It’s gonna be something especial.

Latin music superstars like Ricky Martin, Luis Fonsi and Diplo will join Gente De Zona, Don Omar, CNCO, Reik, Jesse y Joy, Camila Cabello and Pepe Aguilar for the 2017 iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina Saturday night.

The ceremony will be titled Celebrating Our Heroes, and hosted by Enrique Santos and Telemundo’s Jessica Carrillo at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Telemundo will air the event live as a four-hour special starting at 8 p.m.

The theme is disaster relief, so expect special tributes to first responders and communities impacted by recent weather disasters around the globe.

iHeartMedia will also broadcast the event nationwide across its Spanish-Pop, Tropical, regional Mexican and Spanish Adult Hit radio stations and livestream on iHeartRadio’s Official YouTube.

In addition to bringing the biggest Latin artists to one stage, iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina will feature stories of the first responders who served their local communities during last month’s catastrophic natural disasters in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the Caribbean, and celebrate their resilience.

New this year: Santos will present Martin with the second annual iHeartRadio Premio Corazón Latino award, honoring an individual who exemplifies a big heart through selfless work in enhancing the lives, heritage and future of the Latin community.

Through The Ricky Martin Foundation, the “Livin the Vida Loca” singer is receiving this honor  for his support following Hurricane Maria and his constant work throughout the years with human trafficking.

Tickets are available now to the general public via iheartradio.com/fiesta.
