Happy Monday morning.

Last Friday, we went to bed exhausted but happy to have closed the first day of production of BELatina’s new project, BELatina TV. We have so much to tell you; we don’t know where to start!

However, we will try to focus and tell you the most important news of the weekend.

From the impact of Hurricane Ida in Louisiana to the 20th anniversary of Shakira’s “Whenever, Whenever,” here’s what you need to know to start your week.

BELatina is launching a national TV show, and we cannot be more excited!

Last Friday was our first day of production of BELatina TV, a national TV show that will take the Latina experience to a whole new level. Although we wish we could give you more details, we leave you with a sneak-peek as a gift. Stay Tuned!

Hurricane Ida devastates Louisiana

Hurricane Ida’s passage through Louisiana left more than a million people without power as it battered the state. The strong Category 4 storm made landfall around noon Sunday with winds of up to 150 miles per hour and is considered one of the strongest storms in the last 150 years.

Chef José Andrés was on the ground in New Orleans

Chef José Andrés of World Central Kitchen went to New Orleans with his relief team and set up three kitchens to feed people affected by the tropical storm.

Shakira celebrated 20 years of “Whenever, Wherever”

It seems like it was only yesterday when Shakira was delighting English-speaking audiences by swaying her hips to the tune of “Whenever, Wherever.” On August 28th, the Colombian singer celebrated 20 years of a hit that opened the doors to the international market with her album Laundry Service.
