For the fourth year in a row, BET Music Matters artists will also have  the opportunity to grace the BET AWARDS  stage. This year’s ‘Matters’ artists are  Austin Brown and Curtis Fields, who will take the stage to give  the world a sneak peek of their  talents.

Austin Brown is a 27-year-old musician, singer, and  songwriter based in Los Angeles,  California. His stunning sound combines the soul and harmony  of late 70s R&B with the rhythms of modern electronic pop. Among his major influences are ground breaking music  legends Prince, George Michael and  his family, the Jacksons.

Hailing from Montgomery, Alabama, Curtis Fields is a singer whose songs are the perfect blend of soul-searching and emotion.   While attending Fisk  University he joined up with the Fisk Jubilee Singers and traveled  the world to places as far-ranging  as Africa, India and Spain.  Today, he is signed  to Epic Records and working on his debut album.

Hosted by actor and comedian Chris Tucker, the BET Awards ‘13 will  air live from the Nokia Theatre L.A.  Live, in Los Angeles, Sunday, June 30th at 8pm  ET/PT on BET.
