2. You’ll get to see what artists are on the rise

The Latin artists that we all love such as Daddy Yankee, Reik and Sin Bandera will be performing, but it’s always fun to watch new, up-and-coming talent make their debut. The duo Mauricio and Alejandro Rengifo are Cali y el Dandee, two brothers from Colombia who have made a worldwide impact with their catchy songs – including “Gol,” which was one of the most played during the world cup in 2014 – will now be performing on the stage at Premios Tu Mundo as newer artists. El Mola, Luciana and Sebastian Yatra will also be doing their debut.

3. They’ll be honoring – not only musicians – but a lawyer.

One of Hispanic television’s most recognized faces is Dr. Ana Maria Polo, the judge of Telemundo’s show Caso Cerrado. Polo, who is like the Judge Judy of Hispanic households, will receive the award of “Estrella de Tu Mundo” (Star of your World), upon celebration of her 15 years on television.

4. Mexican bands and philanthropy are being recognized.

The regional Mexican group, Intocable will be given the award for “El Poder de Ti,” due to their philanthropic work throughout the years. The band’s six members are ambassadors of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. They have donated $1 Million dollars for cancer research, have advocated for human rights and immigration rights and recorded a song with singer Ricardo Arjona to bring attention to the amount of Mexicans crossing the border. Seems like they very much deserve the recognition.
