Watch Kali Uchis Steal the Show and Snag Billboard's Rising Star Award!

June 10
Kali Uchis at 2024 Latin American Music Awards - Press Room

Kali Uchis completely owned the night at this year’s Billboard Latin Women in Music gala.

The Colombian-American sensation brought the house down with a spellbinding, jazzy performance of “Igual Que un Ángel,” accompanied only by a piano and trumpet, and rocked a chic black gown and sleek updo that screamed star power.

Kali Uchis, who took home the Rising Star award, kept her acceptance speech short but sweet, letting her music do most of the talking. Peso Pluma, who appeared via video to present the award, hailed her as a “talented and multifaceted woman,” a nod to her incredible range across R&B, neo-soul, pop, and Latin rhythms. The audience couldn’t help but rise to their feet in a thunderous ovation as Uchis thanked Billboard, her fans, and the big man upstairs for her ever-growing career.

It was a night to remember, confirming Kali Uchis not just as a musician to watch, but a bonafide music industry powerhouse.
