Ne-Yo To Headline mtvU And United Way 'Spring Fix' Concert
The Grammy winner joins MTV’s Vinny Guadagnino and Andrew Jenks in honoring Storm Sandy volunteers.
Ne-Yo is giving back to those who are doing the same in the wake of Storm Sandy. And Celebuzz has the exclusive deets ahead of MTV’s official announcement on Monday.
The three-time Grammy-winning artist will headline the mtvU and United Way “Spring Fix” benefit concert at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey on Saturday, March 23.
"I feel privileged to be part of an event that not only recognizes young people who are volunteering their time to help people affected by Hurricane Sandy, but that is also continuing to raise awareness of the effect Sandy has had on many communities," says Ne-Yo.
MTV’s Jersey Shore and The Show With Vinny star Vinny Guadagnino, as well as World of Jenks documentary series star Andrew Jenkswill be among the celebrities lending a hand during the alternative spring break.
Additionally, MTV and mtvU will be airing highlights from the “Spring Fix” service projects starting Monday, April 1.
Service projects are being planned with United Way in New York, including Long Beach, The Rockaways and Staten Island, as well as Ocean County, New Jersey.
“Spring Fix” is just the latest effort from MTV to help those affected by Storm Sandy. Last November, it aired the hour-long fundraising special, Restore the Shore. The network held its first alternative spring break with United Way in 2006 following Hurricane Katrina.
