We want to wish the incomparable Juanes a wonderful birthday today! Our fave Colombian musican (and loving dad) is now 41 years old.
In honor of his special day, we’ve listed several reasons why we love the rocker so much. Feel free to add your own reasons below in our comments section.
Happy Birthday, Juanes!
1. He’s a Proud Latino
Hearty congratulations are in order for two Latinos who will soon receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.
Grammy Award-winning musician Arturo Sandoval and Nobel Prize-winning environmental scientist Mario Molina join 14 other honorees who will receive the presidential award, known as the nation’s highest civilian honor.
Other recipients include former president Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey.
In time, undocumented immigrants in Puerto Rico will be able to obtain temporary driver’s licenses.
According to NBC Latino, Alejandro Javier García Padilla signed into law a bill that would allow undocumented immigrants to apply for a license in about a year. Both undocumented immigrants and migrant workers will be able to apply for 6-year drivers licenses.
Latinos don’t receive many top Hollywood honors, and Rita Moreno has an idea why.
According to Fox News Latino, the 81-year-old legendary actress said it’s because Latino actors are not cast in the kind of roles that gather big nominations and awards.
About 38 million people speak Spanish at home, according to a new report by the U.S. Census Bureau. The U.S. Census has released an interactive, online map that pinpoints the array of languages other than English that were spoken in homes across the country in 2011.
Latinos and their use on social media outshine everyone else and their mama. According to a new report by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, a whopping 80 percent of Latinos keep their fingers busy on sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
U.S. Spanish radio has lost one of its most treasured voices. According to Huffington Post Latino Voices, Betty Pino died on Tuesday morning after battling an unknown bacterial infection. Pino, who worked for Univision’s Amor 107.5 FM in Miami, was known by many as the ‘Queen of the Radio.’
In mid-July, Pino was hospitalized and had been placed in an induced coma while doctors tried several different treatments.
We love when Sofia Vergara gives a visual nugget of one of her upcoming projects. The Colombian actress recently uploaded several shots of her upcoming film Chef on her WhoSay account, and in turn we got a juicy glimpse at the set and those involved.
Directed by Jon Favreau, the film centers on an unemployed guy named Casper (also played by Favreau) who pursues his dreams and open up his own food truck while also attempting to reconcile with his estranged family. 41-year-old Vergara plays Casper’s ex-wife.
