A White House event that was scheduled to feature Latin entertainers Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin was postponed after the Navy Yard shootings in Washington, DC on Monday, September 16, which left at least a dozen people dead.
President Barack Obama postponed the Musica Latina event.
A statement from the White House read: "In light of today's tragic events at the Washington Navy Yard and out of respect for the victims and their families, Musica Latina will be postponed to a new date."
The Estefan/Martin event was part of a celebration of Hispanic Heritage month, which runs through October 15.
We are praying for the victims.
