Shahed Mohseni Zonoozi, the founder and executive director of the InterContinental Music Awards (Los Angeles-based music awards organization), said that the 2020 winners have been announced.
Over the past decade, the organization recognized music talents from different countries and rewarded them by producing high-quality music for them, as well as taking them on the big stages in front of thousands of audiences during multi-cultural live events.
InterContinental Music Awards (ICMA) is committed to support and promote good music and talented musicians, thus, according to the enhancement of the online opportunities for independent musicians, for the next decade, ICMA will focus on providing online accelerator training programs on how independent musicians should promote their music and grow their career using online tools. The program will be instructed by members of the Awards’ judging panel, who are high-profile, active industry professionals with lots of experience in the international market.
This online program will soon be accessible for musicians all around the globe and the 2020 award winners will receive a full scholarship to this program.
This year was an incredible year for the Awards. ICMA received so much outstanding music from remarkably talented people from all around the world who aimed high and were granted the chance to embark on an amazing journey.
Next to that, a brilliant, fresh and persevering talent – Lily Stockwell – captured the attention of the judges. This led to one of the prominent judges offering her the grand opportunity to produce a remix for her track.
InterContinental Music Awards has been fortunate to have been able to collaborate with so many amazing music gurus who are bringing their expertise and experiences from writing and producing for many incredible, talented singers all around the world, including Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Bella Thorn, Westlife, Gloria Estefan, Celine Dion, Ricky Martin, Ray Charles and many Grammy-nominated artists, to producing songs for NBC, Warner Bros., MTV and Fox.
