Launched alongside spokesperson Nick Jonas, the campaign encouraged teens to submit videos to DoSomething.org about the importance of music in their lives.
Nick, 17, was joined by other celebs including Death Cab for Cutie, Kristen Bell, and Americaâ€™s Best Dance Crew champions the Jabbawockeez, to share their stories about why music education matters and encourage participation.
DoSomething.org and the VH1 Save the Music Foundation will present the â€˜Battle of the Bandsâ€™ video submissions to Senators and members of Congress at events on the Hill in May and June 2010.
The Boys & Girls Club of St. Lucie County will receive a $5000 grant for their school music program and is scheduled to perform before music executives at DoSomething.orgâ€™s star-studded annual event at the Apollo Theater on May 24th. Four additional bands were also selected to receive up to $1000 for their school music programs, concert tickets, Rock Band video games, Fender guitars, and more.
