Los Angeles, September 17, 2019 – International star Becky G will be the recipient of the Extraordinary Evolution Award during the fifth edition of the 2019 “Latin American Music Awards.” The awards show will take place October 17th at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, and will be broadcast live on Telemundo. Tickets to the awards show are on sale via Ticketmaster and the Dolby Theatre box office.

The Mexican American artist, who won two “Latin American Music Awards” in 2018, will be honored for her success as a young performer who has demonstrated change and accelerated growth as an artist, reaching the pinnacle of success in a short period of time. The first Extraordinary Evolution Award was presented to Colombian singer Maluma, last year.

Born for the spotlight, the 22-year-old singer, songwriter and actress, has had an impressive career since 2011, when she gained notoriety by posting her cover song videos, which catapulted her to fame and a clear place among up-and-coming artists.

The twenty-two-year-old international singer’s achievements include two No. 1 hits on the Billboard Latin Airplay Charts (“Mayores” & "Sin Pijama”), a starring role in "Power Rangers", and guest-starring in Fox TV’s Emmy-award-winning “Empire" series.

Last year, she won two Latin American Music Awards, for Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Urban Song (for “Mayores”) and was awarded YouTube’s Diamond Play Button for surpassing 10 million followers on the digital platform. Becky G has toured alongside Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, J Balvin, Fifth Harmony and Jason Derulo, and has recorded collaborations with Pitbull, Daddy Yankee, Maluma, Anitta, Natti Natasha, Bad Bunny and CNCO, among others.

Becky G, who is currently working on her two upcoming albums, one in Spanish and one in English, will also join the star-studded lineup of performers at the Latin AMAs, just announced by Telemundo, which includes celebrities like Ozuna, CNCO, Gente de Zona, Farruko, Wisin & Yandel, Christian Nodal, Zion & Lennox, Beret, Abraham Mateo, Kali Uchis, Emilia Mernes, Sofía Reyes and Lupita Infante.
