From the President
Good Evening!
Welcome to the Marietta Performing Arts Center! We are so excited
that you are joining us to celebrate the International Music and
Entertainment Associations 3rd Annual IMEA Awards.
What an amazing three years this event has been and I am beyond
grateful to be able to be apart of it and to serve as the President of such an
amazing organization. As stressful as it is at times, I would not give
anything for the amount of time that is put into making this happen. Tonight,
we are celebrating the creation of live performance and art.
Our nominees are compromised of individuals from all across the
United States and many foreign countries. Our awards are given out in
various categories across several genres. We honor the best in independent
music and theatre, worldwide. Once you get home from this event, I hope
you will take some time to research each of our nominees. They are all truly
phenomenal.
The International Music and Entertainment Association is a non-
profit organization. We are a 100% volunteer-ran organization and rely on
the support of donations and membership dues to continue to operate. This
event would not be possible if it were not for ticket sales, fundraisers,
contributions, and membership dues. If you would like to make a
contribution, you may do so by mailing a check with the amount of your
contribution to PO Box 352, Cave Spring, Georgia 30124. All checks and
money orders must be made payable to IMEA.
Finally, I want to say thank you to all of our volunteers who have
made this happen. Id also like to thank my dad, my mom, Sydney, and the
rest of my family for understanding the amount of time that is required for
making this happen and, lastly, congrats to all of the nominees, you are all
winners! I love you all.
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the 2015 IMEA Awards!

Sincerely yours,
