RICHARDSON, TX -- It's Hispanic Heritage month, a time to celebrate all the culture and contributions Latinos have made to the United States. An argument can certainly be made, that nothing speaks to the Latin culture more than its music.

"It’s important for our culture. You know expand and grow the Latin Hispanic community on tv,” says YouTuber Mexican Rupert.

And that’s what the Latin Grammy Acoustic Sessions are all about.

One of the biggest stars to walk the red carpet Wednesday night was Gloria Trevi, who is sometimes called the "Madonna of Mexico."

She made her debut in 90's and is still an outspoken music icon in the Mexican and Latin American community.

"I think she's done amazing things to still have a career 20 years later and still be relevant in today's time of social media and everything that's out there. That's extremely admirable and something to be very proud of. So this is a very special moment,” says Nora Sandoval.

"For me, it's incredible to represent the Mexican community, the Latin community, here in Dallas,” says Gloria Trevi.

During the session, the songstress performed hits that appealed to every part of Latin America, proving the theme of the night that music is extremely important in the Latin community.
