We’ve finally got something for you to put on that empty calendar! NJ stars are uniting to help the Garden State in the JERSEY 4 JERSEY concert on April 22 at 7 PM. The virtual mega event will benefit the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund and will feature a lot of Jersey natives and residents, like Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and Halsey banding together to help locals who’ve been most affected by COVID-19.
The JERSEY 4 JERSEY lineup includes Halsey, Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, SZA, Charlie Puth, and Tony Bennett, with appearances by local celebs Saquon Barkley, Danny DeVito, Whoopi Goldberg, Chelsea Handler, Kelly Ripa, Jon Stewart and more. The concert will be broadcast on Apple Music and AppleTV worldwide, on Sirius XM’s E Street Radio (currently free on its app), and locally on ABC, WPIX, News12, NJTV, and radio station 1010 WINS, WCBS 880, CBS-FM WFAN, Alt 92.3, Q104.3 and New York’s Country 94.7.
Interspersed with the celeb action and the concert, the event will also feature accounts from frontline workers and NJ residents been impacted by the pandemic.
“We look forward to the day when Prudential Center’s stage lights will be bright once again,” said Sean Saadeh, EVP of Entertainment at Prudential Center. “But until that day arrives, we are proud to see so many artists who have graced our stage will perform in the JERSEY 4 JERSEY broadcast fundraiser benefiting COVID-19 related causes for New Jersey communities. Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Charlie Puth, Halsey, SZA, and Chelsea Handler are all Prudential Center alumni who will use their voices, platform and celebrity on Wednesday night to do good in New Jersey communities that matter so much our organization.”
“The collection of artists and entertainers – including Prudential Center alumni Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Charlie Puth, Halsey and more – that will lend their voices in support of communities affected by the COVID-19 crisis in New Jersey is impressive and truly inspiring,” said New Jersey Devils President Jake Reynolds. “The Devils organization and Prudential Center take tremendous pride in being New Jersey’s only professional sports team and home of sports and entertainment in the state. While we cannot open our doors to the best fans in the world today, we are thrilled the JERSEY 4 JERSEY broadcast will bring live entertainment into their homes as our community heals.”
Will Bon Jovi have to change his tune from “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” to something like “Who Says You Can’t Leave Home”? We’re waiting to see. Speaking of the rocker, he virtually dropped into a kindergarten class in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida this week. He recently wrote a coronavirus inspired song “Do What You Can” to help lift spirits during this difficult time and challenged his Facebook followers to write the lyrics to a second verse. He loved the examples from this class so much that he dropped by to sing their lyrics to them as a reward. #JerseyStrong
