ROBIN NEEDS YOUR VOTE!
On December 15, 2010, Robin learned that she had been nominated for a prestigious Blues Music Award in the category of Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the Year. On December 16, Robin asked Tony to please travel to the Blues Music Awards presentation in Memphis on May 5 to accept the award on her behalf if she won. On December 17, Robin passed away peacefully at home.
You can help make sure Tony brings home that Blues Music Awards trophy by becoming a Blues Foundation member and casting your vote for Robin. Here are the simple steps you will need to follow:
Are you a Blues Foundation member? If not, you can join online at www.blues.org, or if you are more of a snail mail fan, download the membership form and send the completed form and a check for $25 to:
The Blues Foundation
49 Union Avenue
Memphis, TN 38103-2492
Be sure to say you were referred by Robin Rogers!
Once you are a member (if you join online, you will promptly receive a confirmation email) and have your membership number assigned, go to www.blues.org and click on the Blues Music Awards logo. Choose the "VOTE" option and identify yourself. You can even look up your number if you don't have it handy.
There are a number of categories in which to cast your vote, so you may want to do some research on the artists you're unfamiliar with and come back later to change your vote.
Your final vote must be cast by 7:59:59 (CST) on Tuesday, March 1, 2011.
