2019 Latin GRAMMY Nominations Are Here!

And it’s that time of year again! The Latin GRAMMY nominations have been announced and we are happy to see over 50 artists and labels distributed by The Orchard on the ballot. This year’s 20th Anniversary event will take place on November 14th in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The award show will be broadcast on Univision starting at 8PM and will certainly pack performances from the most talented leaders in the Latin music sphere.

Casa Limon Music artist, NELLA, is in the running for Best New Artist. NELLA performed at The Orchard a few years ago and we are overjoyed but not surprised that the thoroughly crafted vocalist is a Latin Grammy Nominee. Her voice soars and hits every note with an ease that is absolutely breathtaking. Hailing from the Venezualian island of Margarita, you may recognize her voice from the screenplay Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben) starring Javier Bordem, however Nella’s first official full length album Voy was released this past year.

Congratulations to all those who have been honored with nominations. Find the full list here and those distributed by The Orchard featured below:
