The Latin Recording Academy's President/CEO Gabriel Abaroa Jr. has released a statement on Juan Carlos Calderón, who passed away on November 26, 2012. He was 74.

"Juan Carlos Calderón was a composer, producer, performer, and arranger whose impressive career lasted more than four decades. He collaborated with a wide range of artists and was one of the first musical visionaries to cross Latin music over to mainstream radio in the United States, thus paving the way for many of Latin music’s emerging artists. Among his numerous songs was the international hit 'Eres Tú,' which he composed for the group Mocedades. In 2010, we were honored to present him with The Latin Recording Academy Trustees Award for his contributions to and excellence in the field of recorded music. The world of music has lost one of its most important songwriting pioneers, and our deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends, and all who had the pleasure of working with him."
