Ricky Martin to Present Rita Moreno with PEOPLE Lifetime Achievement Award

PEOPLE reports that international singing star Ricky Martin will present Rita Moreno with People En Español's lifetime achievement award in the arts this May. The 82-year-old Broadway vet, well known for her Oscar-winning performance in West Side Story, has had a career spanning 60 years.

"Rita Moreno is part of our history at People En Español," says the magazine's editor, Armando Correa. "This year we dedicated our '50 Most Beautiful' issue to a new generation of entertainers, a generation that would not be where it is today had it not been for all the barriers that Rita Moreno had broken down in her own stellar, six-decade long career."

People En Espanol's "50 Most Beautiful" issue, featuring Moreno, will hit newstands on May 2.
