After the first round of voting, the Madison Area Music Association (MAMA) just announced finalists for the 2016 MAMA Awards– our version of the Grammys. My tune “Ukulele”– inspired by my grenddaughter Harper Rose– is through to the fiinals for Children’s Song. If you belong to MAMA, please vote for me! If not, you can become a MAMA member and help put me over the top, while supporting a great cause that purchases instruments for needy kids and supports underfunded school music programs. Here’s how:
1) go to www.themamas.org 2) Click on “Awards” at the top of the home page 3) Next page, click on “MAMA Awards” and scroll down to “Vote” 4) Next page, click on “Fan Membership” and join for only $5 (again, this goes directly to charity). After you’re joined you’ll be invited to click on a page to vote. Click on the Award Category “Children’s Song” on the left, then vote for “Ukulele—John Duggleby” You can also hear my song by clicking on the name. Any questions, shoot me a cybernote.
For the price of a frappelattewatever, you can give deserving kids the gift of music and, conversely, demonstrate that folks who qualify for AARP membership (like me) can still write meaningful songs. Thanks, and rock on!
