Draco Rosa, Bruno Mars And La Santa Cecilia Come Home With Grammys

It was a great weekend for Latin music, Draco Rosa, Bruno Mars, and La Santa Cecilia all came home with trophies from the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

44-year-old Draco Rosa, who is currently struggling with cancer, took home “Best Pop Latin Album” for his album Vida. This was not a big surprise, the album won “Album Of The Year” at the Latin Grammys and had an amazing list of cameos and guest features that included Juanes, Mana, Ricky Martin, Juan Luis Guerra, Ruben Blades and Shakira.

Another highlight of the night was Bruno Mars. Mars took home his second Grammy, this time it was for “Best Pop Vocal Album” for his album Unorthodox Jukebox. 28-year-old Mars was up for four other awards including “Record Of The Year”, “Song Of The Year”, “Best Pop Solo Performance” and “Best Remixed Recording”, but did not hold out against the strong competition from Daft Punk and Lorde.

Last but not least, Mexican-American band, La Santa Cecilia, walked away with “Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album.” Their album “Treinta Días”, which has recently gained a lot of press, includes tracks about immigration in the United States. In their acceptance speech, the Los Angeles-based band stated, “We dedicate this to the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants that live in this country, that are our parents, brothers, sisters and friends. This is for them, so they feel inspired and continue to work hard.”
