Created by Desmond Child and Rudy Pérez, the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame was founded in an effort to honor their fellow world-renowned colleagues for their years of outstanding work in the Latin music industry. The “La Musa Award” design stems from a 1950’s sculpture of Desmond Child’s mother, Cuban poet and songwriter, Elena Casals, who founded the Society of Exiled Cuban Authors and Songwriters.
