The show is over, and what a show it was! After months of preparations and ballots going out to thousands of SoulTrackers, the winners of the 2009 SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards were announced during our international broadcast on December 7th. Many thanks to our host, Jodine Dorce, Fusicology's Nina Morena and all of the stations around the world that carried the broadcast.
And many thanks to all the SoulTrackers who participated in this year's awards voting. Because of you, a donation in the amount of $5,000 was made to Detroit's Cornerstone Schools, a series of three urban schools that have become a national model for how to educate our children.
