From the 10th Annual Shorty Awards Best in Music

If music is the universal language, it makes sense why so many artists share their lives on social media. Whether Instagramming performances, Snapchatting backstage, or tweeting out where the after party is, musicians are using social media to communicate with their fans in ways other than their sounds and lyrics.

If you’re a brand looking for recognition for your use of social media in this space, enter the Best in Entertainment Shorty Award.
