The KCCM Awards will recognize excellence in Christian Music on April 18th during a day-long conference at Mid America Nazarene University in Olathe, KS. Catholic artists Matthew Baute and Sharmane have made it to the finals in their respective categories: Matthew for Best Inspirational Artist, and Sharmane for Best Female Vocalist.
The KCCM Awards is part of a day-long conference entitled "The Concert of Friends Event," meant to encourage Christian artists in their ministries. The day contains workshops on the practical aspects of being a professional Christian artist - songwriting, vocal training, marketing and selling your music, building a band, performance, etc. Alyson Bleistine of ALBIE Entertainment is presenting a workshop on Marketing and Selling Music, (how to find your market and offer your music for sale effectively).
Details of all the workshops can be found on the KCCM website.
Matthew and Sharmane will perform during the Awards program. GrapeVine wishes them luck in their categories.
