Award-winning Motown recording artist Ne-Yo will headline "Spring Fix," an MTV concert at Six Flags Great Adventure, later this month.
As part of an alternative spring break, MTV has teamed up with United Way and mtvU, MTV’s 24-hour college network, to bring 50 college students from around the country to the New York / New Jersey area beginning on Sunday, March 17 to help rebuild communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
"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," said Ne-Yo.
Celebrities will join the effort, including MTV’s Andrew Jenks and Vinny Gaudagnino. MTV cameras will be on the ground capturing all the “Spring Fix” activities, and the “Spring Fix” coverage will air during a special “Spring Break” themed week on MTV and mtvU beginning April 1, 2013.
To thank students for their service and raise funds for the United Way, Six Flags Great Adventure, the world’s largest theme park, located in Jackson, New Jersey will host the “Spring Fix” concert with three-time Grammy Award-winning artist Ne-Yo on Saturday, March 23, 2013, the season opening of the Park. Six Flags guests will also have a chance to attend the concert, and a portion of the proceeds from that day will be donated to United Way.
Young people who are unable to join “Spring Fix” but want to get involved will be able to find additional service opportunities at SpringBreak.MTV.com or at Serve.MTV.com. For more information or to get involved, go to Springbreak.MTV.com.
