The 2009 staging of the Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) awards will take place at the gardens of the Jamaica Pegasus hotel on Thursday February 05,2009.
Again, many of the leading luminaries in Jamaican entertainment will be on hand to present and receive awards. Additionally, several top Reggae and Dancehall performers will take the stage and deliver, live, some of their hits that helped to make this year special. The overwhelming response to the EMEs in its present format has inspired the organizers to improve on what many consider to be a well produced event this year.
For the coming, 5th annual (2k9) EMEs, the public will be allowed to assist in determining winners in the over 30 categories of awards. As such, voting will be accommodated (starting Jan. 01, ’09) via text as well as at the newly constructed website http://www.emeawards.com see also our MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/emeawards the anticipation and the excitement is building for the 5th annual EME awards, which is a non-profit venture geared towards the promotion of Jamaican music and entertainment and which will be a major event in the series of activities for reggae month.
