Hey All!

On April 25th, 2013 at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT, Telemundo will air the Billboard Latin Music Awards 2013 and Jessica Carillo will be one of the hosts! You know I love my musica so I can’t wait to see the show! Leading up to the program the California Milk Processor Board is hosting the “Los Grandes Sueños Empiezan” campaign for the awards to honor the top artists in Latin music.

Most artists nominated have dreamt of being famous singers when they were kids and now they are nominated. It must be a full circle dream come true moment for them. I know it’s also a nerve wracking time for those nominated and they’re probably being super hard on themselves.  Everyone wants to be a winner and you can put yourself down if you don’t get something you want. Don’t be that way! Negativity is one of those moods that tends to be present in today’s society. It’s hard to stay positive and I know there can be many causes for it. One of the most common causes is actually the inability to sleep well, which can result in a bad mood upon waking up! I have experienced this first hand!

So I recommend the artists nominated for the Billboard Latin Music Awards; Drink a glass of milk before going to bed the night before awards show. It may help you be more positive when you wake up for the big day. Its proteins can help you fall asleep, which may lead to you waking up in a better mood and filled with more positivity. It may help you see life with the glass half full even if you don’t win. You have to remember there is always next year and it’s an honor to just be nominated! Look how far you’ve come!

Here I am below having a glass to calm my nerves about the show as I’m nervous for all the nominees. But I’m also having a glass of milk to solute you all for staying positive and for being such amazing Nominees! Cheers to you!


Prior to the big award show I also wanted to give out my own award to one of the nominees!

I am giving out Toma Leche Positive Song Award to a group I feel focuses on the positive and makes me feel postive! I feel that Wisin & Yandel encompasses these qualities as they always make me feel positive when I hear their songs! They also always make fun uplifting songs that make me want to get up and dance! What’s more positive than that right?

Here is their song called “Follow the Leader” with my fellow Boriqua AKA Puerto Rican Jennifer Lopez! I have to give it to a group that makes positive songs that make you want to dance and also showcase my lovely Puerto Rican People!


So tune into Telemundo for the Billboard Latin Music Awards on April 25th at 7pm ET/4pm PT.
