Telemundo announced a surprise: Eva Longoria and Daddy Yankee will receive two special prizes during the “Premios Tu Mundo” (Your World Awards).

Eva Longoria will receive the “ALMA de tu Mundo” (SOUL of your World) award from NCLR and Daddy Yankee will receive the “Poder Musical” (Musical Power) award during the live broadcast on August 15 on Telemundo. Aaron Diaz and Gaby Espino will be hosting the award show.

The “ALMA de tu Mundo” award, given jointly by the Nation Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Telemundo, recognizes artists who’ve used their fame and talent to help those who need it in our society and helped create awareness around different philanthropic causes. This is the first time it will be awarded and it will recognize Eva Longoria for dedicating her time to helping guarantee a better future for the Latino community through civic participation, voting, education and supporting small businesses.

NCLR also created the ALMA awards, the only English-language award show that honors Latinos in the entertainment industry and is transmitted nationally. The show will be broadcast September 27 at 10/9 pm Central on MSNBC TV.

Now in its second year, “Premios Tu Mundo” will be awarding its first “Poder Musical,” a prize intended for artists who have revolutionized the music industry with courage, talent and innovative power.
