One of India’s largest private radio network, 93.5 RED FM and one of the country’s leading music portals, Music Plus have joined hands to launch a first of its kind initiative ‘RISE INDIA Awards.’
The award aims to recognize the selfless efforts of the COVID-19 crusaders. There are doctors, nurses, frontline sanitization staff, industrialists, brands, celebrities, influencers, journalists, social media personalities and even an ordinary person with an extraordinary will to wage a war against this pandemic.
‘RISE INDIA Awards’ is a four-week long initiative that will be streamed on Facebook and YouTube of RED FM every Friday, starting from 8th May. Nominations will be invited through RJ mentions and RJ videos where people can either self-nominate or nominate someone who has done notable work during the COVID-19 pandemic and deserves to be honored.
Speaking on the occasion, Nisha Narayanan, Director & COO, RED FM, and Magic FM, said, “Every battle is won by warriors and heroes who refuse to surrender to the enemy. These times are no different. Our Covid 19 heroes are keeping us safe, while they fight the war against the virus. And as a humble gesture to recognize these relentless efforts Red FM has collaborated with Music Plus to bring you Rise India Awards. Some of the biggest musicians and entertainers will be joining us during this weekly digital event. And every week we will also bring you stories of heroes, from across the country to inspire us. Saluting our Corona Heroes is the least we can do, and through that, hopefully also encourage many more heroes”
Hosted by popular RJs of RED FM every Friday for 4 consecutive weeks, the digital award ceremonies will be graced by a stellar line-up of singers and composers who would be supporting the initiative from their respective homes.
Sharing his view about his company’s new initiative, Tarsame Mittal, Founder, Music Plus, said, “In the present scenario where the world is battling to survive, there are some real-life heroes who are risking their lives to save others. With the Rise India Awards, we want to honor these frontline warriors and acknowledge their contribution.”
