Child has composed songs for artists like Bon Jovi, Selena, Aerosmith, Ricky Martin and Cher, among many others, while Perez has created numbers for such singers as Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Jose Feliciano, Julio Iglesias, Cristian Castro, Christina Aguilera, Luis Fonsi and Luis Miguel.

The six artists incorporated into the LSHOF will be honoured with the La Muse prize at the gala to be held April 23 at the New World Center de Miami Beach.
