This just in: after a heavy fan write-in campaign, Downhere’s Marc Martel has just been added as a nominee for the MTV O Awards 2 in the Best Fan Cover category for his YouTube.com video audition of “Somebody To Love” for the Queen Extravaganza. (Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, I included it here again.) You can vote for him at OMusicAwards.com.

Voting began just under a week ago and already more than three million votes have poured in, as well as nominations for additional candidates to be added to the voting pool, such as Martel. He recently performed “Somebody To Love” on The Ellen Show last Monday, October 3rd and received a standing ovation from the audience.

The winners will be announced Monday, October 31, 2011 and will livestream on OMusicAwards.com.  The first four minutes of the program will air on the MTV television network. The event celebrates and honors the artists, innovators and fans impacting digital music culture. 

 Martel is currently on The Called To Love Tour with his band, Downhere, in support of their current CD, On The Altar Of Love.   The tour includes Downhere’s fellow labelmates, Jason Gray and Aaron Shust.  Martel and Downhere will be heading to Norway for an international tour later this month.  For more information on Martell please visit online, www.marcmartel.com or www.downhere.com.
