The Gospel Music Association’s IMMERSE has become known as a one-of-a-kind experience where the Christian music community gathers to educate and inspire fresh talent while simultaneously celebrating excellence in the market. IMMERSE 2016 took place on June 13-15, 2016 at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN and boasted an incredible line-up of artists, songwriters and music professionals who are committed to sharing real-world advice and guidance to the industry’s next generation.
IMMERSE 2016 was the most dynamic event to date, featuring artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman, Jordan Feliz, Lauren Daigle, Josh Wilson, Danny Gokey, Chris McClarney, and many more. Mentors for the business track included industry executives David Smallbone (Manager, for KING & COUNTRY), Laurie Anderson (Manager, TobyMac, Mandisa, Capitol Kings), Rod Riley (Word Entertainment) and others.
IMMERSE gives hands-on training and mentoring to inspire creativity, foster community and advance education. Programming for this 2016 event included classes and seminars focused on music business, worship leading, songwriting, artist development and filmmaking taught by industry leaders. The successful reVIEWyou program that combines mentoring with a songwriting and performance competition also returned to help shape and scout emerging talent.
