IMMERSE, the Gospel Music Association's sixth annual conference for developing artists, songwriters and worship leaders, is right around the corner. The 4-day event will be held from June 22-25, 2014 at the LifeWay Christian Resources corporate headquarters in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.
Offering classes, competitions and networking events, concerts and mentoring from top artists and industry execs, IMMERSE has one main purpose - "to equip artists to take the next step in an environment of excellence and encouragement." Staying true to the Gospel Music Association's mission to "expose, promote and celebrate the Gospel through music," IMMERSE will "inspire creativity, foster community and advance education, while keeping its focus solely on Christ."
The 2014 event will offer classes and seminars in music business, worship leading, songwriting and artist development. Each will be taught by industry leaders from companies like Capital Christian Music Group, eOne Entertainment, LifeWay Worship, Provident Music Group, True Artist Management, and Word Entertainment. The reVIEWyou program, a track that combines mentoring with a songwriting and performance competition, will be on the program again this year to help shape and scout emerging talent.
