Leading Ladies of Entertainment, the historic event that takes place during the Latin Grammys week every year since 2017, went digital for the first time this year. In its fourth edition, the Recording Academy honored four Latinas who are all about sharing their creative spirit, empowering others, and breaking barriers in different areas of the entertainment industry.
This year, singers Selena Gómez and Gloria “Goyo” Martínez, journalist María Elena Salinas, and entertainment lawyer Angie Martínez were added to the list of many women who have been highlighted over the years.
All of these women have been key players in their individual fields, and we got to catch up with la Reina del Combo herself, Goyo, who is the lead singer of Afro-Colombian group ChocQuibTown and was highlighted as a leader for her contribution to society and as an advocate who strives to bring forward her Colombian community and origins in her Pacific Coast of Colombia.
“I’m grateful. Besides knowing how honorable and important it is to receive this award for my music, being among women who work behind the scenes as managers or lawyers within the industry makes it even better,” she said on the Pinkafé Podcast. It’s an honor to represent Afro-Latino culture. I’m very proud to be the first Afro-Latina to receive this award.”
The charismatic singer has been carrying the inspiration flag ever since her beginning stages and she will proudly continue to represent her roots for years moving forward.
Congratulations, Goyo! Catch more women’s success stories on every episode of The Pinkafé TV Show.
