PERFORMING ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, DANCERS, SINGERS AND ENTERTAINMENT PERSONALITIES OF THE 21st CENTURY.
OFFICIAL PUBLIC INVITATION TO BE INCLUDED IN VOLUME V OF WORLD WHO'S WHO IN JAZZ, CABARET, MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT.
The Federation of American Musicians, Singers and Performing Artists (FAMSPA) and Timessquarepress jointly published this year 4 volumes of the series World Who's Who in Jazz, Cabaret, Music and Entertainment. The 2007 series consists of 6 massive volumes and the Yearbook. So far, 30,000 names, entries and biographies were included in the four previous volumes. The most recently published volume was: Showbiz, Pioneers, Best Singers, Entertainers and Musicians from 1606 to the Present (800 photos).
In the past, inclusion was strictly by invitation. This process has changed now in virtue of numerous requests received from singers, musicians and performing artists from around the world, and to a certain extent following complaints from professionals who were not included in the World Who's Who. Effective May 14, 2007, performing artists, dancers, singers, musicians, and members of the showbiz and entertainment industries can directly apply for inclusion in the forthcoming volumes and complete the Inclusion Application Form posted at the website of the Federation (see website below), by emailing Carol Lexter at [email protected] and/or writing to Federation of American Musicians, Singers and Performing Artists, PO Box 869, New York, New York 10009, USA.
The editorial board is currently working on Volume V and is accepting new inclusion applications submitted by professionals from the United States and foreign countries. Volume V is innovative and challenging, because it encompasses multiple and diverse forms and aspects of performing arts. In addition to mainstream music, cabaret and Jazz, Volume V has a very strong emphasis on contemporary Jazz singers, new releases, dance ranging from Jazz dance and free form to traditional, classical, ethnic, ballroom and ballet. Therefore, singers, musicians, dancers and performing artists (worldwide) are encouraged to apply for inclusion and to submit their biographies, description of their career highlights, photos, and information pertaining to their performances, appearances and activities. Volume V shall be published within 3 months and made available to the general public in mid August 2007. The title of Volume V is: PERFORMING ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, DANCERS, SINGERS AND ENTERTAINMENT PERSONALITIES OF THE 21st CENTURY.
