Cincinnati, Ohio — I Hear Music In The Air 2011 delivered a seamless three day convention that offered something for everyone.  Founder and Visionary, Tracey Artis pulled together some of the industry’s top leaders, billboard charting artists and brightest minds in the Gospel Industry for the weekend including  Ambassador Dr. Bobby Jones, Vickie Winans, Bishop Hezekiah Walker, J.

Moss and Hezekiah Walker and the Love Fellowship Choir who were simply blessed beyond measure and SHUT IT DOWN!

It truly was undoubtedly a blessed weekend, along with Saturday morning sessions that offered a wealth of knowledge from everything to radio play to Leaders in Ministry. And although the conference was rich in practical information, the highlight of the weekend was probably different for everyone who attended.

Closing out the weekend, a private listening party was held for a select group of artists including Derrick Starks, Showanda Smith, Zebillion Ellis and Christopher. The setting was intimate and offered a rare opportunity for these new artists to receive feedback and guidance from some of the best in the music business including Tracey Artis, Dr. Bobby Jones, Vickie Winans, The Belle and James Walker, Esq., all offered helpful feedback.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Sharonville, OH served as the host hotel and Rhino’s Live hosted the “Teen Summit” and “I Hear Music’s Best”, hosted by Doris Stokes and J. Moss.
