Washington D.C. [USA], Oct 27 (ANI): Pitbull was honoured with the first-ever 'Latin AMA Dick Clark Achievement Award' at the 2017 Latin American Music Awards.

"For the folks that are helpless right now, I want to motivate them and inspire them to stay strong, to rebuild even stronger," the rapper said during his acceptance speech as reported by People Magazine.

"All the way from Puerto Rico to Cuba, the Keys, Houston, the earthquakes in Mexico, may God bless the souls of those in Las Vegas and to all the fires that are happening right now in Northern California, this is the time you've got to take and really appreciate what life is about. Live life, don't let life live you."

He continued, "And I want you to remember one thing before I leave here, guys don't ever forget that immigrants built the United States of America."
