R&B Artist Jay Sean Headlines Third Annual Verizon Wireless My Fabulous Quince Party

British-born R&B singer/songwriter/producer Jay Sean, whose songs have reached #1 on the Billboard Top 100, will perform a private concert at this year’s My Fabulous Quince party created and hosted by Verizon Wireless and LG.  In addition, the artist will meet fans and sign autographs at select Verizon Wireless stores that host free Quince planning expos.

Eligible teenagers from select cities across the western states are invited to participate in the third annual My Fabulous Quince contest and win an incredible Quinceanera party valued at over $45,000.  The celebration includes an event planner, venue, catering for 200 guests and transportation for the winner to and from the party.  Plus, the winner and their parents will each receive the new LG Ally™ cell phone.  The company invites eligible teens from Los Angeles, San Jose, El Paso, Salt Lake City and Utah metro areas to enter the contest by visiting www.myfabulous15.com.  Teens may enter to win from August 2, 2010 and through August 29, 2010.

Teens and their families can also see Jay Sean at select Verizon Wireless stores at the company’s free Quinceanera planning expos. At the expos, teens and parents can see the latest dresses and accessories on display — complete with hair and make-up stations with stylists on hand to offer hip tips.  The fun expos also feature a free fashion runway show to enjoy.

Attendees can gain VIP access to meet Jay Sean and receive an autograph by bringing a previously used cell phone or accessory to donate to the company’s Hopeline program. HopeLine is an exclusive program of Verizon Wireless that collects, recycles and refurbishes no longer used cell phones and accessories, using the proceeds to award grants of cash, phones and free airtime to domestic violence prevention agencies.

Eligible teens can also enter to win at the in-store My Fabulous Quince entry station.  The Quince Expos and Jay Sean meet-and-greet will take place in the following cities from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM:
