Edmonton Alberta will be booming with music industry professionals, fans, and Shai Award nominees come January 25, 2007 and it's up to you to get the awards to the right people, especially up and coming artists who are nominated. Canada is rich with growing artists just waiting to be discovered. Artists like Paul Rivard (pictured right) who was just nominated for Best New Country Artist for his self titled debut and others like hard rockers Manic Drive, and Matt Brouwer, both nominated for several awards this year. Registering to vote today gives you access to help new musicians like these be recognized for their talent.
Hosted by Richard Brown & Janelle, The Shai Awards are Canada's Gospel Music People's Choice Awards where everyone from a Gospel choir to an alternative rock band with a heart for Christ are honoured and in attendance.
