Earlier this evening, President Obama addressed the nation about his plan to help fix our immigration system. The plan outlined details about protecting families from being split up due to deportation.

Obama's speech brought hope and joy to many, including Carlos Vives, who dedicated his award for "Best Contemporary Tropica Album" at the 2014 Latin Grammys to Obama. "This one is for Barack Obama," he said in Spanish before exiting the stage.

Latin Grammy host, Eugenio Derbez, also gave recognition to Obama's plan of action. "It was time that Latinos' rights were recognized," he said in Spanish.

"We stopped being the minority a long time ago. Latinos are already a part of this country, everyone! So what better way to celebrate this occasion than with music? Latinos have always used music to cross borders!"
