(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — New York based Ksolo won first prize at the Popkomm Innovation in Music & Entertainment Awards on Wednesday, September 15th in Berlin, Germany, for its interactive internet karaoke service which was considered a break-through in the karaoke business.
Online music marketing group SonicBids, from Boston, and digital entertainment leader Gracenote, from San Francisco, came in second and third.
IMEA 2005 patron and jury member Herbert Gronemeyer said in a statement, “There are many people willing to see winds of change take hold in the recording industry. Personally, I welcome the idea of a forum for new companies to present themselves and their ideas, and for this reason I was delighted to accept the invitation to be on the panel at the Popkomm IMEA.” Gronemeyer is a German pop star and director of Gronland Records.
There were over 300 companies from 20 countries included in the Popkomm IMEA 2005 competition. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
