    Laura Pausini talks Person of the Year

    In a candid interview with Billboard Español, Italian singer-songwriter Laura Pausini shared how she’s feeling just a few days out from being honored as the Latin Recording Academy’s 2023 Person of the Year. She will become the first artist born outside of Latin America or Spain to receive the accolade. On Nov. 15, on the eve of the 24th edition of the Latin Grammys — which for the first time leave the United States to take place in Seville, Spain — Pausini will be celebrated at a gala. “For 30 years I always say that I am the most Mexican, most Argentinian, most Spanish Italian… because I have grown up spending many days of my life with you,” Pausini said. “Maybe not my blood, but my soul, my ideas, my ideals, I have made them grow with yours, and I feel Latin.”
