Editor’s Note: The Hollywood Music In Media Awards was very classy event, but the only problem we found it was that as media/press and vip we needed to wear like more than 3 different wrist bands. We also notice that people started to leave around 9:30 pm and that is rude. May be organizers needs to do this event on a Friday night like that people do not need to go work next day. In a good note we want to thanks the event publicist; Luck Media and Marketing especially Chrissy Stutphin and Shea Lea for allowing us to be part of a great event. Very special thanks to Producer/Actor Mark Valinsky of Valinsky Media Group and our representatives Daniela Hubbard, My Self Esteban “Steven” Escobar have a great time.
