Boston's hottest new Latin Band, "Alexander" is nominated for the "Boston Music Award" for next April , so  this time I'm asking you for your support in voting for him., 50% of the decision depends on this, so please, vote for him. For those who have access to the Boston Globe, you can find a ballot in the music section on Fridays and vote, for the rest of you who live far from Boston, you can vote thru www.boston.com on Fridays too. Please don't forget, since this is a very important award and it would be wonderful to win it, even though been nominated is almost as important and satisfying.
Well, thank you so much for your support, I will remind you on thursday night and friday too, we only have two Fridays left, votes have to be in before March 1st.
