Pitbull to receive prestigious honour at the 2012 BMI Latin Awards
Pitbull is set to be given a very special prize at the 2012 BMI Latin Awards later this year.
The 'Go Girl' star has been officially named as this year's recipient of the President's Award, which is the ceremony's top honour, for his continued contributions to Latin music.
He enjoyed a very successful run over the past 12 months and released some of 2011's biggest hits, including 'Give Me Everything' and his collaborative single with Jennifer Lopez on 'On The Floor', and a statement on BMI's website explains the nature of the prize he will receive:
"The BMI President’s Award is presented on unique occasions when an individual songwriter or executive has distinctly and profoundly influenced the entertainment industry. In receiving the BMI President’s Award, Pitbull joins an elite list of past honorees that includes Juanes, Kike Santander, Taylor Swift, Emilio and Gloria Estefan, and Willie Nelson."
The BMI Latin Awards ceremony is set to be held on March 30 in Las Vegas and you can watch the music video for 'International Love' below:
