NE-YO TO HEADLINE MTV, mtvU AND UNITED WAY'S "SPRING FIX" BENEFIT CONCERT AT SIX FLAGS ON SATURDAY MARCH 23, 2013

MTV's Vinny Gaudagnino, Andrew Jenks, and more will join 50 Students from Around the Country during Spring Break to Help Rebuild Communities Devastated by Hurricane Sandy

New York, NY (March 4, 2013) -- MTV today announced that multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning Motown Records artist Ne-Yo is headlining the "Spring Fix" benefit concert at Six Flags Great Adventure on Saturday, March 23, 2013. 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. Celebrities will join their efforts, including MTV's Andrew Jenks, whose series "World of Jenks" premieres tonight at 11 p.m. ET, and Vinny Gaudagnino, former "Jersey Shore" star who will also host the new series "The Show with Vinny." 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.

"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.

To thank the 50 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. Ne-Yo found his big break when R&B singer-actor Mario scored a #1 hit with "Let Me Love You," which Ne-Yo co-wrote with the track's producer Scott Storch. The song made it to the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for nine weeks. Ne-Yo helped ring in 2013 with a performance on MTV's "Club NYE," and also shared the stage with Pitbull for an explosive performance during the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. 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.

Service projects are being planned with United Way in locations in New York including Long Beach, The Rockaways, and Staten Island, and in Ocean County, New Jersey. MTV's "Spring Fix" efforts are a continuation of the sustained effort by MTV to help rebuild Seaside Heights, New Jersey, and other areas devastated by Sandy. In November 2012, dozens of stars, artists and organizations joined with MTV for an hour-long fundraising special, "Restore the Shore," which helped raise desperately needed aid to help rebuild the heart of the Jersey Shore.

In 2006, MTV partnered to host the first ever United Way Alternative Spring Break, with students from around the country trading the typical beach parties and nights out to go to communities in the Gulf Coast to help with long-term recovery efforts following Hurricane Katrina. United Way Alternative Spring Break has offered thousands of young people the opportunity to do meaningful service since inception.

Official sponsors of "Spring Fix" include AT&T and State Farm(R).

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.
