Sources: Fenty's Inaugural Concert to Benefit D.C. Public Schools
More details are emerging about the inaugural concert Mayor Adrian M. Fenty is planning at the D.C. Armory on Jan. 18. We reported last month that Fenty was trying to land hip-hop superstar Kanye West to headline the show. Now we're hearing from sources that the mayor is also trying for singer Mary J. Blige and possibly another big name. And word has it that the money raised from the event would benefit D.C. Public Schools, which have been Fenty's top priority as mayor. The show is tentatively set to start at 6 p.m., though no word on ticket prices or how to get them. A spokeswoman for the mayor declined to comment when asked about the concert this week.
