Last year, the Global Citizen Festival brought major acts such as Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Alicia Keys to the stage in New York City’s Central Park. Now, after three years in NYC, the event is expanding to Washington, D.C., for Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day, a free event to be held Saturday, April 18, on the National Mall.
R&B superstars Usher and Mary J. Blige are among the headliners, who also include No Doubt, Fall Out Boy, Train and My Morning Jacket. Will.i.am will host alongside veteran journalist Soledad O’Brien, while Common and Nigerian artist D’Banj are set to make special appearances. -(Visit thisisrnb.com for more.)
