Miguel and Eva Longoria will be among the honorees at the annual Impact Awards Gala on Friday, Oct. 27, at the Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles. Hosted by Francia Raisa and MJ Acosta-Ruiz, the annual celebration honors the contributions of Latino individuals in creating a more inclusive society. The awards are presented by The National Hispanic Media Coalition.

Miguel will receive the Powerhouse Impact Award. Longoria will receive the Icon Impact Award.


Miguel has had three top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 — Kaleidoscope Dream, Wildheart and War & Leisure — as well as three top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot 100: “Sure Thing,” “Adorn” and J. Cole’s “Power Trip,” on which he was featured.

At the 2013 Grammy Awards, Miguel teamed with Wiz Khalifa to perform “Adorn,” which won best R&B song.

One of Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch of 2023, Longoria directed Flamin’ Hot, which told the story of the Mexican-American janitor who claims to have invented Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Longoria was named by People as one of the “Women Changing the World.”

Longoria is also the co-founder of Latino Victory Fund, a movement that seeks to build power in the Latinx community, and Poderistas, a digital lifestyle community that inspires Latinas to leverage their power.

The Impact Awards Gala is just one part of the NHMC’s mission to spotlight the importance of accurate, fair, and positive representation in media.
