Here comes #LATISM16

 Founded in 2009, LATISM is a nonprofit nonpartisan organization dedicated to advancing the social, civic and economic status of the Latino community. This organization has been leading truthfully, uniting digital influencers, as well as encouraging Latinos to pursue education in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). I discovered LATISM in 2010 on Twitter by their notorious hashtag #LATISM and have been blessed ever since by tremendous friendships, learnings and business opportunities. LATISM conference has always impacted me with meaningful connections and helped develop better skills.  This year will be extra special as I will be speaking on a panel, where I will be able to share my journey creating movement online #BeNumberless to empower women…que emoción!!! During this wonderful new opportunity I intend to share acquired knowledge, experiences and challenges to confidently empower others. HIGHLIGHTS LATISM16 kicks-off with the Top Influencer Retreat, selected based on Leadership, Humbleness, Commitment and Passion. Grateful to be part of this inspiring group of influencers since 2012, who are truly outstanding and hard working women we call “hermanas”. Although women are the majority at this retreat, there are some men in the digital space who are part of the chosen, and I am looking forward to meet for the first-time. The day-retreat will unite and inspire us to advance our digital influence and validate our work as “Latinos as Change Agents,” theme of the actual conference.

Llego #TanFacil de CNCO Music!

Llego #TanFacil de CNCO Music!

 Hola amigas!! Today we’re loving the new video from @CNCOmusic! #TanFacil comes to us as the first official video from the five-member group, which was formed as a result of the search for the next great Latino boy band on the first season of Univision’s singing competition show La Banda. The show premiered to 2.6 million viewers on September 13th, 2015, and has quickly proven to be successful in fulfilling its purpose. Thanks in large part to the power of social media and the magical combination de los chicos–the endearingly genuine puertorriqueño Zabdiel De Jesús, the honestly vulnerable ecuatoriano Christopher Vélez, the confident cubano Erick Brian Colón, the tender-hearted mexicano Joel Pimentel, and the charismatic dominicano Richard Camacho–CNCO is becoming the much-needed next great boy band sensation in música latina and will be selling out shows in no time. With the help of an extremely supportive fan base, las #CNCOwners, #Tan Facil immediately rocketed to No. 1 on iTunes following its release as a single in January—a great sign that CNCO is here to stay! The band is now accompanying Ricky Martin, La Banda executive producer and one of the boys’ former judges, on his One World tour, which is currently making its way through South America. CNCO has already captivated our hearts con su hit muy pegajoso and is sure to be a force to be reckoned with. We can’t wait to find out how their career will unfold! What about you? Are you excited to listen to their debut album? We hear it’s going to be produced by el reggaetonero Wisin! Share in the comments below!  ...

Breaking Barriers at #PremioLoNuestro 2016

Breaking Barriers at #PremioLoNuestro 2016

 It’s been 17 years since the first wave of Latin artists took over American pop charts in 1999. Thanks to trailblazing artists like Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, and Jennifer Lopez, the way has been paved for the next round of Latinos to create a new Latin explosion. Now we find ourselves in the midst of a new kind of revolution, one that exceeds borders in a different way than that of 17 years ago. Thanks to the dawn of social media, it’s becoming easier than ever for artists to reach new audiences and form tremendous multi-cultural collaborations that rock the world. As today’s biggest stars of música latina collaborate more and more with viral artists of the Anglo music world—J Balvin + Justin Bieber (“Sorry” Remix), Shakira + Rihanna (“Can’t Remember to Forget You”), Pitbull + Ne-Yo (“Give Me Everything”)—the gap between the Latin and Anglo music industries closes, one song at a time. ¡Qué cool! Evidence of this trend will come to light once again on the night of Univision’s Premio Lo Nuestro 2016. For the first time ever, “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke will be performing on the Premio Lo Nuestro stage. Alongside Pitbull and Joe Perry, the lead guitarist from American rock band Aerosmith, they will form the highly anticipated opening act as they debut the new single “Bad Men.” Web City Girls is honored to return to the Red Carpet at Premio Lo Nuestro and will get to experience this excitement first hand, witnessing super stellar performances like the unprecedented opening act. For the full list of nominees click here. We invite you to engage with us via our social media channels Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Periscope throughout the show, okis! Premio Lo Nuestro airs on February 18th with the pre-show “Noche de Estrellas” at 7PM ET/PT (6 PM central), awards show at 8 PM ET/PT (7PM central). Both will be available for streaming via Univision’s and Univision Now, available on iOS, Android, and web.    ...
