 The Hispanic Heritage Awards were established in 1987 by President Ronald Reagan and the White House as the official celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, which spans from September 15th to October 15th.   Over the last 25 years, the HHAs have grown into one of the most prestigious awards in the United States, honoring Hispanic excellence, leadership, and accomplishments in the fields of Arts, Education, Leadership, Vision, Business, Sports and Legend. These individuals have inspired, empowered and improved the lives of Hispanics in the United States and the world. 

“To have Carlos Baute be part of our already star-studded production is not only exciting, but inspiring. He is an artist who throughout his artistic career has distinguished himself and most notably his music for its positive and uplifting messages. We couldn’t be more pleased with his participation and support during this year’s Hispanic Heritage,” said Maria-Esmeralda Paguaga, Executive Producer of the HHAs.

Former honorees of the Hispanic Heritage Awards have included prominent Latinos, such as Celia Cruz, Oscar de la Renta, Isabel Allende, Ricky Martin, Placido Domingo, Oscar de la Hoya, Mana, Juan Luis Guerra, Alejandro Sanz, Don Francisco, etc.
