HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/22/13 -- Multi-talented performer Shevyn Roberts (www.shevynroberts.net) picked up her second Hollywood Music In Media Award (HMMA) nomination for the song "Upside Down" in the Pop category. She scored her first HMMA in July, also in the Pop category, for her single "Superstitious."

Roberts and other nominees will be honored at the ceremonies held at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood on Thursday, November 21, 2013. The HMMAs honor music from visual mediums, individuals who create and produce it, and both mainstream and independent musicians from around the globe.

Shevyn's upbeat dance/pop EP Superstitious is also available for download and streaming on Amazon and Spotify as well as many other major retailers and music sites.

On the supercharged dance/pop title track Shevyn sings playfully about astrological signs and the things presumed to bring us good and bad luck. The infectious song was penned by EP's producer Louis Yoelin (Valora / Hollywood Records and Shelby Cobra / Disney Records).

Roberts capped 2012 by being named one of Music Connection magazine's Hot 100 Unsigned Artists & Bands of the year, although fans in Roberts' hometown of Houston have been feeling her vibe the past few years. In 2008, her video for the song "Wild Child" -- a track from her first EP, produced by Dave Carlock (P!nk, Nine Inch Nails) -- aired on the city's Hot TV. Later that year, she was a featured artist at Jingle Jam, a holiday time concert put on by 104.1 KRBE (Houston's #1 Hit Music Station) that included performances by Rihanna, Chris Brown and Gavin DeGraw.

The following March, the singer performed as the only featured artist at the Britney Spears concert pre-party at Houston's House of Blues; she ended 2009 by opening for an about-to-explode Justin Bieber at the Verizon Wireless Theater.

Roberts, who is a six-time National Solo Dance champion as a teenager with the American Dance/Drill Team School and Showtime International, opened Shevyn's Dance Academy in 2010, a non-profit organization for kids offering ballet, jazz and hip-hop dance classes.
