Ricky Martin will present Rita Moreno with People En Español's lifetime achievement award in the arts next month.

Moreno, 82, is perhaps best known for her Academy Award-winning role in West Side Story, but her career has spanned 60 years, and she is one of 12 artists in the highly-selective EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) club.

"Rita Moreno is part of our history at People En Español," says the magazine's editor, Armando Correa.

"This year we dedicated our '50 Most Beautiful' issue to a new generation of entertainers, a generation that would not be where it is today had it not been for all the barriers that Rita Moreno had broken down in her own stellar, six-decade long career."

People En Espanol's "50 Most Beautiful" issue, which also features Moreno, will be on newsstands May 2.

Catch all the red-carpet action live from the 2014 Los 50 más bellos event May 12 at 9:30 p.m. on the People En Espanol website. Join the conversation on Twitter @peopleenespanol #50MasBellos.
