Y los nominados son...
Since being established in 2013, Miami's Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame has honored those performers and composers who represent "the greatest Latin talents from all over the world in every genre."
In 2013, Latin Hall inductees included Julio Iglesias and José Feliciano. And last year, Miami's own Gloria Estefan was la más fabulosa of the 2014 class.
For 2015, 24 musicians have been shortlisted for selection to el Pabellón de La Fama de los Compositores Latinos, from Mexican pop icon Juan Gabriel to Brazilian tropicália legend Caetano Veloso, his countryman Roberto Carlos, Cuba's Pablo Milanes, Panama's Rubén Blades, and Argentina's Diego Torres.
