Are Most Latino Artists Supporting The Obama Campaign?

By September 17, 2012

Follow me on:

With the presidential election on fire, various Latin music artists have come forward to express their political preferences. For what I have seen in the news, it looks to me like the big majority of Latin music stars are supporting Barack Obama and his campaign. Some of the most outspoken supporters of the President include artists such as Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin and Los Tigres del Norte.

Latin Pop and Salsa singer Marc Anthony is one of the most active stars working on behalf of the President's re-election. He recently sung the National Anthem at the 2012 Democratic National Convention and has been involved with the initiatives of the President's Hispanic network. Last month, he also opened an Obama office in Miami's Little Havana.

Since the moment President Obama declared his support for same-sex marriage, Latin music superstar Ricky Martin has become one of the most notorious supporters of the Obama campaign. Similarly, the legendary Mexican music band Los Tigres del Norte has backed the Obama campaign stating they are confident about the President's commitment to "honor the things he promised to Latinos." Apart from these stars, other well-known Latino celebrities such as the popular Cuban-American talk show host Cristina Saralegui and the actress Eva Longoria have also joined the Obama campaign.

Although these artists are just a tiny fraction of the numerous Latin music stars out there, I have not heard anyone from the Latin music industry publicly supporting Mitt Romney. That said, are most Latino artists supporting the Obama campaign? Apparently the answer to that question is yes.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and all. But imagine if you added some great visuals
or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could
definitely be one of the very best in its field.

Very good blog!
