ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams introduced this year's ASCAP Latin Music Awards, saying "Latin music – your music – is some of the most popular music in the world.

In support of its 2020 Latin Music Awards, ASCAP will present related programming on Thursday, July 9 at its free, ongoing weekly virtual conference for music creators, ASCAP Experience: Home Edition. Alexandra Lioutikoff, President Latin America and US Latin of Universal Music Publishing Group, ASCAP Latin Music Publisher of the Year, will appear in conversation with Billboard's Leila Cobo; and Grammy-winning, two-time ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Claudia Brant will join Loren Medina, owner of Guerrera Marketing & PR, for a discussion about Brant's life and career in music.
