Energizer Teams Up with Jordin Sparks to Help Save The Music plus an iTunes Giveaway

Music and all of the arts are such an important part of our children's education and growth. Sadly when budgets are tight, the art's are usually the first things to get cut in our public schools. We saw it first hand last year in our Connecticut town when the music program at our intermediate school was significantly cut. The VH1 Save the Music Foundation is dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools, while also raising awareness about the importance of music as part of a complete education. The Foundation has provided more than $47 million in new musical instruments to 1,750 public schools in over 100 cities around the United States.

This summer Energizer is teaming up with VH1 Save the Music Ambassador Jordin Sparks. On July 28, Grammy®-nominated platinum-recording artist Jordin Sparks will perform at a surprise location in New York City to raise awareness for Energizer’s partnership with the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. The venue will be announced July 28 and it is free and open to the public. Sparks’ “pop-up” performance will kick off the series of grants Energizer and the VH1 Save The Music Foundation will make to schools around the country in need of musical instruments.


You do not have to wait till then to get involved. Now through August 12, 2011 for every new “LIKE” on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page Energizer will donate $1 to help restore instrumental music education through the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

In addition to powering music education in America’s public schools, Energizer is also powering Americans’ playlists. Right now in stores, specially-marked Energizer products contain a special code so when someone buys three participating products, he or she can go online to www.nowthatspositivenergy.com/music and redeem the codes for a $10 iTunes Gift Card.

For more information on Energizer’s partnership with VH1 Save The Music, visit www.nowthatspositivenergy.com/music or www.facebook.com/energizerbunny and click on the VH1 Save The Music tab. You can also follow @EnergizerBunny or #EnergizerSTM on Twitter for the latest news and hints about Jordin's secret location.

  30. Music is a great way to express creativity and inspiration. It gets out aggression, rage, and stress. If children were able to express how they feel with music, they wouldn't need to start fights, pick up a gun, or turn to less-than-flattering ways to express themselves.

  31. I think it is a great creative tool for the children and it is important to keep this tool in the schools.

  51. Music encourages and stimulates a different kind of creativity. My kids school does not have a music program at all -it was cut. Two years ago they had a fiddler come in and give each class a series of lessons. It was fascinating to see the kids learn. And, I think an appreciate of music, helps you appreciate life in different ways. Ok, thanks for the great question!

  52. I think it's important to keep music in our public schools because learning and performing music helps kids learn discipline and cooperation/teamwork.

  60. MUSIC and All Arts - are very important. It helps to create a well rounded person - as school should not just be about English, Science, Math, or even Sports. Every child excels in a different area.

  72. It's extremely important to keep music in educational curriculum! It's a creative outlet, it's a basis for education, it encourages brain activity and maximizes the brain's absorption of information. It's stress relieving and encourages team work and active learning!

  91. Music keeps the program of study well-rounded. I think schools would be remiss to lose the value of that and the value that music itself presents. Who doesn't remember some of the songs learned in school music class? It touches you, and it stays with you. I still remember "Down in My Heart" from grade school...and that was many, many, many...well you get the idea. :)
