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 Folk/Roots/Jazz (DIY) Video category.
The award was given to Julie Clark for her video, Courage Of Our Convictions. The video was directed by Peter Hackes when she performed in front of the US Capitol at the conclusion of the National Equality March. The march was held on October 11, 2009. The video is so very stirring.
Julie Clark is an out and proud performer since the release of her debut album, Feel Free, in 2003. You can find out more about the talented singer/songwriter on her official website here.
