(SMG) – The Sorensen Media Group is pleased to announce the nominees for the upcoming 5th Annual Island Music Awards.

This year's show will feature six categories honoring the best in local music with up to seven nominees per category.

Categories include Best Orginal Hip Hop song, Best Male Performer, Best Female Performer, Best Pop/Reggae/ Alternative Song, Best Live Band or Group and Best Club DJ.

Amongst the nominees are seasoned veterans like Audrey Aguon, Gen Advincula and The Guam Jazz Quartet, up and coming talents such as Matt Sablan, High Rise, and 14 year-old Sirena Rose along with previous IMA winners like Santino Sgambelluri, Monica San Nicolas, Matala and DJ Lord Chris Berg.

“This year boasts possibly the most diverse list of nominees that we've seen since the show's inception in 2009,” explains producer Kyle Mandapat. “It really goes to show how much the music landscape has evolved and how important it is to honor these hard working entertainers.”

The winners will be decided by Sorensen's viewers and listeners. Voting will begin soon by paper ballots and online e-ballots.

The 5th Annual Island Music Awards is presented by Budweiser and The Globe and will air on the television stations of the Sorensen Media Group Fox6 and ABC7 later this year.
