NEW YORK (AP) — Spanish music star Alejandro Sanz has been named 2017 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year.

The academy will honor the 18-time Latin Grammy Award- and three-time Grammy Award-winner on Nov. 15 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, on the eve of the Latin Grammys.
