Phil Wickham walked away as the big winner of the night as fans honored his latest release, ‘Hymn of Heaven’ as Album of the Year and Worship Album of the Year and ‘House of the Lord’. as Worship Song of the Year and Song of the Year.

“It’s a special album for me,” Phil said in his acceptance speech. “Every song was just written to preach to my own soul who I am in him and how great Jesus is. It’s amazing that this record does the same for other people too.

The show received a high media footprint, thanks in part to the participation of activist and author Dr. Alveda King, who appeared in person and accepted the Unity Award. She received the award in a special recorded message from her friend, President Donald J. Trump.

“Greetings to you at 10and The annual We Love Christian Music Awards, a special group of people,” President Trump said. “Tonight is very, very special for a different reason. We’re going to do the first Unity award. And he’s a person we all love, we all respect, Dr. Alveda King. It is an honor to be able to speak on his behalf. »

Reflecting on the award, Dr King said she was “honoured” and explained what the music meant to her and to the whole Christian world.

“Whenever I think of Christian music, it’s an opportunity to send Judah first,” she said. “It means singers, dancers and musicians, everyone involved in what we would call the music industry today, comes first, into the battle. And that can often confuse the enemy. God dwells in the praises of his people.

In addition to celebrating the night’s winners, there were 14 live and pre-recorded performances from several nominated artists and special guests, between sets by comedian Jeff Allen.

Kevin McNeese, founder of the awards and president of “New Release Today,” said the purpose of the awards was to showcase Christian music and provide opportunities for new artists.

“The object of this weekend is that we call it our ‘love letter to the industry,'” he said. we live off Christian music awards and, and that’s just our way of giving to artists who don’t usually get Dove awards or K-Love fan awards or necessarily on the radio Half of our artists are independent .

McNeese said being located at Visible Music College meant they “didn’t have to reinvent the wheel every year”, but gave them the opportunity to add more to each event.

“We’re adding a lot of stuff this year, but it’s all been fun,” he said. “Being able to talk about it with the mainstream media is new for us. We have been on many media sites, such as NewsMax and Fox Business Channel.

New artist Cade Thompson, who is currently working on his follow-up project on Red Street Records, performed at the ceremony and expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to preview new music and benefit from the community.

“I’m so grateful to Kevin and the whole team at New Release Today for believing in me and allowing me to be here and also be around some awesome artists. It’s been such a blast “, did he declare.

PROVIDENCE – Artists from five continents have been nominated for this year’s International Portuguese Music Awards (IPMA), including several local artists and some big names like Salvador Sobral, the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.

The nominees were revealed in a web stream hosted by ‘The Voice Portugal’ coach Aurea. The 10th IPMA show honoring artists of Portuguese descent is scheduled for Saturday, April 23 at the Providence Performing Arts Center.

“Like most years, many new names have decided to participate,” said David Saraiva, who co-organizes the International Portuguese Music Awards with José “Zach” Xavier. “It’s great to see the amount of talent there. For the first time ever, there are more nominations from Canada than from the US, so the IPMA is gaining traction there.

There will be 13 prizes up for grabs in categories including Rock, Rap, Fado, Music Video and Best New Talent.

“Some categories are stronger than others, but overall the quality is very high,” Saraiva said. “Fortunately, we have an excellent panel of judges who score the submissions.”

A cash prize of $2,000 and studio time with MDC Music in Toronto will be awarded to the 2022 IPMA ‘New Talent’ winner.

“Our label and management company develop young artists to help them achieve their dreams.” said Manuel Da Costa, president of MDC Media Group. “Helping this year’s winner on their musical journey is something we are very proud to be a part of and we look forward to seeing this year’s promising Luso talent.”

Giuliana Amaral, 20, a Dartmouth resident studying performance at Berklee College of Music in Boston, will compete in the New Talent category.

“I have been attending IPMAs with my family for several years now and thought it would be really cool to have the opportunity to be nominated. And now it has happened. It means my work has been recognized by an organization awesome and I’m really happy about it,” said Amaral, who usually performs rock and hard rock songs in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, New York and at The Whiskey in Los Angeles. .

She hopes the IPMAs will open new doors for her to help her achieve her dream of traveling the world doing what she loves.

“For me, it’s an honor,” she said of her expectations. “Portugal has amazing musicians and I’m very grateful and honored to be part of the [IPMA] listing.”

She will compete with a song she wrote for her grandfather who likes to ride motorcycles, called “MIDNITE Rider”.

“My grandfather, who I call Nene (his real name is Nelson) was more of a father figure to me than a grandfather,” she said. “He raised me all my life. And he’s always there for me no matter what and I’m very grateful to him for that.

K45, the artistic name of Karina Alves, was also nominated in the New Talent category.

“Coming from Portuguese descent with two parents born there, it’s an honor to embrace my heritage as a singer/songwriter at the IPMAs,” said the 19-year-old Stoughton resident and UMass student. Lowell. “This nomination is just a reminder of the support of the Portuguese community within the music industry. It’s truly a blessing to share my music at this event and I can’t wait to perform.

She will perform a song called “Without Me”.

“It was the first song I ever released. I wrote it as an anthem for all the times people would let me down just to come back into my life once they realized how much I was precious as a person,” said K45, who identifies as a Funky/R&B singer but enjoys experimenting in other styles as well.

“I’m thrilled for the IPMAs, not only to perform, but to see all the amazing artists and nominees,” she added.

New Bedford-based BandFaith will take part in the performance “Música Popular” with the song “Saudades de Portugal”

“When we wrote and recorded the song ‘Saudades de Portugal’, we were still heavy in the middle of the pandemic. The song came from a desire and a love (a saudade) for our homeland and a sadness that with the state of our world at the time, we couldn’t just hop on a plane to visit our families and share our homeland and traditions,” says Tiago Goulart.

This will be the band’s 5th IPMA nomination. They were nominated with the songs “Amor Amor”, “Comeback” and “Blue Jeweled Eyes” in 2014 and “Não Quero Trabalhar” in 2015.

“We haven’t won any awards yet and hope he comes back with us this year,” Goulart said. “Being nominated along with other artists from around the world means to us that even as a group of seven with different experiences, likes, dislikes and tastes, we can still combine to create music that people in our community and beyond can appreciate, and of a quality that deserves to be nominated. This is particularly close to our hearts because, like most of our original work, we write our own music and lyrics, perform our own music, and record it all in-house in our keyboardist/vocalist’s studio (Studio 81).

Melo Musik, comprised of Danny Melo of Methuen and Chris Colarullo of Randolph, will compete in the ‘Best Dance Performance’ category with ‘Garota (ft. Alex Ferrari)’.

“We are passionate about music and we create our own. It’s inspiring to know that others appreciate it too and it’s a real honor to be recognized by the IPMAs,” Melo told O Jornal.

Melo Musik, who likes to describe themselves as the “Festa Kings”, is no stranger to IPMAs. In 2017, they were the winners of “Best Dance Song” and “People’s Choice”. A year later, they were nominated in the same categories.

“This year’s track ‘Garota’ is sung by Alex Ferrari from Brazil, best known for his hit ‘Bara Bara Bere Bere’ with 25 million views on YouTube,” Melo said. “We are honored to be nominated and perform again at the IPMA After Party. We always look forward to the performances. IPMAs always provide a high level of production and entertainment.”

The People’s Choice Award, presented by LiUNA, is the only category voted for by the public via the IPMA website. Voting will begin this month. The four artists/bands that receive the most votes become the official nominees, and the one with the most votes will be announced as the winner.

“For the People’s Choice vote, which will be announced this month, we typically get votes from 75 to 80 countries,” Saraiva said. “Without a doubt, IPMA is growing every year.”

Luso-American actress Daniela Ruah — best known for playing NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye on the hit CBS series NCIS: Los Angeles — will co-host the 2022 IPMA show with celebrity personality Ricardo Farias. local television and radio which currently hosts the conference show “De Cá Pra Lá” produced in New Bedford for RTP Açores.

Ruah and Farias will feature a lineup of star-studded artists, including Áurea, Xutos e Pontapés, Paulo Gonzo, Delfins, Calema and Jorge Ferreira.

The show will also air on The Portuguese Channel, Camões TV, Xfinity On Demand and worldwide via RTP International at a later date/time to be announced.

Previously held at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center in New Bedford, this is the first time the show will travel to Rhode Island.

“We are pleased with how ticket sales are going so far,” Saraiva said. “There are still many people who may have heard of IPMA but never experienced it in person. As we are celebrating our 10th anniversary in a new city, a new iconic location , with an amazing lineup of artists, I think the turnout will be great.It’s a memorable way to spend an evening in downtown Providence, celebrate your culture and catch an international TV event.

In addition, for the first time, the After-Party will take place at the same place as the show.

“Anyone interested in attending the After-Party should lock in their tickets as soon as possible as we expect them to sell out,” Saraiva said.

The who’s-who of India’s music industry came together to celebrate music like never before on March 8, 2022. The 14th Annual Malabar Gold & Diamonds Presents Smule Mirchi Music Awards, was an evening of glamorous and powerful performances , etc much more, as it lived up to its slogan “Har Entertainment Mein Mirchi Hai”.

Hosted by Bollywood’s favorite playback singer, Sonu Nigam, and co-hosted by singer-songwriter Neha Bhasin and actor-singer Meiyang Chang, the awards night was a spectacular spectacle with multiple highlights.

Sonu Nigam’s tribute to Indian Nightingale, Late Lata Mangeshkarji, as well as a special tribute to Disco King, Bappi Lahiri, by Meet Bros with Bappi Da’s grandson, Swastik Bansal aka Rego, was the highlight of the evening. Sonu also paid a touching tribute to Shravan Rathod accompanied by his sons Sanjeev and Darshan Rathod.

Speaking to Bombay Times, Sonu said, “I am the only person of my generation who had the chance to sing with Lata ji, so I picked the songs I sang with her.” Shruti Pathak, who was also part of the special tribute performance to the legendary Lata Mangeshkar, sang ‘O Palan Hare’ (‘Lagaan’) and ‘Do Pal Ruka’ (‘Veer Zara’). “It was very moving to be part of this tribute to her. For every singer, Lata Ji was an institution,” she said.

Sonu shared his love for MMA and said, “I’m like Dai Ma from the Mirchi Music Awards. I always make sure that all my support is there with MMA the reward feature taki ek hamesha zinda rahe and hamesha chalta rahe. It’s a credible reward feature and it will always have my support. I always do my best to make things work for MMA.

Neha Bhasin, who also co-hosted the awards night earlier, spoke about her special connection to MMA. She said, “I think MMA is special because it’s the only awards dedicated solely to music of all genres. It’s a pleasure and an honor to be here because it’s my family.

Speaking about the highlights of the award function, Neha said, “The highlight of this year was the tribute to Lata Ji, the award for the legacy of Bappi Da – the most important gems and legends of the music industry who gave us so much to learn. I was very proud of Neeti, Shakti and Mukti performing on their new song. I always thought they were a very talented trio. And another highlight of the awards night is I performed my Punjabi folk song It’s a big deal for me because it’s my independent music which I started in 2013 and it’s like I had come full circle. I stand for independent music and I do it the way I want to do it.

Priya Saraiya who along with Sachin-Jigar and Rekha Bhardwaj won ‘Re-Created Song of the Year’ for song Laadki (Angrezi Medium) said: ‘I am so happy and feel lucky to have had opportunities so incredible in Bollywood. .” She and Sachin accepted the award as Jigar and Rekha Bhardwaj were unable to make it to the awards night.

Bollywood celebrities Taapsee Pannu, Vidya Balan, Karishma Kapoor, Pratik Gandhi, Ila Arun, Sadhana Sargam, Ramesh Sippy, Papon, Anand Ji Bhai, Guneet Monga and Umesh Bist were among those attending the awards.

Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to Dolly Parton at this year’s Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, with a performance of “I Will Always Love You”.

The 39-year-old singer sang the late Whitney Houston’s classic hit in honor of the 76-year-old country music legend, who hosted the ceremony at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Monday night (07.03.22).

Afterwards, Dolly – who received a standing ovation from the crowd – said: “I know Whitney is smiling at us tonight so thank you so much – she would be proud of that.

“I was backstage trying not to make my false eyelashes cry – throwing snot all over the place and tears. But anyway, it was amazing work!”

Kelly revealed on her show last month that she planned to pay tribute to Dolly at the event.

She said at the time, “I love him so much.”

The “Jolene” Dolly singer dedicated the show to the people of Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion of the country.

Opening the ceremony, she said: “I love to laugh, I love to joke and we’re going to have a great time tonight, but I want us to take a serious moment before we start with all of our fun.

“Now I don’t want to be political and I’m not. I’d rather have a kidney stone than do this, but I want us to send our love and hope to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine.

“So why not dedicate this whole show to them and pray for peace in this crazy old world?”

At the event, Miranda Lambert, Carly Pearce and Lainey Wilson were the big winners of the night, taking home two prizes each.

Miranda won the coveted Artist of the Year award and she also won Video of the Year for her and Elle King’s backing on the song “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”.

She told the crowd: “Oh my God, I can’t believe I’m not here to celebrate.

“This is the first time I’ve missed the ACMs in 17 years.

“My heart is a little broken, but I’m happy to be where I am. I’ve been waiting for this for a very, very long time.”

Carly Pearce won Female Artist of the Year and she also won Music Event of the Year for “Never Wanted to Be That Girl” alongside Ashley McBryde.

Lainey Wilson won both Song of the Year for “Things a Man Oughta Know” and New Female Artist of the Year.

Additionally, Chris Stapleton won Male Artist of the Year, The Osborne Brothers won Duo of the Year, and Old Dominion won Group of the Year.

The Academy of Country Music Awards airs on Amazon tonight https://wildtextileworld.com/the-academy-of-country-music-awards-airs-on-amazon-tonight/ Tue, 08 Mar 2022 02:00:02 +0000 https://wildtextileworld.com/the-academy-of-country-music-awards-airs-on-amazon-tonight/ Host Dolly Parton opened the Academy of Country Music Awards Monday night by dedicating the show to the people of Ukraine amid the Russian invasion. “I don’t want to play politics, I’d rather have a kidney stone than do this,” Parton said from the ACM stage at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. “But I want […]]]>

Host Dolly Parton opened the Academy of Country Music Awards Monday night by dedicating the show to the people of Ukraine amid the Russian invasion.

“I don’t want to play politics, I’d rather have a kidney stone than do this,” Parton said from the ACM stage at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. “But I want us to send our love and hope to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. So why don’t we dedicate this whole show to them and pray for peace.

It was the only serious moment in the opening monologue from Parton, who wore a jumpsuit that appeared to be covered in sparkling shards of glass.

“A disco ball just fell on me,” Parton said. “I just hope nothing pierces me.”

Its co-hosts Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett followed with performances celebrating the show’s return to its usual hometown after two years in Nashville. They sang the classic “Viva Las Vegas” by Elvis Presley and “Let’s Go to Vegas” by Faith Hill.

Outside of Parton’s presence, there will be little lore on the show, which has moved from network TV to streaming-only, with no TV commercials on Amazon Prime Video.

The year’s top nominee is Chris Young, whose seven nominations, including album of the year and single of the year, come in part because he earned dual nominations as an artist and producer.

Parton is also set to sing on a night where performances will be central – there are 22, while only eight awards will be given.

The return of Morgan Wallen, if he attends and wins major awards, could be one of the central moments of the evening. Wallen is back as a four-time candidate after being dropped from last year’s ACM ballot after being filmed using a racial slur. It has been absent from other awards shows since, although it has slowly returned to the spotlight.

His nominations include album of the year for “Dangerous: The Double Album,” which was the most popular album across all genres last year. He also earned nominations for Male Artist of the Year and Song of the Year.

Attracted by the ACM’s reputation for having a fun, inviting and inclusive atmosphere, Amazon has sought to go beyond the live sporting events it has previously broadcast to connect this with a large audience of fans from countries that listen to Amazon Music.

The show will have a sporty look, with three stages, aerial spider cameras, non-stop action and lots of graphics.

Prizes will be awarded by segments, rather than split between songs, with a 35-minute non-stop block of performances. A post-show edit of the performances only will also be offered.

Honoring ACM Artist of the Year Luke Bryan also has double performances, including his hit “Buy Dirt” with Jordan Davis and a performance of his ballad “Up.” Other performers include Kane Brown, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Maren Morris, Walker Hayes, Thomas Rhett, Blanco Brown, Brooke Eden, Carly Pearce, Ashley McBryde and BRELAND.

Miranda Lambert has won five nominations, including Artist of the Year, and is now tied with Reba McEntire for her 16th Female Artist of the Year nomination. Walker Hayes, nominated for the first time, also received five nominations, due to Applebee’s viral theme song “Fancy Like”, topping single of the year.

Five-time nominee Chris Stapleton is nominated for Entertainer of the Year, alongside Lambert, Eric Church, Luke Combs and Carrie Underwood.

Along with Morgan, nominees for album of the year include Carly Pearce, Thomas Rhett, Young, Lambert, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall.
