Emilio and Gloria Estefan, Latin Grammy CEO Manuel Abud; and Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava were among those summoned by gallerist Gary Nader to make his pitch to bring the Latin Grammys to Miami.
"The city of Miami should be the natural venue for the Latin Grammy Awards," said Emilio and Gloria Estefan, joined by Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
The initiative of artists and executives hopes to once again host the musical awards in the city, following Nader's lead, who is also a member of the Latin Grammy committee.
Abud said he would "love" for the awards to be hosted in Miami, but clarified that the decision is not up to him.
"Hopefully we can do it," Abud said.
"Miami represents many communities, and the Latin Grammys are a big, three-hour commercial that the whole world sees. We want to showcase this privileged city where we live," said Estefan.
Levine Cava described the event as "very special for the community."
"It would be divine to have it in Miami," she said.
The pitch was given at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Miami.
