This past week, San Antonio native Brizzo Torres, whisked away to Miami Beach to partake in the Latin Billboard Awards Week where she was honored as this year’s “Deja Tu Huella” recipient and is the only Musical Artist winner this year. “Deja Tu Huella” is a prestigious award given to 25 people nationally by both Latin pop artist Bad Bunny and Cheetos. This year, Torres was chosen for her philanthropy work with children in New York, Mexico and San Antonio. She will be receiving 25,000.00 to continue her work with Latinx and BIPOC children in the arts.
A word from Brizzo following her trip: “As a Singer and Teacher this was such an incredibly valuable experience and I look forward to sharing all of my takeaways with our young artists. It was so cool to be honored and celebrated in the “Deja Tu Huella” panel at the Billboard Latin Music Week where Icons like Christina Aguilera, Ivy Queen, Maluma, Nicky Jam and the children of Jenni Rivera were also on the panel. Although Bad Bunny was not in attendance his musical impact was flowing throughout this entire week from the panels to the Miami nightlife. Shoutout to the Billboard team for treating me like a Bebesota Queen and I can’t wait for Bad Bunny to see our progress with our kids of The Good Good Collective.”
Her mission is to keep culture alive while amping up Latinx voices through the power of the arts. When she is not on stage or in the studio she dedicates her time to philanthropy. The Good Good Collective is a “For Impact” org led by passionate artists and storytellers who are on a mission to empower underserved Latinx + BIPOC children through free high quality performing arts education. They work to increase creative confidence and boost mental wellness in a safer and inclusive space.
