Usher on the Lincoln Memorial Steps in DC
Even though turkeys have yet to be cut, a slew of holiday events are quickly ushering Christmas to the District. One of the most highly coveted guest list will be TNT’s 11th annual music concert, Christmas in Washington. The holiday music special is usually attended by the President & First Lady and other DC VIPS; benefiting the National Children’s Medical Center.
Christmas in Washington will be diverse if not anything. TNT tapped talented comedian George Lopez to host, and feature performances by Usher, Mary J. Blige, Neil Diamond & Rob Thomas among others. The taping is to take place at the National Building Museum (401 F St NW # 215) on December 13th, and air on December 20th (a day before Usher’s new EP Raymond v. Raymond drops…smart).
TNT has a hard job ahead of them if they want to impress President O. The White House Music Series have a pretty impressive list of past and future performers, that have already captivated the American public. Be sure to tune in.
