Several hundred people packed the ballroom at the Ramada Capitol Plaza in Atlanta to kick off the 2015 Singers and Songwriters Retreat weekend. As in past years, the conference started with the Icon Awards which again brought fourth the best of what it’s known for; a range of great vocalists, a powerful panel sharing their knowledge with the audience, the award presentations, and did I say some amazing singing?
This years award winners (who also made up the panelists) included:
Bryan Michael Cox
Karen Marie Mason
Kevin “Khao” Cates
Alvin and Calvin Waters
DJ Rodgers Jr.
Camisha “Misha” Gardner, Joselyn Best, and Beth Spangler each put on inspiring performances of their own material.
