New York, NY – MTVU has joined forces with Jon Bon Jovi to give students a chance to have the rock icon perform acoustically at their 2017 commencement ceremony.
Beginning today, students can participate by tweeting their best college moments using #JBJReunionContest and tagging their school. The promotion will run through Sunday, April 23 at 11:59 p.m. with the selected school to be revealed the first week of May across all MTVU platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat. The performance will air on MTVU in June.
Bon Jovi’s new song “Reunion” from their #1 debuting album, This House Is Not For Sale, was first performed by Jon Bon Jovi in 2015 when he was invited to speak at Rutgers University’s commencement. The song, which he wrote with that graduating class in mind, is a thoughtful, optimistic send-off with inspiring lyrics until everyone meets again at their “Reunion.”
Write your song, sing along, love your life
Learn to laugh, dare to dance, touch the sky
Take pictures each step of the way
Make this the best of the rest of your days
I say, go start your own revolution
And I’ll see you at the reunion
