MTV will celebrate the Januay 20th inauguration of new President Barack Obama with “Be the Change Inaugural Ball” celebrating young voter turnout and volunteer services. The ball will take place at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center and feature “leading artists, celebrities and government officials” who will be named soon. The ball will be simulcast live across all the MTV platforms. “Over the last year and culminating in this election, we have seen a groundswell of engagement and a refreshed spirit of activism from young people,” MTV general manager Stephen Friedman said. “We want to celebrate young people across the nation who are answering the call and working to make changes in their communities and beyond.”
