Celebvocate: Ashanti glams it up for Boys & Girls Clubs


Ashanti, 2010. (AP/Dan Steinberg)


An occasional look at the show-biz luminaries attempting to do good in Washington. Tuesday's visitor: Ashanti.

Occasion: Media event for Boys & Girls Clubs kids who've made an outstanding contribution to society.

Site: A luxury suite at the Hyatt Regency, Capitol Hill.

Bona fides: R&B singer, record producer, songwriter, first-ever National Youth of the Year Ambassador for the Boys & Girls Clubs.

What she wants: Attention for the program and its national sponsor, Tupperware, which pledged $100,000 for scholarships.

How she looked: Glamorous -- violet dress, black Giuseppe Zanotti heels, diamonds.

Quote: "I had my very first talent show at the Boys & Girls Club. I had four dancers lined up, but they all got scared and quit on me."
