“Not only in Ukraine, but all over the world, people are suffering. To have the Latino community accept us on this stage is incredible,” Will said as he walked down the red carpet.

The presenters of the event, Jaqueline Bracamontes, Rafael Amaya and Cristián de la Fuente, joined this message: “Music has been present in difficult times, now more than ever it has the power to break down barriers and change our lives”, Bracamontes pointed out.
