As everyone is aware, New Jersey was hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy, and has been in recovery mode ever since the storm. One young victim of the storm, Christine Nagy, sought help for her hometown of Sea Bright, NJ by asking Train to shine some light on her area, and in response, the band performed a very special show to raise money for the area. Christmas In Sea Bright will be airing all day on VH1 (a new piece of the story will air at the top of each hour on VH1 from 8 AM to 10 PM ET/PT), but in case you missed any of it, we have the full series of clips from their show.

GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING BAND TRAIN TO HELP RESTORE SEA BRIGHT, NEW JERSEY WITH PERFORMANCE AT LOCAL FIRE HOUSE DECEMBER 5
“Christmas in Sea Bright” on VH1 to benefit Sandy relief efforts including
Sea Bright Rising, a local nonprofit
December 3, 2012 – Grammy award-winning band Train will host a special intimate and private performance for Sea Bright, New Jersey first responders and residents at the Sea Bright Firehouse on Wednesday, December 5th in response to a young fan’s heartfelt video message. The performance will be filmed by VH1 for a series of vignettes airing throughout Christmas Day to help raise awareness for local non-profit Sea Bright Rising.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the band received a heartfelt email from a local 15-year-old fan named Charlotte Nagy. She made a video about how the storm affected the town of Sea Bright that really moved the band. In response to their young fan, to all affected by Hurricane Sandy and to the people who have been working around the clock to get New Jersey back on its feet, Train’s performance will help benefit Sea Bright Rising, a non-profit created to rebuilding the town of Sea Bright and helping the residents who have lost so much in addition to other Sandy relief efforts.
Throughout Christmas Day, VH1 will air “Christmas in Sea Bright,” a series of short vignettes that will share the holiday spirit behind the story of how a young local girl reached out to a major international recording artist and how it makes a positive impact on one community devastated by Sandy. Train has been featured in VH1?s “Behind The Music” and “Storytellers” series and is a longtime supporter of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. A new piece of the story will air at the top of each hour on VH1 from 8 AM to 10 PM ET/PT.
