Broadway star Eden Espinosa (Wicked) has won an Independent Music Award for the Adult Contemporary Song Of The Year for her track "Stone Cold Sober" from her debut solo album, Look Around. The album was released in December 2012.

"Stone Cold Sober" is written by Ty Taylor. Since its release, Look Around has also garnered recognition by the 2013 International Music and Entertainment Awards, winning Pop CD/Album of the Year, Producer of the Year (Joseph Abate), and Pop Female Vocalist of the Year (Eden Espinosa).

Now in its 13th year, the IMAs celebrate "the democracy of creativity and meritocracy of talent," honoring independent artists frequently passed over by the mainstream media. The IMAs will be awarded later this month by a panel of influential artist and industry judges, with a second Vox Populi (popular vote) determination to be made in July 2014. Winners will receive active promotions, distribution, and performance opportunities that will place them in front of nearly 1 billion music fans.
