(AllHipHop News) Super-producer Swizz Beatz is lining up a variety of celebrity friends to support the finale of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation's 2012 Songwriters Music Series.

Swizz Beatz is hosting the special benefit, which encourages students' creativity, through production and musical composition.

The fundraiser is also being hosted to help provide students interested in music, with tools they need to be innovative in the classroom.

The event, which will take place at the Hard Rock Café New York in Times Square, will also benefit the Tri-State Save the Music Relief Fund.

The new fund will provide monetary assistance to schools impacted by Hurricane Sandy, so students can replace instruments damaged in the storm.

"New York City and the Tri-State area is my home and it's a place that constantly inspires music and creativity for myself and millions of others," Swizz Beatz said. "I'm going to bring out some friends and put on a crazy show to support the VH1 Save the Music Foundation and the creation of the Tri-State Sandy Music Relief Fund so this creativity can thrive again for kids all over the East Coast."

VH1's Save The Music Foundation's 2012 Songwriters Music Series finale will take place on Thursday, January 17.
