Swizz Beatz & VH1′s Save the Music Foundation Raise Money for Hurricane Vicitms
Mega-producer Swizz Beatz is definitely in the Christmas spirit. The beat maker is organizing a bevy of his celebrity friends to perform for the VH1 Save The Music Foundation’s 2012 Songwriters Music Series finale reports AllHipHop.com.
Swizz Beatz is set to host the event which serves to encourage students in their musical creativity through music composition and production.
The event is being held on Jan. 17 at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City’s Times Square, and in addition to the VH1 foundation, proceeds will also go toward the Tri-State Save the Music Relief Fund.
This fund will help students who were impacted by Hurricane Sandy to replace their instruments and other musical equipment that was damaged during the storm.
Swizz Beatz said he is so inspired by New York City and the surrounding area, he couldn’t help but give back in this time of need.
“New York City and the Tri-State area is my home and it’s a place that constantly inspires music and creativity for myself and millions of others,” the producer said. “I’m going to bring out some friends and put on a crazy show to support the VH1 Save the Music Foundation and the creation of the Tri-State Sandy Music Relief Fund so this creativity can thrive again for kids all over the East Coast.”
Tickets can be purchased here and more performers and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks. Perhaps one of them will be Swizz’s R&B star wife Alicia Keys? We’ll be announcing the lineup as it is revealed.
