“Yesterday I sang here to Rubén Blades and I wasn’t that nervous; The first thing I want to say is: yesterday listening to Rubén (Rubén Blades), I realized how beautiful music is, when it is put at the service of social causes, to give a voice to those who have no voice; “Patria y Vida” is a song that talks about that. I cry, because you cannot imagine what we have suffered; As a woman composer, I have had threats of all kinds, they even knocked me down on my social networks, they took away the YouTube video; The song bothered a lot and it only talks about human rights, I have had personal threats with my newborn child, I did not know that we were facing nothing more than music and asking for freedom for those who have no voice, so this award is for those who they think music is that too. “

Beatriz Luengo also recalled women who have put art at the service of freedom of expression, such as the poet Dulce María Loynaz, Gloria Estefan and Celia Cruz.

In the category of “Best Urban Song” at the Latin Grammys, Panamanians Sech, Dímelo Flow and Mista Bombo were also nominated with the song “A Fuego” and performed by the Colombian Farina.
