IMN artist Ely Guerra was nominated for two Latin Grammy Awards when nominees were announced earlier today at a press conference attended by national and international media at the Avalon in Hollywood, Calif. Guerra and her band were nominated in the categories of Best Alternative Music Album and Best Recording Package (art direction – Pico Covarrubias) for her record Hombre Invisible, available now on US iTunes.

In a year that recognized a diverse group of music makers across numerous genres, the nominations highlight an eclectic mix of established and emerging performers and creative professionals. The 11th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, set for Nov. 11 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, will be broadcast live on the Univision Network from 8–11 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. Central).

“After 10 years of recognizing the best and brightest in Latin music, the Latin GRAMMY nominations continue to bring together the worldwide Latin music community and spotlight a remarkably varied and wide-ranging group of Latin music makers that reflects emerging talent as well as established artists,” said Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President/CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. “This year, it is especially encouraging to see the highest number of creative professionals to date participating in the awards process and recognizing their peers as The Latin Academy enters its next decade. We look forward to celebrating another year of excellence in recorded Latin music on Nov. 11 in Las Vegas.”

The 11th Latin GRAMMY Awards will be supported on radio via Univision Radio (the official Spanish-language radio network of the Latin GRAMMY Awards), and highlighted on the Internet at www.latingrammy.com and www.latingrammy.univision.com, featuring video interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from today’s nominations announcement.
