NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) February 7, 2004
Groovevolt.com, one of the Internet's leading music sites, announced the winners Friday for its First Annual GV Music & Fashion Awards. Voting for the awards took place at Groovevolt.com beginning December 2.
Sultry singer Mariah Carey took home four GV Music Awards, including honors for Best Hip-Hop Collaboration (ÂI Know What You WantÂ with Busta Rhymes), Best Female Pop Album (Charmbracelet), Best Female Song Performance (ÂThrough the RainÂ), and Best Unreleased Pop Album Track (ÂMy Saving GraceÂ).
"Thank you to our loyal readers who made the first annual GV Music Awards such an overwhelming success," Groovevolt.com Editor-in-Chief Chauncy Jackson said. ÂPeople complain about the state of the music industry, but our readers have highlighted the positive aspects that are so often overlooked.Â
Christina Aguilera took home three awards, including two of the top five in the General category. Aguilera beat the likes of 50 Cent, the White Stripes, and Radiohead to take home Album of the Year honors for Stripped. She also took home Video of the Year honors for ÂBeautifulÂ and took home a Most Fashionable Music Video award for ÂCanÂt Hold Us Down.Â
Missy Elliott took home three awards in the Hip-Hop category, winning awards for Best Female Album (Under Construction), Best Song Performance (ÂWork ItÂ) and Best Deep Cut (ÂWhen Kim Say,Â the LilÂ Kim track on which she was featured.)
Other multiple award winners included Luther Vandross, Evanescence, Justin Timberlake, and the late Warren Zevon, whose final album, The Wind, won the award for Best Male Rock Album.
ÂThese awards reflect the feelings of the people who buy the music,Â Jackson said. ÂMore than a half-million votes were cast by fans who were interested in voting for their favorite artists. The nominations were not influenced by record company politics, so we consider the results to be an accurate indicator of what was truly popular in the music world last year.Â
Nominees were chosen from artists whose albums were released from August 15, 2002 to August 31, 2003. Singles released during that time period were eligible, even if the albums from which the song came were not yet released.
