Many of you who visit mikeshinoda.com often know I’m passionate about helping new artists succeed. So it’s no surprise that I’m a part of two Grammy® programs right now, to do just that.
Leading up to award show tomorrow, I have been one of the curators of a program designed by The Grammys® to spread the word about fresh new talent. The other curators include RZA, Kelly Clarkson, Ozzy Osbourne, Jim James, Kaskade, and Snoop. Today, I’ll be tweeting links to some of the artists I think are great, as part of that program, so make sure to follow me on Twitter (@mikeshinoda) to hear some great new music today.
The “Amplifier” program has been a hit with the Grammy folks, and as such, they’ve decided to do more than just shout out the artists. So we just announced a new campaign called CenterStage.
Whereas with “Amplifier,” the prize was a tweet by a popular artist to their fanbase, “CenterStage” aims to prove a dream experience for an emerging artist, including things like studio time with Grammy® producers and engineers, an opening slot on a tour or festival, and a music video. The Grammy network of artists and talent is as deep as it gets, so it’s clear that the people the winners will be paired up with will be spectacular.
Sign up, encourage your friends, spread the word. CenterStage is an incredible opportunity for a brand new talent to get their big break. Go to hyundaicenterstage.com to sign up and vote.
