Be Apart of the 2014 Artists In Music Awards (by GreatUnknowns)

Are you an artist or a company and you want to be apart of the fastest growing and most exciting music awards platform in Hollywood, CA? Go and find out how you can be apart of it today. 

On February 10, 2012, we hosted our very first Artists In Music Awards and had a record attendance of 1,500 people. We also began the Summer Showcase series that was hosted at House of Blues in West Hollywood. On December 2nd, we hosted our very first Nomination Event held at the world famous Whisky a Go-Go and gave out 130 Nomination Certificates to the Final Nominees in 26 categories. 

On February 7, 2013, we hosted our 2nd Awards Ceremony, plus Red Carpet Event at Key Club with 8 live performers including Ko-Lition, Cheating Daylight, Haster, Glitter Rose, Leave It To Us, Travis Royce, The Controversy, and Mika Ben-Yami. 

Now that the 2013 AIMAs are over, we are looking ahead to the 2014 Artists In Music Awards. We have a entire series line up to be held at Hard Rock Cafe on Hollywood Blvd called, “The Breakthrough Series” at the Hard Rock Cafe. Several artists will perform during the series, but only 4 artists will be invited to come back and perform at the Awards Ceremony. We will be giving away 27 award categories with some newly added categories including Best Funk Artist, Best Reggae Artist, and Performer of the Year.


The name Ilhame Paris alone says it all. In Arabic, the name “Ilhame” means “inspiration”.

When you are in the presence of Ilhame Paris, you’re not just drawn to her voice, or drawn to her by her incredible beauty, you are drawn by her intense spirit as a wonderful human being. Her love for life and passion for music is not only inspiring, but contagious.

Native of Paris, France and born of Moroccan blood, Ilhame’s musical diversity not only comes from her cultural background, her musical influence comes from a wide range of sources including R&B, Reggae, French Pop, and Jazz. Some of her songs are directly influenced by artists like Luther Vandross, Bill Withers, Rose Royce, and Bob Marley.

Two of Ilhame’s proudest accomplishments is doing very unique covers for the songs, “Waiting in Vain” and “I’m Still Waiting” originally created by Bob Marley. Ilhame not only honors the legend with an incredible cover of the song called “Still Waiting”, but she gives it a unique perspective by singing it in French and Arabic. That’s not all! Ilhame performs the song with Marley’s son, Ky-Mani Marley. Together, they create one of the most astonishing covers by the Reggae legend.

image Ky-Mani Marley and Ilhame Paris pose to the camera Ilhame’s debut album called, “Just Wish It” is filled with collaborations including Grammy Nominated R&B, Hip Hop, Electronica producer, Nicolay, and Shafig Husayn, who’s most notable work was a writer for Erykah Badu. Ilhame has also collaborated and recorded the songs with T3 of Slum Village and Rap artist, Big Pooh.

Having opened and toured for artists like Erykah Badu, Dwele, Van Hunt, The Roots, and Questlove, Ilhame is demonstrating she has the drive and ambition to do what it takes to become one of the greatest emerging artists of today.
