    Congrats are in order for a bunch of Latin artists.

    Willy Chirino, César Costa, Carlos do Carmo, Dúo Dinámico, Los Lobos, Valeria Lynch and Ney Matogrosso will be honored with The Latin Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award, while André Midani and Juan Vicente Torrealba are the recipients of the prestigious Trustees Award.

    The Special Awards honorees will be acknowledged at an invitation-only ceremony on Wednesday, November 19, at the Hollywood Theatre at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino as part of the week long 15th Annual Latin Grammy Awards celebration.

    "As we prepare to celebrate our first 15 years, the Latin Grammy Awards not only continue the tradition of recognizing outstanding artists for their career achievements but honor their exemplary contributions to the world of Latin music," said Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President/CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. "It is with great pride that we pay homage to this diverse and exceptional group of honorees along with commemorating the indelible musical heritage they have bestowed upon us and the roads they have paved for the advantage of new generations. They are each truly masters of their genres and we look forward to welcoming them to the roster of iconic artists we have honored before them."

    Lifetime Achievement Awards: This Special Award is presented by vote of The Latin Recording Academy's Board of Trustees to performers who have made creative contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording during their careers.
