Nick Pushes To Keep Music In School
Nick Jonas, 17 knows the power of music and that’s why the JoBro is using his powerful and wide-reaching voice to help keep music education programs in schools. The youngest member of the Jonas Brothers band is featured in a just-released PSA promoting the biggest “Battle of the Bands” ever. The competition is kicking off March 1 to recognize next month as “Music in our Schools Month.”
In the PSA (watch it below) Jonas says, “Music inspires creativity and keeps kids in school.” Recognizing that school budget cuts often chop arts and music programs first, the young teen pop star has partnered with VH1’s Save the Music and DoSomething.org to find out why music education is important to you!
Through the PSA, the Nick Jonas & The Administration frontman encourages musicians of all genres and talent-levels to make a video recording of themselves or their band. Musicians should include a heartfelt message telling the world (and education leaders) why music education is important on a personal-level. Enter the video by uploading it for a chance to win great prizes including funding for your school’s music program and a chance to performan in front of music industry big-wigs. Perhaps the biggest prize of all will be keeping arts and music programs from being nixed.
“Battle of the Bands” entries will be accepted between March 1 and April 16, 2010. Click here for complete rules and details for the “Battle of the Bands” campaign.
