Global Music Awards for Columbia album

We’re real­ly thrilled to report that Anne Cabr­era has received a Glob­al Music Awards’ “Sil­ver Medal Win­ner — Out­stand­ing Achieve­ment” award! In fact, she won sil­ver medals in two dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories.

For her album Colum­bia: We Dare to Dream, Anne won a 2018 Glob­al Music Awards sil­ver medal in the cat­e­go­ry ‘album’. She also won a sec­ond sil­ver medal in the ‘composer/composition’ cat­e­go­ry.

Here’s an excerpt from the Glob­al Music Awards web­site describ­ing their judg­ing process:

“We look for emo­tion­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion, the abil­i­ty to tran­scend, to make the lis­ten­er expe­ri­ence some­thing that is new and com­pelling. We want to be sur­prised and moved by what we hear. We want to be con­vinced that those we hon­or can real­ly move an audi­ence. The musi­cal joy of artists we select must be infec­tious. We want the artist to remind us why we care about music so much in the first place. Our judg­ing process hon­ors both pol­ished artists and those in which we sense future poten­tial.”

Unlike many albums that are col­lec­tions of unre­lat­ed or loose­ly relat­ed songs, Anne’s Colum­bia album real­ly is an ‘album’ in the best sense. Every track on Colum­bia: We Dare to Dream, from the first through the last, tells a piece of the sto­ry of the final Colum­bia space shut­tle mis­sion. If you’ve only heard part of it, please have a lis­ten from start to fin­ish. You won’t soon for­get it.
