Earlier this week we announced, via an exclusive in The Hollywood Reporter, that we will be Honoring the incredible producer and activist Russell Simmons with our Missions in Music Award at the 27th Annual EMA Awards. The Awards will be Hosted by our amazing Board Member and last year’s Male EMA Futures Honoree, Jaden Smith. The event will take place at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on September 23rd.


From animal activism to educational programs on climate change, Simmons has worked on several projects aimed to raise awareness of environmental issues.

“Russell exemplifies the spirit of our work at EMA, and we are honored to be celebrating him this year,” EMA president and CEO Debbie Levin said Tuesday in a statement. “Through his continuous engagement, Russell has promoted sustainable plant-based diets, generously donated to educational programs with climate-based campaigns and fought to abolish animal cruelty. We couldn’t be more proud to honor him with the 2017 EMA Missions in Music Award.”

“We can think of no better person to host the EMA Awards than our very own Jaden Smith,” said Levin. “As a member of our Board of Directors, Jaden embodies the values, dedication and commitment it takes to make meaningful change. He’s the role model for responsible and conscious sustainable actions for his generation. In a year that feels like our progress on environmental issues is being threatened, we couldn’t be more grateful to have Jaden bring his authentic passion to the EMA stage.”

This is the first of many exciting announcements regarding our Honorees. Stay tuned!
