Special to the Atlanta Daily World
Atlanta-based recording artist, producer, director and songwriter Delra Harris, recent winner of nine En Sound Music awards, has just completed two new music videos directed by famed producer Jeffery Elmont.
Elmont has produced videos featuring Grammy Award-winning and nominated artists Lil Wayne and Flo-Rida and filmed commercials for Adidas, with NBA powerhouses Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose; Nike; and Mitsubishi.
Harris worked with Elmont to film videos for two of his award winning songs, “Look at Me Now” and “Please Speak to Me,” which are both scheduled for worldwide release before the end of the year.
At the 2012 En Sound Music Awards, a premier music event recognizing and honoring the talent of indie Christian artists from around the world, Harris led the nominations with nine nods. It was a clean sweep. Harris claimed all nine awards, and is the first artist in the event’s history to win this number of awards for the year.
Harris collected wins for Male Vocalist of the Year; Artist of the Year; Album of the Year, “No Authority”; Song of the Year-“Please Speak to Me”; Music Video of the Year- “No Authority,” Best Urban Song of the Year-“Look at Me Now”; Best Christian Dance Song of the Year-“Hope-Dance mix”; Best Inspirational Song, “Just Do It”; and the President’s Global Impact Award as International Recording Artist of the Year for his musical and philanthropic contributions worldwide. Harris also gave an electrifying performance during the awards show.
“I was up against some incredibly talented recording artists from all around the world,” said Harris. “So it was a humbling experience to be presented with so many awards before my peers, family and supporters in a setting where indie Christian artists are being honored, recognized and celebrated.”
Harris will launch the all-new delraexperience.com on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at midnight. “I have worked with our talented DXP (Delra Experience) team of developers for the past year-and-a half to meticulously fine tune one of our most amazing websites to date,” said Harris.
