McBride is a Grammy-winning recording artist who has more than 18 million in album sales and six #1 hit songs.

Latin Grammy winner Fonsi came on the music scene in 1998 with a debut album that was a hit on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart and made him a star in Puerto Rico and across Latin America. Seven albums later, Fonsi is an international sensation who has also recorded a duet with Christina Aguilera for her Spanish language album, and with "Spice Girls" Emma Bunton for her album "Free Me." He won a Latin Grammy Award in 2009 for the song of the year, "Aqui Estoy Yo," and has won numerous other awards, including Latin Billboard's Tu Mundo Award. Currently on tour until 2013, Fonsi also performed in Oslo, Norway in 2009 at the Nobel Peace Prize concert honoring winner Barack Obama.
