The OutMusic Awards recognizes achievements by LGBT recording artists and this year, I have been nominated for 3 awards! The nominations, announced in LA last December, are for Outstanding Pop Song (New Year), Outstanding Jazz Song(The Back of Your Hand), and Outstanding Video of the Year (Rabbit Hole). The awards were postponed from last year due to an unfortunate situation with one of the major sponsors – but they are BACK ON for May, to be held at Irving Plaza in NYC on May 23. If you are interested in the event, you can purchase tickets at www.outmusicawards.com.
The No Brainer 2011
Speaking of things that are BACK ON, The No Brainer Benefit Concert is coming back this year to Philadelphia. My family and I are excited to be once again organizing this great event that we started a few years back to raise funds and awareness for the National Brain Tumor Society. This year, we are even featuring a 2 hour open bar & food buffet in addition to some great live music!!! Mark down the date: Sunday, June 5 at 2pm, and stay tuned for more details.
