2012 En Sound Music Awards Winners Announced; President Received Honorary Georgia Citizen honor

The En Sound Music Awards performers all brought their A-Game to the stage on Sunday, July 29. This was truly some of the most talented artists that I have ever had on the show, and truthfully, we've always had some of the best indie artists on our shows. The big winner for the night was Delra Harris who won 8 of the 9 categories that we was nominated in; Martin PK from South Africa walked away with Two wins. Radio personality Big brother CJ was recognized with a Special Achievement awards for his years of service to Gospel radio. In addition, Chief Tunde Adetunji, the Cultural Ambassador for the continent of Africa was recognized with the President's Global Impact Award for his effort in bridging the gap that exist between nations, while Delra Harris received the President's Global Impact Awards for Music.

Later on that evening, En Sound's President, Delroy Souden was recognized and received a Honorary Georgia Citizen award from the Secretary of State, Brian P. Kemp. That award was presented by Chief Tunde Adetunji who told the audience that this same honor was presented in the past to President Bill Clinton, Coretta Scott King and Nelson Mandela and others.
