David Archuleta, Donny Osmond, and Daniel Bernhardt to be presenters at the 2011 Entertainment & Choice Awards May 20th, 2011 Live from Salt Lake City

American Idol’s David Archuleta, Matrix series co-star Daniel Bernhardt and Utah’s very own Donny Osmond are only a few of the celebrities who will illuminate Utah’s 2011 Entertainment & Choice Awards on May 20th in Salt Lake City.

“This is a Hollywood awards show combined with the hospitality of Utah,” show producer Doug Osmond said.

The Entertainment and Choice Awards (ECA) were created to spotlight those companies and individuals who have contributed to Utah’s entertainment and business communities. Nominees will be honored from a variety of areas including film, television, radio, community contribution and athletics. It’s anticipated this black tie dinner, comedy, music and awards event will draw more than 1,200 influential attendees who share the same goal of contributing to and expanding Utah’s entertainment and business infrastructure.

Notable guests include; Olympic Gold Medal Winner Derek Parra, NBA Star Shawn Bradley, former Governor Norm Bangerter, author Richard Paul Evans, theater and music star Debbie Gibson, So You Think You Can Dance stars, Ryan and Ashleigh DiLello, sports radio personality Melinda Prince, the Utah Jazz Bear, pro-racer Aaron Oliveraz, rap artist TJ Fredette, television news icon Dick Nourse and many more!

Considered the “Golden Globes” of Utah, the ECA show provides a unique spotlight of recognition for Utah’s entertainment industry and everyone is invited to attend this evening of dinner, comedy, music and red carpet awards event. Tickets are available at www.smithtix.com.

In keeping with Utah’s time honored commitment to service and benefiting the community, the ECA has partnered with the medical foundation Neuroworx (www.neuroworx.org); a company dedicated toward the research of spinal cord injuries. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to benefit Neuroworx’s rehabilitation facility located in Sandy, Utah.

It’s really nice to be able to come home and to be able to be a part of this just because it’s something that is recognizing local talent,” Archuleta said. “I just love getting to support my hometown.”
