He said “While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences that I’d ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second. Trying to help her brother with his battle against cancer. If she hadn’t taken all that on, so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me. So sweetheart thank you, to my daughters Amada and Esmeralda, I love you. And if I may, I would like to dedicate this to the memory of her brother, Juan Carlos Mendes.” His speech was met with roaring applause from the crowd of many well known faces in the entertainment industry.
