It’s hard to believe that it’s the middle of July already and that back to school season is just around the corner. To help get the school year started off on a positive note, Energizer is partnering with the VH1 Save The Music Foundation to help restore instrumental music education in America’s public schools. Helping to kick off the campaign is Grammy®-nominated platinum-recording artist and VH1 Save The Music Foundation Ambassador Jordin Sparks.
There are several ways for people to get involved.
Live Performance in NYC with Jordin Sparks
Jordin Sparks will perform at a secret location in New York City on July 28. If you live in the NYC-area or will be in the area, come join in the fun. The location of Sparks’ performance is a mystery, so keep your eyes on the VH1 Save The Music Foundation tab on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page, check out the Energizer Bunny® Twitter handle, @EnergizerBunny or follow #EnergizerSTM on Twitter for the latest news and hints. We’ll reveal the location the morning of the event. The performance is free and open to the public.
