Billboard Latin Women in Music 2023: Stars on the Red Carpet

Before kicking off the first edition of the Billboard Latin Women in Music gala in Miami on May 6, stars such as Thalia, Evaluna, Emilia and Maria Becerra, among many others, strutted the red carpet. See the photos here.

Hosted by Ivy Queen and Jacqueline Bracamontes, the event is the first of its kind for Latin music. Mujeres Latinas en la Música, held at the Watsco Center, celebrates Latin female artists, executives and creatives who are proactively working for positive change, inclusion and gender parity in the music industry.  

Shakira will receive the first-ever Woman of the Year award. Other honorees include Ana Gabriel, who will receive the Living Legend Award; Emilia, who will receive the Rising Star Award; Maria Becerra, who will receive the Visionary Award; Evaluna, who will receive the Tradition and Future Award; Goyo, who will receive the Agent of Change Award, and Thalia, who will receive the Global Powerhouse Award. 

Presenters throughout the show include Ludmilla, JP Saxe, Guaynaa, Lele Pons, Ha*Ash, Greeicy, Elena Rose and Nicole Zignago, to name a few.  

The inaugural Latin Women in Music event was announced earlier this year as an expansion of Billboard’s Women in Music franchise. Billboard and Telemundo aim to further elevate Latin music globally and celebrate the women who have made a concrete impact on Latin music through their artistic achievements, or through tangible, noteworthy actions that have brought measurable recognition and opportunity to women, affecting positive change to the industry as a whole. 

Watch Mujeres Latinas en la Música on Sunday, May 7 at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on Telemundo and Peacock.
