Pop star Nelly Furtado, modern rockers the Goo Goo Dolls, and R&B newcomer Glenn Lewis will all be on hand to perform Feb. 26 when Rock The Vote stages its annual awards ceremony. As reported earlier this week, the organization will honor Dave Matthews and Destiny's Child with it's Patrick Lippert Award for their activism. Other awards will be presented to "The West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin and Pam Horovitz, president of the National Association of Record Merchandisers.

Tickets for the event at Los Angeles' House of Blues, set at $150 each, are available through the Blue Room Group either online or by calling 310-491-1401.

Furtado will perform tomorrow (Feb. 14) and Friday at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre, and Monday during the Hallmark Olympic Celebration series in Salt Lake City. Her Burn in the Spotlight tour in support of her debut DreamWorks album, "Whoa Nelly!," will resume March 1 in Boston after a short break.

On Feb. 22, the Goo Goo Dolls will perform their own Olympic concert, which is the band's only other scheduled appearance. As previously reported, the band's next album, "Gutterflower," is due this year via Warner Bros. Lewis, meanwhile, is on the road in support of his Epic debut, "World Outside My Window," and will perform tomorrow in Sunrise, Fla.

Founded in 1990, Rock The Vote is dedicated to protecting freedom of expression and empowering young people to change their world. Past recipients of the Patrick Lippert Award -- named for a late Rock The Vote president who spearheaded the organization's 1991-92 voter registration drive -- include Mary J. Blige, Neil Young, Queen Latifah, Carlos Santana, Bono, Pearl Jam, Chuck D., Sheryl Crow, L.L. Cool J., and the Beastie Boys. For more information, visit the Rock The Vote Web site.
