"Music education played an important role throughout my childhood and is something that remains very close to my heart," said multi-platinum superstar Jason Derulo. "I'm honored for the opportunity to team with VH1
Save The Music Foundation this summer in support of a cause that's so dear to me. Come out and join us in the Hamptons!"
On Saturday, August 8th, Jason Derulo is headlining VH1 Save The Music Foundation's Hamptons Live benefit at a private residence in Sagaponack. From 8 to 11 p.m. attendees will hear hits from Derulo like "Want To Want Me," which you probably haven't been able to get out of your head recently. The musician, who released his fourth studio album, "Everything is 4," on Tuesday, June 2nd, can also be seen this summer as a judge on FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance
." The evening will also include music by DJs Hannah Bronfman
and Brendan Fallis
VH1 Save The Music Foundation Board Member Julie Macklowe and her husband Billy are co-chairing the event, along with last year's honoree, Charlie Walk
, EVP at Republic Records, and his wife Lauran.
"As VH1 Save The Music Foundation nears its 20th anniversary, our commitment to preserving music education in public schools is made possible by the support of our amazing community," said Tom Calderone, president of VH1. "We're so grateful to host this event for the second year with the support of people like Jason, Julie, Billy, Charlie and Lauran."
The Foundation's Hamptons Benefit celebrates the importance of music in the schools. In 2014, Hamptons Live raised $350,000, which allowed for a generous donation of Taylor guitars to be made locally to Bridgehampton School. Once again, Save the Music will make another community donation in conjunction with this year's Hamptons Live event.
Tickets to Hamptons Live start at $500.
