NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A 16-year-old girl from Rumson, New Jersey has helped bring storm-ravaged Sea Bright the gift of music.
Train will be performing in Sea Bright on Wednesday to raise money for the Sandy relief effort, after the band’s music was featured prominently in a documentary filmed by Charlotte Nagy.

“It’s pretty surreal for me,” Nagy told WCBS 880’s Wayne Cabot of all the attention her 33-minute video has received. “It was just kind of my instinct I guess to go down to the beach before the storm and show people what it looked like before.”
Nagy said she wanted to show the world what the barrier island looked like before and after the storm to let people see firsthand the devastation brought on by Sandy.

“Rumson is a mile away from Sea Bright so Sea Bright is very much devastated and there are some great relief efforts like Sea Bright Rising with some great people who are working hard to raise money to get it back to where it was and put everyone back on their feet again,” she told WCBS 880’s Cabot.
Nagy said despite the devastation all across the area now, she is confident the Jersey Shore will return to what it once was.
“We’re Jersey Strong and together we’re going to rebuild our state,” Nagy said.
