The 27th annual ASCAP Latin Music Awards is back to San Juan, Puerto Rico, on March 5 in support of the Latin songwriting community.

The multiple-time GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY winning artist will be honored at the 27th Annual ASCAP Latin Music Awards in recognition of the impact of musical genres that help shape the future of American music.

“Proud of his Puerto Rican heritage, Draco Rosa became a driving force in Latin rock and pop,” said ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams. “From his early career as a pop star to his massive success as a songwriter-producer and his reincarnation as an ambitious rock artist, he creates compelling music no matter the style, and no matter the odds. He is a pivotal figure in Latin music, and we are thrilled to present him with the ASCAP Vanguard Award.”
