Nick Jonas - Nick Jonas Hosting Fundraiser For Rwandan Orphanage

Pop star Nick Jonas is helping to raise funds for an orphanage in Rwanda by hosting a benefit in New York on Tuesday (17May11).
The Jonas Brothers star has teamed up with singer/songwriter Diane Birch to stage the Stand Up & Be Counted event to boost donations to The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village, which provides accommodation, education and healthcare to vulnerable youths.
Jonas, Birch and hip-hop group The Roots will entertain guests at the fundraiser, while music executive Steve Greenberg will be honoured for his philanthropy efforts.
Tweeting about the bash on Monday (16May11), Jonas wrote, "So exited (sic) to be playing at the Stand up and be counted event tomorrow here in Nyc. Using music to do Good is what life is all about."
It will be a busy evening for The Roots - the Stand Up & Be Counted event will be their second New York benefit of the night. The Grammy winners are also due to perform at A Spring Evening, hosted by designer Donna Karan, actor Joaquin Phoenix and author Salman Rushdie, and they will end their night at the B.B. King blues club, where they will play a set to celebrate the career of hip-hop pioneer Kool Herc and the 50th birthday of rap veteran Melle Mel.
