Russian EMA Organization Hosts First Christian Music Awards Show
Here are some links to media coverage of the event, which took place earlier this month:
The EMA also held an event called the Moscow Music Forum in late November 2008 which was an important event in the development of Christian music in the Former Soviet Union. Watch a report uploaded to YouTube of the event (with English subtitles).
As head of the Gospel Music Association International Committee and International Representative of the GMA Board of Directors, I'm very proud to see how this organization in the Former Soviet Union is forming. We look forward to more news from the EMA soon.
