OXON HILL, Md., Sept. 5, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ — In previous years, the Excellence In Music Academy and Awards Concert Gala highlighted the accomplishments of emerging artists who successfully completed its merit-based curriculum in stage performance, marketing, metadata, and managing music business finances. This year, the Academy will additionally recognize 8 awardees – 7 organizations and 1 individual – for championing senior citizen issues, aging population advocacy, and elder empowerment.
