Greg London to Host 2012 Hollywood Music in Media Awards, 11/15
Fresh from conquering Reno and most recently Las Vegas, Greg London (www.gregorylondon.com) is ready to rock Los Angeles as the main host of the 2012 Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA), set for Thursday, November 15 at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood.
The powerhouse vocalist, recording artist and master musical impressionist is a renowned presence at the HMMAs, winning Best Adult Contemporary Song ("Everything I Own") in 2009 and receiving a nomination in the same category for "Don't Be So Hard On Yourself" in 2011.
London assumes his duties during a unique and exciting transitional time in his career. After three years receiving rave reviews (and designation by Nevada Magazine as "Entertainer of the Year" in 2011) for his "Greg London's ICONS" show at the Las Vegas Hilton (since been renamed the LVH - Las Vegas Hotel), he chose not to renew his contract. Since May, the multi-talented entertainer has performed at private events everywhere from Los Angeles to Paris (he owns a castle in Bordeaux!) and headlined on Norwegian Gem and Norwegian Dawn, two crown jewels of the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet. London also is endorsed by MAC Cosmetics, as he uses their products to visually perfect his master impressions.
London's Vegas show took his former show "ICONMAN" and refashioned it as a dynamic culmination of his long and incredible journey, where a man in his youth hears a singular guitar and heads out on his own Hero's Journey.
At the end of 2009 LonDon Garnered a "Best Impersonation" credit by Rolling Stone Contributing Editor David Wild, in The Huffington Post for his spot-on take of Ozzy Osbourne performing a duet with Kermit the Frog. In 2009, Greg London's "ICONMAN" was voted "Best Show of Northern Nevada" by Nevada Magazine.
As a recording artist, the singer's version of "Everything I Own" was the highest charting new artist release and highest charting release on an independent label (airplay charts) of 2009. London scored back-to-back Top 5 singles on the FMQB Adult Contemporary Radio Chart with covers of Bread's "Everything I Own" and Little River Band's "Cool Change." London also made Music Connection Magazine's list of Hot 100 Artists of 2009.
