Post StarShine Magazines announce 2007 Nominees Reply with quote
"Staten Island, NY—February 1, 2007—StarShine Magazine starts 2007 off with their 5th annual Readers' Choice Awards! The nominees are in and with three new categories, and a more diverse line-up, this is predicted to be StarShine's biggest voting turn-out yet. This year's candidates offer a diverse taste of what the magazine has to offer ranging from unsigned artists to best selling ones to fan favorites.

R&B/Pop Universal recording artist JoJo leads the pack once again, this time with 8 nods, breaking her previous record from last year. Following JoJo's lead is country superstar Gretchen Wilson and new Christian artist, Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell. Both artists have 7 nominations a piece. Gretchen Wilson is StarShine's first real taste of country. Though she's a bit out of her element, StarShine's editor, Sandy Lo Grasso has high hopes for her running in the polls. "Gretchen was our first country star to appear in the magazine, and though, she's up against some mainstream heavy hitters, we know she can hold her own and bring in a whole slew of new voters." Lo Grasso says.

Wilson is up for "Album and Artist of the Year" along with JoJo & Littrell. Also joining them in those categories is pop/rock band The Click Five & Nick Lachey, who both have a fair amount of nominations as well. What is really prominent this year is the smaller, unknown artists like "House of Carters" star, Leslie Carter, Indie talent, Britney Christian, Swedish pop star, Anna Sundstrand and her tour mate, Chris Trousdale.

The infamous Kevin Federline even earned 2 nominations for his single, "Lose Control". "StarShine doesn't judge an artist's lifestyle." Says Lo Grasso. "We're not critics and we don't claim to be. We're all here for two things: to have fun and meet interesting, talented people. We want our readers to have that same attitude. We don't want them to follow the tabloids because music and movies aren't about that. Art isn't about that." Through Sandy Lo Grasso's vision, StarShine Magazine brings focus back to art instead of the trash.

New categories in the 2007 RCA's include: "Best Rock or Country Song", "Independent Song of the Year", and the "Shining Star" award. The "Shining Star" award is the only category that is not voted on by the readers. The winner is chosen in advance by the staff of StarShine Magazine based on a celebrity's charity work. This year's recipient is Howie Dorough of the Backstreet Boys for his continuous work through his charity, the Dorough Lupus Foundation.

Other nominees include: Breakout Show Dog artist--Lindsey Haun, Latin boy group--C Note, po/rock group--The Jonas Brothers & rock bands Saving Jane and Lucky Boys Confusion.

Voting for the 2007 StarShine Readers' Choice Awards begins February 15th on www.starshinemag.com and polls will be open until March 25th. Nominees were chosen by the staff of StarShine Magazine based on the popularity of artists on the website and in the e-zine between July 2005 and December 2006. Winners will be selected strictly by who receives the most votes submitted into the official voting ballot on www.starshinemag.com .
