Radio Disney – the No. 1, 24-hour radio network devoted to kids, tweens and families – announced today that an awards event, the Radio Disney Music Awards, will take place at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on April 27. The show will feature some of today’s most popular young artists, including Selena Gomez, Bridgit Mendler and Coco Jones.
The event aims to extend the networks promise to kids, “your music, your way,” to include “your awards” by giving kids an opportunity to vote on various categories. Because kids and tweens are increasingly using digital platforms to view content, Radio Disney will present the ceremony in segments on VEVO and on Disney Channel, Radio Disney, RadioDisney.comand Disney.com.
The award show will also honor five kids with the “Heroes For Change” award in recognition of their efforts to make a difference in their communities. Additionally, in collaboration with Disney Friends For Change, kids between the ages of five and 18 across Radio Disney’s 31 markets are invited to enter for a chance to win a Youth Service Award, which provides one kid from each market with a $500 grant to benefit their community project and a chance to be honored live on-stage at the Radio Disney Music Awards with one of their favorite stars.
Radio Disney is unique in its ability to engage kids and put their requests first – and this event will be no different! To learn more about Radio Disney or for ticket information, click here.
