ABCD 2013 Awards Gala

Friday, November 1, 2013

The 2013 ABCD Awards Gala will be held at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel on Friday, November 1, 2013.  

Award -winning film director and producer, Spike Lee, will serve as our keynote speaker for this amazing event.  Also taking the stage at the ABCD bash is American Idol star Angie Miller. The 19-year-old from Beverly, Mass. wowed judges and audience with her powerful vocals and original music as a finalist on season 12. Her “You Set Me Free” quickly became the breakout song of the season.  And for seasoned R&B and Mo’Town buffs, there’s The Spinners to make your heart beat faster and your feet tap! “I’ll be Around” and “Could it be I’m Falling in Love” will put us all in the mood…
