Award Night Surprise as Preach
Performs Live in Front of Music Industry Greats
HOLLYWOOD, CA-November 20, 2009: In a surprise move at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, musical artist Don Preach came onto stage for a live performance during the viewing of his award winning My Studio Music Video ‘Hero’. On Thursday, November 19th, in front of some of Hollywood’s most famous Music Industry professionals, Don Preach, along with back up singers, came out to drive his emotional song home and closed his performance to a standing ovation.
“This song was dedicated to the great men and women who have sacrificed to protect us.” says Preach. “But a true Hero can be anyone. It’s all about bringing out a much needed awareness and I just want to thank everyone for believing in me and helping me to share my message at the HMMA’s.”
Born in New Jersey, the son and grand-son of a preacher, Don Preach was instilled with the belief that positive thought and action can shape the world around you, though not a belief easily learned. His much anticipated CD, “My American Dream” , which will include the award winning song Hero, is the symbol of this movement, and one that recognizes the good deeds and character of everyday people.
Honing his talent for the past 10 years as an artist and producer, Preach started STEALTH MODE ENTERTAINMENT, and has collaborated with national and local artists and producers, including Grammy Award winning SHANNON SANDERS (credits include India Arie), GHOST KASEN (production credits include JA RULE, ASHANTI, IRV GOTTI, JENNIFER LOPEZ, MARIAH CAREY, MARY J. BLIGE, and JANET JACKSON
