The Women’s International Music Network (the WiMN), producer of the annual She Rocks Awards, is pleased to announce Amy Heidemann of Karmin as its first selected award recipient for the upcoming 2016 She Rocks Awards. Now in its fourth year, the event will take place during the NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., on the evening of Friday, January 22, 2016. Tickets go on sale October 1, 2015.

“It’s an incredible honor to be a recipient of a She Rocks Award and to be listed among such stunning musicians,” said Heidemann.

Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan of Karmin launched to stardom through their dynamic covers of popular songs such as “Look At Me Know,” “Super Bass,” and “Party Rock Anthem.’ After skyrocketing to success, the duo released their debut EP Hello in 2012, featuring their double-platinum hit “Brokenhearted.” Their talent landed them an appearance on Saturday Night Live, accolades from Diplo, Questlove, and The Game, and a Rolling Stone cover. In 2014, the duo released their full-length release Pulses, featuring chart-topping lead single “Acapella.”

With their second LP Leo Rising due out soon, the two broke off from their former label Epic Records to have complete creative austerity of their music. And with their new lyric video for “Didn’t Know You,” Heidemann is more exposed than ever, defiantly showing herself as sexy and confident, a theme that rings true for the new album.

“I’ve followed Amy’s career since before Karmin’s videos went viral. I am thrilled to honor her as an example of a savvy, talented performer and inspirational role model for musicians worldwide,” said
