Demi Lovato: Skyscraper & Rascacielo Performance at the NCLR ALMA Awards on NBC
Demi Lovato / ALMA Awards
When teen-star singer/actress Demi Lovato took the stage at the 2011 NCLR ALMA Awards to sing her hit song "Skyscraper" in both the English and Spanish versions ("Rascacielo"), she marked another milestone in her amazing comeback from last year's rehab. NCLR ALMA producer and Desperate Housewives-star Eva Longoria and comedian George Lopez were the hosts for the evening which featured presenters like Jessica Alba, Naya Rivera, Michael Pena, Eva La Rue, Mario Lopez, Benjamin Bratt, and others. As expected social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube were brimming with the latest buzz from the 2011 NCLR ALMA Awards! In addition to all the official and fan pages, and all the Lovato-tribute Twitter profiles, more than four million fans follow Demi Lovato directly at Twitter (@ddlovato), and millions more on Facebook.
The Alma Awards, broadcast primetime on NBC, are a "one-of-a-kind tribute to the spirit of pioneering Latinos in television, film, and music." The nominees from Alma Awards this year included stars like Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Antonio Banderas, Cameron Diaz, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Sofia Vergara, Bruno Mars, Ricky Martin, Pitbull, and others. The NCLR, or National Council on La Raza, is a non-profit advocacy group which is "focused on improving opportunities for Hispanics." It has support from various corporate sponsors like Walmart, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Ford Foundation. Singer/actress Demi Lovato, daughter of a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, is a mix of Mexican, Irish, and Italian.
Demi Lovato at the VMAs
Demi Lovato was nominated, and WON!, in the category of Favorite TV actress - Leading Role in a Comedy for her series "Sonny With a Chance" on the Disney Channel, a show she left to focus on her music career. In this category she was up against Selena Gomez in "Wizards of Waverly Place" (also on the Disney Channel). The Favorite Female Music Artist category features nominees Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Naya Rivera, and Shakira.
The Alma Awards performance of Demi Lovato's song Skyscraper is another feature for the first single from her new album 'Unbroken' which is due to be released in September 2011. Skyscraper debuted at #10 on Billboard's Hot 100. This is the third disc for this Disney and Hollywood Records teen-star actress/singer-songwriter who is a part of the group of young stars like Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and the Jonas Brothers.
Lovato's new album Unbroken features 15 tracks including Skyscraper and a Skyscraper Wizz Dumb Remix. It features collaborations with other pop artists like Dev, Iyaz, Jason Derulo, Missy Elliott, and Timbaland.
Demi Lovato's amazing recent comeback from rehab for eating disorders, self-injury, and her recently diagnosed bipolar disorder, has included the VH1 Do Something Awards performance (introduced by recent bride Kim Kardashian), the VMAs, and an Elle magazine profile on her "new look", among others. With her honesty, intimacy, and openness on social media sites like Twitter, it's even easier for pop music fans to stay in touch with the progression of Demi Lovato's life, music, and career. It should be an amazing comeback, and very inspiring and entertaining for her fans ("lovatics"), who are such a "fan army" that she was recently nominated in the "O" Music Awards.
