EmPower's Posi Music Awards are designed to showcase contemporary musicians who create a significant body of affirmative music.

In 2010, the Posi Awards accepted 500 submissions in seven categories, nominating three in each. Submissions undergo a four-phase judging process, including a final judging by a panel of professionals that includes Grammy winners.

Daniel Nahmod's music never fails to grab hold of my soul, and That One, the upbeat song for which he has been nominated in the Personal Transformation category, is no exception. In addition, his Inside (To Find My God) has been nominated in the Group/Chant category.

I first discovered Nahmod years ago, when I heard him perform at a Dennis Kucinich Presidential campaign rally in Phoenix, not long after he l eft behind a corporate cubicle to launch his music career . The minute I heard him sing One Power I was hooked. Later, I was glad to find him at other Kucinich rallies as well as new age church services. Nahmod won a Posi Award for One Power in the first year of the awards.

Marcy Baruch was also nominated twice, with Here I Am ( Healing category ) and Carry On ( Music That Matters category). Her sound and range is reminiscent of Joni Mitchell. Last year, her song This Inner Space won the Posi Award in the Healing category.

Faith Rivera's God Is was nominated in the Healing category. She won Most Uniting Song in 2006 with Colors of Praise , and shared an award with Harold Payne last year for a song they co-wrote, Stand Together.
