The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) announced that Bad Bunny will receive the Hispanic Heritage Award for Vision!

The Puerto Rican musician and social activist will receive the award on Oct. 6 via broadcast on PBS stations. "The Hispanic Heritage Foundation is honored to recognize the transcendent impact of Bad Bunny as an artist and as an activist through the Vision Award," said  Jose Antonio Tijerino, the president and CEO of HHF. "Bad Bunny understands his responsibility to serve as a powerful voice for those who need to be heard as well as a source of inspiration for our youth.  He radiates his Latinx and Puerto Rican pride in everything he does from the stage to the community to the entire world."

Bad Bunny is undoubtedly one of the most influential music artists in the world. Aside from having a large global audience, the Latin Grammy winner is a cultural icon, constantly shattering all sorts of barriers and stereotypes. Not to mention, Bad Bunny recently became the first Reggaeton & Trap artist to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. Each of his releases makes Latin music history, with his most recent album, "Las Que No Iban A Salir" debuted #1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, “YHLQMDLG” at #2 and “X 100PRE” at #3. He also has one of the most entries on the overall “Hot 100,” with a total of 24 charting hits.

The Hispanic Heritage Awards were created in 1987 to commemorate the establishment of Hispanic Heritage Month in America. Past Honorees of the Hispanic Heritage Awards include Celia Cruz, Ricky Martin, J Balvin, Zoe Saldana, Oscar de la Renta, Luis Fonsi, and many more.

This year's award ceremony will be in compliance with the current CDC guidelines, so the broadcast will be presented in a unique documentary style, with honoree profiles and special performances filmed in more intimate settings.

More details on special honorees and performers of the 33rd Hispanic Heritage Awards will be revealed in the coming weeks!
