A well deserved honor!
Earlier this month, The Latin Grammy nominees were announced, and we were pleased to hear that Shakira was nominated for album of the year!
Now, she's getting even MORE Latin Grammy love, and she's being named the 2011 Latin Recording Academy person of the year!
Here's what Shakira had to say about the honor:
"It is truly an honor to be in the company of some of the greatest artists and legends of Latin Music."
And here's what Latin Recording Academy President/CEO Gabriel Abaroa Jr. had to say about it:
"We are honored to pay homage to this dynamic, socially conscious woman whose illustrious career has touched so many people around the world, both musically and personally."
Congratulations, Shakira! We're very proud!
