The Global Women's Empowerment Network today is pleased to announce that Lizzie Sider, 15-year old emerging country artist, is nominated for a 2013 Hollywood Music in Media Award for her accomplishments as a national spokesperson for the GWEN (Global Women's Empowerment Network). The winners will be announced on Thursday, November 21 live at The Fonda Theater in Hollywood, California. The show starts at 8:00 p.m. During the ceremony Sider will perform her song "Butterfly," for which she is nominated.
Lizzie's nomination was submitted by GWEN, a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to help stop all types of abuses of women around the world. As a spokesperson for GWEN, Sider has been participating in an ongoing anti-bullying campaign by inspiring and motivating children to treat each other with respect and kindness. She has been an integral part in raising awareness for the free GWEN ALERT app available in the iTunes store.
Says Tess Cacciatore, Co-Founder and COO of Global Women's Empowerment Network: "Lizzie Sider is a role model and inspiration to me personally, and we are very proud to have her as part of the GWEN family."
Sider has been interviewed by Access Hollywood, Billboard, The Queen Latifah Show, Hallmark's Home & Family show, TIME for Kids, Nashville's Crook & Chase, and was named by the Country Music Association as an "Artist to Watch in 2013." Sider, who splits her time between Boca Raton, FL and Nashville, TN, recently participated in her first CMA Fest week with her own booth and with a live performance at the famed country music venue, The Wildhorse. Both "Butterfly" and Sider's follow-up single, "I Love You That Much," charted in the Top 40 on Music Row. Sider co-wrote "Butterfly" with Jamie O'Neal (There is No Arizona), Jimmy Murphy, and Lisa Drew. The video for "I Love You That Much" was directed by award-winning Steven Goldmann, whose past credits include Alan Jackson, Martina McBride and Shania Twain. Sider is currently working on her first full-length studio album for release in 2014.
