Nothing however makes a queen sparkle more that diamonds. The Guild's partner ECJ Luxe (A Division of Diamonds Direct) will be on hand to dress out all of the stars in millions of dollars' worth of watches and diamonds.

The Guild prides itself on helping not only new artists find their way, but also helping older artists to stay relevant and current in today's market. During the AMG Heritage Awards the Guild showcases the legends of the past with new artists of today and then incorporates students from the public school systems to give them a chance to perform onstage in front of a live audience and then to be broadcasted into 17 million homes across the country. The Guild's executive president, recording star David L Cook says, "This is the sole purpose of our heart. To give these kids an experience they may never have again. But at least in the three hours that show is running, they will experience what it feels like to be a star!"

During the AMG Convention that leads up to the awards broadcast the AMG invites at least four to five hundred kids from the public school systems to come to their offices at the Monroe Crossing Mall in Monroe, North Carolina for a day of mentoring and fun. Kids are taught singing and performance skills as well as being given the chance to fellowship with other schools who might come from various economic, racial and diversified backgrounds. During their mentoring sessions the Guild also provides each student with a book bag and a school supply starter kit. Jimmy Davis the Guild's president said, "We want to make sure each kid has an equal opportunity and a good start. Some parents can't afford even the smallest things such as a book bag, so, if we can give just that we have made a difference in some small way. No child should have to be embarrassed or feel less than who they are because they have needs."

The Guild is in partnership with the City of Monroe and several Union County municipalities such as, Mineral Springs, Waxhaw, Indian Trail, Marshville and Hemby Bridge.
