Eva Longoria Set to Host Latino Inaugural Salute at Kennedy Center

Some of Hollywood’s brightest Latino stars are showing Obama their support once again.

Following an election where Latinos showed their growing political influence, Eva Longoria, George Lopez, Mario Lopez and Rita Moreno are among a group of prominent performers who will gather on Jan. 20 for "Latino Inaugural 2013: In Performance at the Kennedy Center." Details of the tribute performance were announced Tuesday.

Longoria, a co-chair of Obama's inauguration festivities, is hosting the event.

The Latino inaugural gathering is driven in part by organizers of The Futuro Fund, which helped mobilize Latino support for the Obama-Biden re-election.

The Kennedy Center is presenting the event free of charge in two of its large theaters.

In November as President Barack Obama won a second term Longoria took to Twitter to express her thoughts on the tight Presidential race against Governor Mitt Romeny.

Actress, producer and chair of the Obama campaign Eva Longoria was ecstatic feeling thrilled that her efforts in getting Latinos to vote paid off in “moving the country forward.”

“Me and my friends celebrating! I'm on tears!” she tweeted.  She followed it with another tweet congratulating the President for his acceptance speech.

“Amazing speech by @BarackObama re-elected for his 2nd term! America is and can be united for the greater good of all Americans!”
