RightOutTV announced their first winners in the inaugural awards to celebrate the depth and diversity of the music in the LGBT community. The results reflect an impressive array of talent in 13 different categories. Winning artists represent the United States, Israel, Australia, England and Austria, making this a truly global contest. Next I will feature the winner of the Best Dance/Electronic (DIY) Video category.
The award was given to Shawn Thomas for his video, Out In This World. The song was originally featured on Shawn's 1999 album of the same name, but given a new life in this 2009 video.
Shawn Thomas is an out and proud performer, making contemporary music with a decidedly Christian and electronic bent.
