Obviously, we're not in this line of work for the awards or fame or 45 foot limos, we're in it for the joy of creating, the challenge of pushing ourselves in new directions, and the smile on all the faces when something we bring to life works the way it's supposed to. Happy faces are our favorite. 

That being said, award nods are always a welcome surprise and we about pooped our britches this morning when we got notified that we were nominated for the "Shorty Awards". Seriously, it's a super big deal to be nominated and we're incredibly honored.  Here's a brief description of what the Shorty Awards are that we literally copied from their site because why not?:

The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media by recognizing the influencers, brands and organizations on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Musically and more. Past winners include Taylor Swift, Tyler Oakley, Casey Neistat, Hannibal Buress, Malala Yousafzai, Jenna Marbles, J.K. Rowling, Adele, and DJ Khaled.

What happens on social media can change the world, create new stars and ignite global movements. The Shorty Awards were the first awards to honor social media, and by constantly evolving along with the medium it honors The Shortys remains the most prominent award show of its kind, engaging an online audience of millions and culminating in a blockbuster ceremony in New York City.

Winners are chosen through a combination of votes from the public and scores given by the Real Time Academy.

You can't see us smiling, but we are. 

HERE'S WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP: The WINNERS are decided by a combination of public voting and Twinkie eating contest, so we're pretty sure we have this one in the bag, but if you'd like to VOTE FOR US in the "YOUTUBE MUSICIAN" Category, we'd sure appreciate it and you can do so by clicking THIS LINK or by visiting https://shortyawards.com/11th/thevoiceplay

You can vote once per day until FEB 21st, so vote everyday if you can remember and if you've got friends who like to click internet things, maybe pass the word on and we'll see if together we can crush this thing.
