With certainly some modified quarantine initiatives and social distancing practices, the stadium Hotel in Miami Florida sets to take place the 5th edition of the Prestigious Haitian Music Awards (PHMA) where healthcare professionals will be honored for their investment and commitment to the fight against Covid-19.
The PHMA is an initiative led by the businessman and journalist Kerby Leveillé to honor and pay a tribute to those in the Haitian Music Industry (HMI) around the world.
