residenteResidente made history on Tuesday night.

He received the BMI Champion Award at the 25th Annual BMI Latin Awards.

It is the first time in the history of the annual gala that the honor was given to a Latin artist.

The Champion Award recognizes Residente’s musical career and philanthropic efforts. “Outside of being one of Latin music’s most highly decorated award-winners, Residente is a true humanitarian,” said Delia Orjuela, BMI Vice President of Creative, Latin Music in a statement.

The 22-time Latin Grammy winner singer now joins Keith Urban and Congressman Doug Collins, who were both honored with the champion award, in honor to their commitment to support the next generation of songwriters and music makers.
