After taking a break for the weekend, it is time to restart the series spotlighting the winners of the 2012 RightOutTV Music & Video Awards. The depth in the categories was pretty amazing, and speaking as someone who was honored to have been asked to judge both in the preliminary round as well as the finals, it was never an easy choice. Some excellent music and musicians ended the competition without the win. But are certainly winners in my book. The first one we will check out will be the award for Best "Living Room" Performance. This category was topped by the amazingly talented Nhojj, for his video of him singing "He & Him." Nhojj released the song in February, and a few months later put this video up on YouTube. Enjoy the gifted and sexy singer/songwriter in his award-winning video.
You can purchase "He & Him" from iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. For more about Nhojj, visit his official website. You can also 'follow' him on Twitter, and 'like' him on Facebook.
Marlee and Tully of RightOutTV give one category to the fans of LGBT music, allowing them to vote for the Fan Favorite Award, from a list of all the artists who had a song or video nominated in the competition. To bring home the international nature of this contest, the Fan Favorite hails from Portugal. The winner is Sonasfly, a sexy member of the community. Here is her acceptance speech.
To learn more about Sonasfly, visit her official website. You can also 'follow' her on Twitter, or 'like' her on Facebook. I wasn't able to find a place to purchase her music, but I am sure that will change soon. To get a taste, here is the music video for "Carousel," which was also nominated for Best Video DIY (Do It Yourself). The song has such a beautiful and haunting quality to it. Enjoy!
Hope you enjoyed the music! Look for more tomorrow night.
