NILES, IL, May 14, 2008 – Colombian singer and Shure endorser Juanes won the Male Pop Album of the Year Award for “La Vida Es un Ratico“ at the 10th Annual Latin Billboards at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. While it was undoubtedly an honor for him to win this award, perhaps more significant was that Juanes also received the Spirit of Hope Award for his humanitarian work, which he does through his Mi Sangre Foundation – an organization he created in 2005 to aid victims of land mines in Colombia. more

PRACTICING THE “LOST ART? WITH SHURE UHF-R WIRELESS

JC Convertino Mixes For ABC’s “Good Morning America?

NEW YORK, NY, April 14, 2008—Just like other morning shows all over the television airwaves, “Good Morning America” makes good use of live music.

“So many acts have been through here that it’s easier for me to recall those I haven’t worked with as opposed to those I have,” says veteran audio engineer John “JC” Convertino, the man behind the music mix on ABC’s popular rise and shine program. “In the 10 years I’ve been doing this, everyone from Bruce Springsteen and Rascal Flatts to Maroon 5 and Lenny Kravitz have been on our stage at one time or another. The pace here is exceptionally fast, with each artist essentially showing up just as they would for any other tour stop. We have to do all the work required of a full-blown concert at Madison Square Garden and more, but usually just for two or three songs. If there’s any real trick to it all, it’s making each guest sound just like they do on their records.” more
