SWEET BRIAR, VA (WWBT) -

Singer Rachel Platten performed at Sweet Briar College Saturday night.

The college was announced as the winner of the #CheggMusic 101 series, and the winner was decided through the online contest.

"This win has a particularly special meaning for Sweet Briar, which nearly closed its doors in 2015. Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” became the rallying anthem for students and alumnae, who raised more than $12 million in a successful campaign that overturned the previous administration’s decision to close the College," the school's website said.

Sweet Briar also received a $10,000 grant for its music department from Chegg's David B. Goldberg Music Scholarship fund.

The contest was hosted by Chegg in partnership with bareMinerals Blemish Remedy.
