Jose's Grammy Awards

The awards Jose Feliciano has received over the years are a testament not only to his talent as a musician and singer but to his generosity as human being. However, to show all of his awards would take an entire web site. He has received virtually hundreds of awards, honorary certificates and expressions of thanks for his charitable work. In this section we will highlight some of Jose’s more famous awards.

Jose Feliciano has received a total of eight Grammy Awards thus far in his career; two in English and six in Spanish. He has won seventeen nominations over the years, an accomplishment that he treasures dearly, for the Grammy, awarded through NARAS, The National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences, is the music industry’s own recognized standard for greatness among its participants.

The Billboard Magazine Lifetime Achievement Award

Billboard Magazine Lifetime Achievement Award

Billboard Magazine has long been recognized as THE Music Industry Magazine by which all others are compared. Their charting of major releases in the various record markets remains a primary source that the industry looks to in tracking the progress of a record release.

In 1993, Billboard established a special award for Lifetime Achievement, “El Premio Billboard”, which recognizes those artists who have made invaluable contributions to the Latin music industry. Recipients include Placido Domingo, Tito Puente and Emilio Estefan.

On May 1st, 1996, Billboard Magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award, El Premio Billboard, was given to Jose Feliciano. It has become an important addition to the many prestigious awards he has received worldwide.

The Helen Keller Achievement Award

The American Foundation for the Blind was founded in 1921 to ensure that people who are blind or visually impaired achieve equality of access and opportunity in their lives. Helen Keller joined their crusade in 1924 and was their spokesperson and good-will ambassador for over forty years, until her death in 1968.

The Helen Keller Achievement Awards were established by AFB in 1994 to acknowledge her extraordinary efforts and promote the notable achievements of individuals and organizations that have improved the quality of life for people who are blind or visually impaired, and all people who are disabled.

In honor of the AFB’s 10th Anniversary Gala in New York City, Jose Feliciano was presented what he considers to be as important an accomplishment as any of his accolades, the 2004 Helen Keller Personal Achievement Award. Given to him as a testament to his determination and drive to become the very best he could be, Jose has shown the world his great ability, not only his disability, and for this recognition, we are most proud.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

Jose Hollywood Star Ceremony

One of the most honored awards that could be bestowed upon an artist in the United States is embodied in the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame. Over the years, people from all corners of the globe come to California, in part, to see the names of the many celebrities whose stars are imbedded in the sidewalks along Hollywood Blvd. and Vine. They have, in themselves, become a symbol of glamour, honor and celebrity — and to be fortunate to have one with your name on it — the pinnacle of achievement.

On December 1, 1987, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce unveiled their 1861st star, honoring Jose Feliciano, located at 6541 Hollywood Blvd. Unlike many others, this award stands out as an outward symbol of success, one that speaks to the world of both public and peer appreciation.
