Latin Grammys Person of the Year Honors Dreamers in Moving Tribute

 

The Latin Grammys were last night, and one of the most moving and talked-about tributes of the ceremony happened when singer Alejandro Sanz dedicated his Person of the Year award to Dreamers and DACA recipients.

As Sanz said, “They have lived in this country for so many years, and still they are in an illegal situation. They are the Dreamers, and those kids are our kids, from our community”.

Sanz was then joined on stage by a group of Dreamers wearing shirts saying “we have one dream”. They sang “Corazón partío” (“Broken Heart”), one of his most popular hits, before coming together in an embrace at the end.
