2010 Martin Luther King County Jr. Executives Awards for Excellence in Hip Hop at MUSICA Festival
MUSICA Festival 2010
Featuring the Martin Luther King Jr. County Executive's Awards for Excellence in Hip Hop
MUSICA Entertainment is proud to present MUSICA Festival. Monday January 18th 2010 will be our 6th year of celebrating Hip Hop and its impact on music, diversity, lifestyle, and culture worldwide. This event honors the legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Hip Hop & Arts in general are still a voice for social change. Like Dr. King, Hip Hop and the Arts are also often controversial. As a world wide phenomenon Hip Hop emerged as a form of expression and an outlet for oppressed people.
Through Hip Hop and the Arts, we seek to honor the legacy of Dr. King by showcasing artists' voices and talent. In particular, we showcase those who have the wisdom and/or courage to speak out and create awareness to the plight of under-represented communities, injustice and inhumanity worldwide.
The King County Executives Awards For Excellence in Hip Hop presented by King County Executive Dow Constantine.
