A couple of weeks ago, I selected Bachata star Romeo Santos as the Latin music artist of 2012. This year is just starting and the popular singer has already collected his first big trophy of 2013. Thanks to his hit album Formula Vol. 1, Romeo Santos will receive the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Award at the upcoming ASCAP Latin Music Awards to be held next March 19 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
This is the third time the Bachata superstar is receiving this prestigious award, which proves once again Romeo Santos is not only a talented performer and singer but also an outstanding songwriter. With this trophy, Romeo Santos continues to consolidate his place as one of today's most influential Latin music artists. Before ASCAP, Romeo Santos will be competing for the Best Tropical Latin Album Award at the 2013 Grammy Awards. This year already looks promising for the Bachata sensation artist.
