miami-Dade, Daniella Levine Cava, in a presentation of an initiative to once again host the musical event.
The artists and executives were invited by gallery owner and collector Gary Nader, also a member of the Latin Grammy committee, to present the initiative at the Gary Nader Art Centre.
Manuel Abud, CEO of the Latin Recording Academy, said he would “love” the awards to be held in Miami. However, he clarified that the decision does not depend on him. “Hopefully we can do it,” he said.
“Miami represents many communities, and the Latin Grammys are a great three-hour commercial that the entire world sees. We want to show this privileged city where we live,” affirmed musician and producer Emilio Estefan.
For her part, Daniella Levine Cava, mayor of Miami-Dade County, described the event as “very special for the community.”
“It would be divine to have it in Miami,” she said.

The ceremony spent its first few years being held in Los Angeles and in 2003 took place in Miami. The ceremony had also been held once in New York City and Houston.
