Las Vegas - Century Media recording artist Otherwise will be the featured performer at the inaugural Nevadan by Choice Awards, which will take place Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012 at The Venetian Las Vegas Casino, Hotel & Resort.
The awards, sponsored by the Americans for Prosperity Foundation-Nevada and the Congress of Racial Equality, honor individuals who have immigrated to make Nevada their home and those who work to promote and uphold the United States Constitution.
Otherwise will perform their breakthrough single "Soldiers" in tribute to service members of the U.S. Armed Forces and make a donation to the Wounded Warriors Project, which aids severely injured soldiers in their transition from service back to civilian life. The band is donating proceeds from the sale of the single, which has sold more than 10,000 copies to date.
