PREMIOS TEXAS 2009 Award Show - August 13, 2009
Ernan Enrique Jimenez, better known as "Makano", whose hit single ("Te Amo") peaked at the #1 spot on Billboards Top Latin Songs earlier this year was in Austin for the fabulous "PREMIOS TEXAS2009 Desde Austin". The 5th annual show was held before a packed audience at "The Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Center for the Performing Arts" (Austin's premier showplace for the performing arts – truly "The Art and Soul of Austin").
While the awards show was the main reason for Makano being here, he took time out of his busy schedule to thrill the kids with a visit to Children’s Hospital here in Austin. While he was there, he signed autographs and sang to the kids. He spent some time with one particular girl named "Cesy", who has been hospitalized for quite some time. After talking with her for a bit (and getting to know her), he sang his hit Te Amo softly in her ear... and she couldn’t hold back the tears. Cesy then gave him a charm to wear for good luck during his performance at the award show.
Makano was nominated for awards in two categories ("Mejor Artista Hip Hop/Urbano"… against "Eddie Lover", "Tito El Bambino" & "Pitbull" and "Artista Revelacion Del Ano"… against "Los Pikadientes", "Tati" & "Playa Limbo"). Makano was the WINNER in BOTH categories! We know that Cesy’s charm for good luck helped him.
He began his on stage performance by starting up a FordGT which was provided by us here at Colvin Automotive (with quite a roar... to put it mildly). We (the "Colvin Automotive Family") are proud to have been a part of Makano’s "entrance" to his award winning performance, as well as, serving as a "Production Partner" for "PREMIOS TEXAS 2009".
By the way, be sure to watch the entire PREMIOS TEXAS 2009 show on Galavision next Sunday, August 23rd at 7:00pm CST (8:00pm EST). Naturally, just as soon as the show is "aired", we will have clips of it right here on our site.
