San Antonio, TX — The Latin Recording Academy announced the nominations for the 23rd annual Latin GRAMMY Awards on Tuesday (Sept. 20), and teen singing sensation Isabel Marie received her first-ever nomination in the Best Tejano Album category for her latest release, Una Ilusión.
“Can’t believe this, still hasn’t sinked in yet,” commented Isabel Marie. “I am thankful to my family for all their support, to Carlos Alvarez who produced the project, and the entire team who worked, recorded, and mixed the project.”
Produced by Carlos Alvarez (A&R Executive / Record Producer), Una Ilusión included a solid production team including GRAMMY winner Jorge “El Güero” Hernandez, Danny Zapata, Mario “O” Ortiz, Eddie Perez, Fausto Juarez, and Manuel Vargas. The album included original compositions from established hit writers such as Salvador Aponte, Juan Treviño, Humberto Ramon, and Juan Manuel Gonzalez.
“We Already got our flights and hotel for the awards. Looking forward to celebrating with all the fellow nominees,” added Isabel Marie.
The 19-year-old award-winning singer announced her departure in 2021 from Q Productions after five years and four successful albums. Isabel Marie won Best New Female Artist at the Tejano Music Awards in 2017 after the success of her debut album. She added Top Female Artist at the My Tejano Awards in 2019. She is a star that will only grow brighter with each new album release and accrue more accolades in the future.
