Newark, NJ, February 08, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The En Sound Music Awards, one of Gospel's most recognized awards events of its kind, will be heading to the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center in the city of Decatur, GA on July 29, 2012 and promises to be an evening packed with great performances and surprises.
This year, the event will be held for only one day and will honor longtime Gospel music Radio Personality, Big Brother CJ.
Founded in 2006 by independent gospel recording artist and Founder of En Sound Entertainment, Delroy Souden, this award ceremony has created a buzz on all continents and is one of the most talked-about event of its kind in Gospel music. Its purpose is to recognize independent Christian and gospel artists – who are often ignored by other awards shows that cater to major-label artists.
"There's hardly a day that goes by when someone doesn't ask, 'When is the next En Sound Music Awards' or, 'Are you accepting submissions for the next En Sound Music Awards?'" Souden said.
Trophies will be handed out in 16 categories this year in such categories including Male Vocalist of the Year; Female Vocalist of the Year; Song of the Year and Artist of the Year and Song of the Year among others, and performances from Atlanta's own Delra Harris and others. The host of the evening will be announced in the coming weeks.
Requirements for the En Sound Music Awards include but are not limited to artist visibility on the web; Internet/Terrestrial radio; press releases; blogs; interviews; album reviews; television appearances; busy performance schedules etc., and must become a member of the Christian Internet Radio Association (www.1cira.org) before April 30, 2012.
