"AOV Nomination"

(Free-Press-Release.com) January 19, 2011 --

Iyadonna has been nominated to the New Music Seminar Artists on the Verge (AOV) project. AOV will identify the 100 artists most ready to break each year. According to Tom Silverman, New Music Seminar Silverman should know a successful artist when he sees one because he is the founder, chairman and CEO of the record label Tommy Boy Records (established 1981), and he is co-founder of the independent film and television company Tommy Boy Films.

Iyadonna ,who's soaring success, was very happy to hear about this and her label 32 Track Productions is making a major push to make sure she becomes one of the Top 3!
The top 3 artists will be invited to attend the New Music Seminar on Feb 14-16 as their guests and will get to perform on the Tuesday night showcase at The Roxy and then be critiqued by a panel of experts at the Creative Conundrum Movement on Wednesday, February 16th. The winner will be chosen by the audience in live SMS voting. The winner will receive over $50,000 in promotions, services and prizes including the coveted NMS Reflection Award.

Iyadonna ,who is currently closing in on 600 Mediabase/BDS detections with her single "Be Myself", and is set to release the Remix with Fatman Scoop this week, has seen great exposure in the past year! Please spread the word about Iyadonna and her movement to be one of the top 100 Artists on the Verge!!

The New Music Seminar will be held in Los Angeles February 14-16th which is the same week as the Grammys.

**Iyadonna's success is continuing to explode within the music entertainment industry. She is almost done completing her album and now has also released another mixtape! IYA hails from BOSTON, MASS. and reps that to the fullest with raw uncut lyrics and conceptual flow... IYA was born in ROXBURY, only 3 doors down from where Malcolm X once lived. Iya developed her skills not only as an emcee who can write but also as a singer leading her youth choir in church. (doesn't everybody start there?:) By the time she was 11yrs old IYA was entering talent shows and "beating all the boys". Countless artists have had a lot of influence on IYA like Jay Z, MC Lyte, Rah Digga, ED OG and of course Lauryn Hill . In 1999 Iyadonna was introduced to DJ Clinton Sparks and began work on her first two singles "What You Think" and "That's My Crew" released in 2000 on Compound Ent. Both records were a success on the college rap charts and in DJs crates. Iyadonna was proving that she could rhyme, but that’s not all this multi talented artist could do. When Clinton was asked by another DJ / producer named Creativity if he knew anyone who could write an R&B song for his artist Jenae, Clinton knew IYA was the one. Creativity was so impressed with her skills that he asked her to write two songs and spit a verse on each. "Stop" and "Let Me Go” were released in 2001 and received play throughout the nation. In 2004 Iya moved to Norfolk VA, to attend Norfolk State and also became a popular radio personality at WNSB Hot 91 (2004 - 2009). In 2009 Iyadonna graduated from Norfolk State with a degree in communications/broadcast. IYA has worked with such artist as: Akrobatik, K.T, Virtuoso, Chubby Chub, Tank, Roy Barboza, Vendetta, JV the rap-singer, Boston Massacre, John Doe and more. She has shared the stage with some of the best in the game. She also still rhymes with her Boston based crew "MEANTOWN". Iya has been featured on mixtapes and dvd's across the country. Iya has done Monster Jams to Middle East battles with more coming... Iya is also involved with a DVD magazine called CHEDDAR. **See exclusive Iya freestyles, introductions, and 16's on volumes 1, 2, & 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today Iyadonna is now signed to independent label 32 Track productions owned by DJ Creativity and success started right away with a song called "Respect" which received play on Music Choice, Sirius Radio, mix tapes and radio stations all over the nation. IYA is truly a very unique versatile rapper, singer and song writer. She is able to stretch from pop to hip hop from rhyming to singing from the streets to the clubs which is not only rare for a female to do, its almost completely extinct. Iyadonna now has showed the world now her pop side with the huge follow up to "Respect" and "Step to the side" with "DANCEFLOOR", which from January - April 2010 recieved 300 BDS/Mediabase spins across the country!! "DANCEFLOOR" also recieved play overseas in Greece, London, Indonesia, Amsterdam, and Japan to name a few!! After "DANCEFLOOR" success, it has major record companies very interested in the IYADONNA /32 TRACK ! Now the follow up single "Be Myself" is doubling the #'s at radio with 600 spins from May thru Dec . 2010, and has just released a remix to it with the one & only Fatman Scoop!!
All this buzz has lead to Iyadonna being nominated for 2011 Artist on the Verge!
