Latin Grammy broadcast to include a group of musicians / first responders

By now you must know that the 21st Annual Latin Grammy Awards will be broadcast Thursday, Nov. 19, at 8 pm PST on Univision. 

A cool part of the celebration that you won’t want to miss is the moment when frontline workers will join Latin GRAMMY® and GRAMMY® winner Pitbull for a special performance, in recognition of their courageous efforts and continued support during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The band, made up of current frontline workers and responders, will include Major Frank Fernandez on drums, physician’s assistant Debi Kuiper-Tomas on bass, and Captain Eddy Alarcon and Lieutenant Troy Maness on guitar. The performance will also feature background vocals by Sergeant Liz Bremer, labor and delivery registered nurse Kim Fleurinord, firefighter Adrian Ballard, and registered nurse, firefighter, paramedic and retired U.S. Air Force Major Marlon Ferdinand.

Due to the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards will not have a live audience or a red carpet. The Latin Recording Academy, Univision, and its production teams will adhere to strict safety guidelines and protocols.
