ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Stateline leaders took some time today to recognize the achievements of many local artists.
Today the Rockford Area Arts Council announced the winners of the Mayor's Arts Awards at their annual fundraiser. One of the honoree's is Fatally Unique front man Prince Alonzo Russell. You may recall he and his dance troupe appeared on both BET and America's Got Talent. He tells us he's very humbled to be recognized today.
“I think I'm one of the youngest to ever receive this award, and so to know that a lot of the people who have received this award before are some of my inspirations, it is such an honor to be recognized right now at this point in my career,” said Russell.
