Congratulations to June’s Diary (Ashley Williams, Kristal Lyndriette Smith, Brienna DeVlugt, Gabrielle “Gabby” Carreiro, and Shyann Roberts) on their Eddy Award win for the R&B Artist of the Year Category. The Eddy Awards is hosted by the Independent Music Academy and “is the only nationally televised award show that merges both the inspirational (secular) and gospel community which recognizes the independent artists”. In addition, “the Eddy Award is the first black owned independent award show to be taped live and aired Nationally to honor independent music artists exclusively”.
I’m proud of those girls, because they have been steady grinding. They tore the town down in New York and Atlanta with sold out shows. I can’t forget to mention how they lit the stage up during their set on The Great Xscape Tour. The only way to go is up for these young ladies. Also, word on the street is that we just might be getting an EP this year from them. Lawd knows, we could use some good ole R&B.
Keep your ears open!!!
