Few things bring families together like music. There’s the singing, the dancing, and the posters on the wall — music is the harmony between us, and Disney knows it.
Radio Disney has announced that the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards (RDMA) will be held Saturday, April 26 at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, and will air in an hour-long TV special “Disney Channel Presents the Radio Disney Music Awards” on Sunday, April 27 (8:00 p.m. ET/PT).
Tickets are available now at AXS.com.
“We’re excited to announce the return of the Radio Disney Music Awards for its second year and the opportunity to grow its reach with Disney Channel’s special broadcast highlighting all of the best performances and moments from the show,” said Phil Guerini, Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Radio Disney. “The 2014 RDMAs will celebrate ‘the biggest night in music for kids and families’ and recognize this past year’s favorite artists as voted on by our Radio Disney audience.”
The awards show will also present its “Heroes For Change” award which honors kids from across the country and recognizes their efforts to make a positive difference in their local communities.
According to the Disney press release, “Scheduled performers include Becky G, Epic Records’ Fifth Harmony, and Hollywood Records’ R5. The headlining act, plus more artists, will be announced at a later date. The even will be preceded by a seven city live event tour for kid and families, ‘On The Road to the RDMAs.'”
“‘On The Road to the RDMAs’ will featured performances by top Radio Disney artists, games, activities, and a chance to vote via and interactive kiosk for RDMA winners. The event series begins February 22 in Orlando with performances by Island Def Jam’s pop rock band The Vamps and Becky G, followed by stops in Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Dallas, and Seattle. The road show culminates in a free RDMA Pre-Show Festival that will take place in Nokia Plaza (at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE) in the hours leading up to the awards show. More information about each event will be available at www.Disney.com/RDMA.”
But that’s not all! In addition to the TV special, there will be exclusive and behind-the-scenes content airing on multiple Disney platforms, including Radio Disney, Disney.com, and the Disney Channel WATCH app.
