„The Academy has under no circumstances influenced their choices, have usually honored, and highly regarded their elections, even if there are people who do not agree with the effects. Nevertheless, we hear the annoyance and discontent. We invite the leaders of the city community to get associated with the Academy, to get associated with the process, and to get included with conversations that strengthen the Academy. At its core, The Latin Recording Academy belongs to its associates, from all genres, and our doorways are normally open. Alongside one another we can all make it do the job. Let us do it!“
