Mana Crowned Latin Grammy’s Person of the Year

LAS VEGAS – Mexican rock band Mana was crowned Wednesday as Latin Grammy’s Person of the Year, making it the first group to receive the award.

The Latin Recording Academy honored Mana’s legacy at a star-studded night with many musicians performing covers of the band on the eve of the Latin Grammy Awards to be held in Las Vegas.

Mana made a modest acceptance of the honor in statements to EFE from the red carpet.

“I think you always have to be humble even with this prize. For example, I have Grammys, and it’s not that I despise them, but you have to keep your feet firmly on the ground,” said vocalist Fher Olvera.

The winners of six Latin Grammys and four Grammys have also been hailed for their important philanthropic work, especially through their foundation Selva Negra.

Even though the night was meant for Mana to enjoy performances of other fellow musicians, the band closed the night with renditions of “Labios compartidos” (Shared Lips) and “Clavado en un bar” (Stuck in a Bar).

The Latin Grammy’s Person of the Year award, which recognizes the artistic and humanitarian achievements of Latin music figures, has in the past given to artists such as Marc Anthony, Miguel Bose, Shakira, Alejandro Sanz, Gloria Estefan and Juan Gabriel.
