To celebrate International Women’s Month, the Women’s International Music Network (the WiMN) is proud to announce three of the distinguished honorees for the 2022 She Rocks Awards. Iconic singer, actress, television host and former UN Goodwill Ambassador, Dionne Warwick will be joined by the GRAMMY®-nominated guitarist and BONES UK co-founder Carmen Vandenberg, and multi-instrumentalist Yvette Young, the front-woman for the math rock band, Covet. The She Rocks Awards are celebrating their 10th year honoring female artists, record industry executives and media personalities throughout the music landscape.
The ceremony itself will continue to pay tribute to women in the music industry with the 10th Annual She Rocks Awards, taking place at 6:30 pm PT on Thursday, June 2, 2022, at a new location – The Ranch in Anaheim, CA and will be streamed live. The event is set to feature a stellar array of soon-to-be announced fellow honorees in what will be a hybrid of in-person and virtual components, to adjust to the current times and worldwide fanbase that was created during last year’s all-virtual event.
This high-energy evening will include live music performances, awards and speeches, celebrity appearances, a fabulous online silent auction, and much more. A VIP gift box is also available, the ultimate She Rocks experience for those viewing the live stream from home. All packages and tickets are available for purchase now.
