The People Have Spoken

CANTON'S OWN SHELBY 5 AMONG THE 2007 INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS
VOX POPULI WINNERS

Canton, MI based gospel group "Shelby 5" is among the diverse group of artists chosen as the Independent Music Awards (IMAs) Vox Populi Winners. The IMAs is a program that promotes independent artists, labels & releases to
11 Million+ music fans & industry insiders.

Now in it’s 7th year, this is the first time the IMAs has opened the voting process to include fans and industry voters that were not on the official judging panel, which this year included Peter Gabriel, Wynonna, Suzanne Vega and Ozzy Osbourne among many others.

Through press releases and outreaches to fans & industry, thousands have cast their votes at the online Vox Populi Jukebox at the Independent Music Awards site, creating some new winners - some by a landslide, some by a slim margin - and some voting upsets.

Designed to provide more opportunities for indie artists to get heard and win new fans, these IMA Vox Populi Winners are promoted to industry and music fans via print, online and other promotional initiatives.
