Camille picks up two more award nominations!
The JPF Music Awards have just announced their nominees for 2017, and I Sing Stevie has been picked in the Best Tribute Album category, while her song "They Won't Go When I Go" was selected for Best Cover Song. The winners will be announced later this year. Since the JPF awards don't occur every year, Camille's album was still eligible for nomination.
JPF (short for Just Plain Folks) is home of the world's largest music awards, which, according to the JPF site, recognizes "the other 98% of independent musicians". The long-running organization is now 50,000 members strong! Camille's two nominations puts her in excellent company alongside others who nabbed nominations, including Ashford & Simpson's Valerie Simpson, Eagles songwriter and solo artist Jack Tempchin, legendary singer Janis Ian, Hawaiian actress/vocalist Tia Carrere, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Gretchen Peters, longtime R&B crooner Mel Carter, and many more in 70-plus different music categories.
Check back here for updates on this prestigious honor as well as details of the upcoming JPF Awards Show in Los Angeles this August, where Camille will be a possible performer pending the lineup announcement. Since this year's awards are the first in several years, it promises to be a big event.

Happy Holidays to all! Be sure to check out famed journalist Scott Yanow's great new review of I Sing Stevie on Camille's reviews page. Here's a nice quote: "Her love for the music is obvious, as is her talented singing. One suspects that Stevie Wonder would love this CD."
There will be some exciting new things in the new year, including the release of the Deluxe version of I Sing Stevie with bonus tracks and alternate takes. There'll also be the release of several music videos from the album, as well as a documentary with Camille finally telling her fascinating life story.
And best of all, live concert performances! Stay tuned for all of it, and please sign up for her mailing list and follow her on Facebook and Instagram for the newest updates.
And to everyone, a happy new year!
