Now in its sophomore year, Miami Beach's Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame has announced its 2014 nominees.

In all, this latest class counts 24 singers-songwriters and composers who represent, in LSHOF members' estimation, "the greatest Latin talents from all over the world in every genre. "

Among the shortlisted: Miami's own Cuban pop queen Gloria Estefan, Spanish nueva canción icon Joan Manuel Serrat, Guatemalan pop-rocker Ricardo Arjona, Panamanian singer and actor Rubén Blades, and Puerto Rican-American salsero Willie Colón.

Ultimately, only a small group will be selected for induction into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame, alongside 2013 honorees like Julio Iglesias and José Feliciano.
