Prism Awards

Richie Supa is up for a 2009 Prism Award nomination, tomorrow, for his single “In the Rooms.”  Supa wrote the track for the new social networking website, for recovering addicts, which is called In the Rooms.  Although it has only been around for eight months, the website made ripples in the media pool when it was featured last month on NBC 6.

For those who aren’t familiar with Richie Supa, the world-renowned rock star has been recording music and performing across the US and the globe for over thirty years.  His most recognized work was as lead guitarist for Aerosmith and his compilations along side Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi.  In the Rooms was written and recorded by Supa earlier this year and, shortly there after, nominated for a 2009 Prism Award.  As a recovering addict, Riche Supa has openly endorsed the social networking site, In the Rooms, since its inception.

The 2009 Prism Awards won’t be aired for public viewing until September 26, 2009 on FX channel, but please find the video of Richie Supa’s “In the Rooms” below.

The new social networking website, In the Rooms, was recently featured on NBC 6 in Miami, Fl.  The piece was featured on the morning newscast as part of anchor Joe Carter’s segment called, Carter’s Clicks.  In the introduction, Joe Carter poses the question, “what if there was a social networking site out there that was was 100% clean, one that was positive all the time and that even had the potential to save lives.”

The segment goes on to interview two recovering addicts, who credit part of the recent success of their rehabilitation to In the Rooms.  It then goes on to interview, founders Kenny Pomerance and Ron Tannenbuam, who say “We started this site because both of us had been in long-term recovery for over twenty-five years, and we thought it was time that the world saw how successful people are in recovery.”

The full In the Rooms segment, as viewed on NBC 6 in Miami, Fl. can be viewed by clicking on the video clip box below.
