grammysThe Latin Grammys, which were set to announce nominees for their 2017 edition early Wednesday morning, have suspended their announcement until further notice following a magnitude 7.1 earthquake in Central Mexico on Tuesday.

“As an outgrowth of the terrible and tragic recent natural disasters affecting Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Houston, and Florida, the homes to many Hispanic communities, The Latin Recording Academy is postponing the announcement for the 18th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards® nominations announcement to a later date. At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by these catastrophic events and ones that may come,” Latin Recording Academy president and CEO Gabriel Abaroa said in a statement on Tuesday.

The deadly and powerful quake reverberated all the way to Mexico City and at least 27 buildings collapsed in the capital.
