And, Grammy-winning, two-time ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Claudia Brant will join Loren Medina, owner of Guerrera Marketing & PR, for a discussion about Brant’s life and career in music. The conversations can be streamed here on July 9. 

Latin music – your music – is some of the most popular music in the world,” said Paul Williams, ASCAP chairman of the board and president, in a message via YouTube. “That’s because its rhythms, passion, honesty and deep love for both tradition and transcending borders speaks to all of us – no matter what language we speak.”
