E.L.I.A.S.: Musical Mentor

On Saturday, February 20th, 2016, the first ever Ohio Valley Hip Hop Awards took place in the ballroom of the McClure Hotel.  Local artists, with their friends, families, and fans, were recognized and rewarded for their craft, commitment, and contributions.  Several not only took to the stage, but shared the spotlight, paired up for performances, took what could have felt like a competition and turned it into a collaboration, and it was commendable.  The event not only encouraged current entertainers, but also gave a nod to the next generation.  I caught up with performer and 3 time nominee, E.L.I.A.S., for an in-person interview and piece of a live performance:
