2010 Latin GRAMMY® Nominee to Perform National Anthem & Special Tribute
hosted by:

Known for delighting audiences around the world, Latin music's hottest new singer-songwriter Prince Royce will kick off the nation’s premier Hispanic Heritage Month Event by performing the national anthem and a special musical tribute at CHCI’s 34th Annual Awards Gala.

The 22-year-old musical sensation has created his own genre by blending the Dominican Republic bachata sound with contemporary pop, rhythm, and blues. Winner of four 2011 Billboard Latin Music Awards and three 2011 Premio Lo Nuestro Awards, Prince Royce’s rendition of “Stand by Me” became the first bachata song to be played on English-language pop radio stations in the U.S. His self-titled debut album, “Prince Royce,” became a mainstream success as it climbed to the top of the music charts. In April 2011, it became the number album one in the country, an extraordinary achievement for an emerging Latin artist. Recently Prince Royce inked a deal with Atlantic Records and Top Stop Music to jointly release his next albums in both English and Spanish.

At the 34th Annual Awards Gala on September 14, Prince Royce will charm and entertain nearly 3,000 Latino leaders, influencers, and supporters at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Don’t miss the chance to see this award-winning performer.

CHCI’s Annual Awards Gala is the signature event in CHCI’s Hispanic Heritage Month Events that include the Public Policy Conference and Reyes of Comedy. This year’s theme is Keeping the Promise: Unity, Strength, Leadership. The gala will recognize CHCI’s highest honors and celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of Latino leaders who “keep the promise” to their communities through their extraordinary efforts. All events support CHCI’s educational attainment and leadership development programs.

Keeping the Promise is a five-year campaign to raise $43 million to strengthen and expand the reach and scope of our high school college readiness program, annual scholarships and other college attainment efforts, and professional development programs, including internships and fellowships.

Our programs draw from a national group of young Latinos and provide the financial support, resources, and direct work experience on Capitol Hill to develop a pipeline of highly talented young Latino Leaders.
