The first official meeting for the URBAN GOSPEL MEDIA ALLIANCE (UGMA), a division of the URBAN GOSPEL ALLIANCE (UGA), was held during the THIRD ANNUAL URBAN GOSPEL INDUSTRY CONFERENCE AND AWARDS in HOUSTON. Current and veteran radio personalities, along with print and online media, attended to catch the vision of the UGMA from founder/national director of UGA, CURTIS JERMANY.
JERMANY addressed the overall needs of the urban gospel genre and how various media outlets and mobile DJs play a pivotal role to move quality artists onto a national platform. “In order for the genre to prove that it is not just another fad, it is vital that the supporters of the music band together to help push the urban gospel movement to the next level,” JERMANY said.
UGMA will also develop promotional tours, national market awareness and assist with capital development.
