5 Things You Didn’t See on TV at the 2024 Billboard Latin Women in Music Awards

The 2024 Billboard Latin Women in Music event honored eight powerful and admirable mujeres in the industry, including Gloria Estefan, who received the legend award; Ana Bárbara, who received the lifetime achievement award; and La India, who received the pioneer award.

This year’s woman of the year was Karol G — who was unable to attend the awards ceremony because she’s in the European leg of her Mañana Será Bonito tour, but who sent a heartfelt and inspiring message to her fellow colleagues and viewers back home. 

“To the women who have collaborated with me in my music, to those who have participated in my projects, to all the women at home who listen to me and who are also part of all this success,” she said during her pre-filmed acceptance speech. “What a beautiful way to celebrate women, their work, their commitment, their discipline, their dedication, what we are as people. I also want to thank those who are at home and work every day for their dreams. Do not stop believing in yourselves. I believe it’s not just about pursuing a goal but also about making the world more beautiful, more special, [and] that, in the end, the conclusion is to make this women’s movement bigger in the world.”

Camila Cabello, on the other hand, was at the event to receive her global impact award — where she thanked her mother, Sinuhe Estrabao for her admirable strength and ability to comfort her during difficult times. 

“Seeing my parents getting emotional, and seeing things that I’ve been able to do in music but also with people … my interaction with people around the world has been so fulfilling. I’ve just gotten to see so much and feel really thankful that I’ve gotten the opportunity to interact with people,” she told Billboard backstage after receiving her award.

Backstage, Billboard also caught a couple of sweet and fun candid moments that were not shown on TV during the Telemundo broadcast. Check them out below!
