“I worked so hard to secure these interviews,” said Cobo. “It was important to get artists that truly represented the longevity of the Latin music world.”

“Carlos Vives will be participating in the World Cup panel, Alexis y Fido on the Radio Shack panel, oh, oh! and we just confirmed JenCarlos Canela will perform his new song acoustically,” raves Cobo.

The Premios Soberano (formerly known as the Premios Casandra) was the talk of all of Dominican Republic. The awards gave great acknowledgments to the Songwriters, Carlos Vives from Colombia and the Dominican Juan Luis Guerra. They received awards for their humanitarian efforts and contributions to social causes on March 18th.

"We do not serve and take this life to help our neighbor expecting something back," said the Colombian singer, visibly excited to receive the award. "We serve because we have dedication to service, because we are artists and we cannot live happily while our neighbors and those who need us do not do well."

The words of Vives, who in the past served as goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, received one of the few deserved ovations of the ceremony in which, for the first time, the social work of some artists are recognized.
