Legendary Percussionist Sheila E. to Perform at CHCI's 33rd Annual Awards Gala

Hosted by Toyota

Latin Pop Sensation "Pee Wee" to Open Show, Sing National Anthem


Grammy-nominated recording artist and drumming legend Sheila E. featuring the E Family will headline the entertainment at CHCI's 33rd Annual Awards Gala, the hallmark event of Hispanic Heritage Month, on Wednesday, September 15, 2010, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

Sheila E. has been performing for close to four decades and her 1984 single "The Glamorous Life" was nominated for an American Music Award and a Grammy Award.

Former Kumbia Kings member and Latin pop sensation Irving "Pee Wee" Salinas will open the evening's program with a new single before performing the national anthem

Each year, the CHCI Annual Awards Gala launches Hispanic Heritage Month and serves as the unifying event for the Hispanic-American community.  With the theme "Celebrating History, Heritage, and the American Dream," CHCI will present Medallion of Excellence awards to actress Eva Longoria Parker and jazz legend Arturo Sandoval, and the CHCI Chair's Award to Broadway composer Lin-Manuel Miranda. CNN's Soledad O'Brien will serve as the celebrity host.

CHCI would like to thank Hispanic Heritage Month Conference & Gala Planning Committee members Reps. Ben Lujan, Ciro Rodriguez and Lucille Roybal-Allard. 

Proceeds of the Gala benefit CHCI's award-winning leadership development programs. The 33rd Annual Awards Gala is hosted by Toyota.  The Premier sponsor is Comcast and Millennium sponsors include Anheuser-Busch Companies, Lilly USA, Lockheed Martin, and Univision.
