Premier Gospel and Malaria No More launch World Malaria Day award
Premier Gospel launches Tunebreaker, the music award for unsigned, independent artists, with people power at its heart!
From Sunday 27th February, fans can vote for their favourite tune, simply by buying the tracks they love – pushing the artist up the music chart. At the same time they’ll also be helping support Malaria No More UK, the associate charity for the Award.
Malaria is a preventable disease that claims more lives of young children in Africa than any other single disease, claiming the life of a child every 45 seconds. Malaria No More UK is an innovative charity and part of a global movement to reach near zero deaths from malaria by 2015. The charity pioneers new digital and web based campaigns to promote this important cause and offers a strong fit with this groundbreaking award which takes social networking to a new level. Astute artists will draw on social networking sites to mobilise their fan base into voting for them.
Artists can enter their tunes into the chart and grab a chance to gain the award just by signing (for FREE) and uploading their tune and artist biog on to www.premiergospeltunebreaker.com. The winner will be announced on Easter Saturday.
Unsigned artists stand a chance of a winning a publishing deal with Premier Signature, £1000, a chance to sing at a Premier Gospel Event, and the kudos of being the first artist of the month on Premier Gospel Radio!
There are no losers in this Award; artists will have the ability to sell themselves and their music to a Global fanbase. They also have the chance to come away with enough money buy new equipment, more rehearsal time or recording a new track!
John Toone founder of TuneBreaker says ” the TuneBreaker method creates an environment for marginalised unsigned artists where the TuneBreaker Live Chart can show artists where they are in a chart based on sales. This is of huge promotional benefit to them and is a real incentive to push on and promote market and drive themselves forward. On top of all that they receive 50% of the net revenues too! We are proud to come together with Premier Media Group to launch the worldwide Premier Gospel TuneBreaker award and fully expect Premier’s expertise in this field to make this a huge success worldwide ”
Muyiwa Olarewaju, Premier Gospel’s Station Director said: “Premier Gospel TuneBreaker Live Chart is a chance for Premier Gospel fans to really get involved.
There are some great unsigned acts out there that deserve recognition. We’re not looking to do this award as a one off; this will be a monthly award, attracting Gospel artists from around the globe!”
Sarah Kline, Executive Director of Malaria No More UK said: “Premier Gospel Tunebreaker is an inspiring new initiative. We are delighted to be involved and to have the opportunity to share our message of hope that we can make malaria no more a reality”.
