Keyshia Coles Sings For FiOS Fans


R&B superstar recording artist Keyshia Coles last Tuesday helped Verizon sing the praises of New York consumers who have recently signed up for its FIOS TV service during an invitation-only concert in New York City on Dec. 15.

Nearly 600 new FiOS TV customers from the New York area (and a Wire correspondent) were given free tickets to the hush-hush concert at Manhattan's Hiro Ballroom and Lounge as part of a promotional stunt developed by Verizon and Black Entertainment Television.

Coles, who third album (A Different Me) dropped earlier that day, is BET's biggest star: reality show Keyshia Coles: The Way It Is averaged 1.7 million viewers in its third season.

Verizon said it may hold other events in the future to thank New Yorkers for switching to FiOS TV, but nothing is currently scheduled.
