I recently attend the VH1 Save the Music BLU Carpet event at Son Cubano in West New York, NJ. The annual event, hosted by Rich Valdes and sponsored this year by Ciroc vodka provides a great platform for emerging performing artists to gain exposure to an influential audience and raises funds to help ensure music education remains a part of the curriculum in schools. The venue this year was the upscale, waterfront Cuban restaurant, Son Cubano which has amazing views of the Manhattan NYC skyline. There was a huge turnout with artists such as Jaclyn Rae Cetrulo, Chelley, J. Ross Parelli Murdakkh and Sensato. Some of my favorite reality show stars were there as well including Elizabeth Ann Vashisht, Angelina Pivarnik, Gina Marie and Freddie Robinson were in the audience as well.
