Winners of the 1st Annual ENLACE MUSICAL® Awards Announced

Integridad Network Inc., one of the fastest growing mass media organizations and a leader in communications aimed to the Hispanic audience, announced today the list of winners to the 1st Annual Enlace Musical Awards 2003.
“The PREMIOS ENLACE MUSICAL acknowledge artistic talent in musical creation, through a popular voting process, destined to celebrate and recognize excellence in music within the Christian market. It’s the most important annual recognition to the merit and the technical, artistic and creative excellence awarded by the Hispanic Christian community via Internet,” said Steve Thurston, President and CEO, Integridad Network, Inc.
The winners were obtained though an online voting process through single and secret votes collected from registered members of the Integridad Network community and through its musical division EnlaceMusical.com (http://www.EnlaceMusical.com), a process held between July 17 and August 31, 2003.
Several artists received multiple awards. Marcos Witt earned a total of three awards including Songwriter of the Year and Special Event Album of the Year for “Sana Nuestra Tierra” — a project born in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York — as well as the Lifetime Achievement award. René González nabs Album of the Year and Best Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year with “El Poder Está En Ti.”
In other categories, Funky was honored with Best Song of the Year for “Después de la Caída” along with an award for New Artist of the Year. Emmanuel Espinoza was individually awarded for Producer of the Year and collectively with his band ROJO for Group of the Year. Edgar Lira also received double awards for Male Vocalist of the Year and Best Rock/Alternative Band of the Year for “Contigo Es Así.” Jaci Velásquez was honored as Female Vocalist of the Year and P.O.D. earned Best Short Form Video of the Year for “Satellite.”
“Jaci, René, P.O.D., Funky, Marcos Witt and many others truly represent the depth and breadth of Spanish and English Christian contemporary music today,” stated Thurston during the announcement of the awards. “Their music, as does the music industry, spans the musical spectrum from Worship to Rap/Hip-hop to Pop and Rock with many more styles in between. It’s a strength that I’m glad is reflected in this year’s awards and it truly represents how Christian music is growing and expanding all around the world.”
