New Jersey Attorney General Peter C. Harvey will be joined by Latin Music Sensation, Newark Native and Arts High School/Newark graduate Frankie Negron to host a rally to encourage Latino voters, including students to cast their vote on Election Day.

The Attorney General and Negron will be joined by Barringer High School Principal Carmen Ruiz and other officials.

Negron taped a Public Service Announcement (PSA) in September for the “BE POWERFUL, BE HEARD” campaign. Negron’s PSA and other Emmy nominated voting PSA’s are a component of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002, a federal law providing for federal monies to assist states in upgrading voting equipment, election procedures and education and outreach. Through HAVA, the Office of the Attorney General has sponsored a number of outreach initiatives designed to educate New Jerseyan’s about the importance of voting and voter registration.

Negron, who performs frequently on stages across the United States and Latin America, is also an accomplished songwriter as well as a singer. He has an impressive catalogue of original compositions. Three of Negron’s records sold over a million copies worldwide for WEA Latina. He has numerous Platinum Record awards and his music dominates the airwaves of many Latin American countries.
