Tomorrow, following the inauguration of  Donald Trump, the Women’s March on Washington will take place with the intent of sending a strong message to the incoming Presidential administration: protect the right of women, their families and communities. It was announced that Janelle Monae, Maxwell and Angelique Kidjo will perform at the March. Additional performers include Toshi Reagon, Samantha Ronson, Emily Wells, DJ Rekha, MC Lyte, St. Beauty, Beverly Bond, Alia Sharief, DJ Rimarkable, Amber Coffman, the Indigo Girls, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Climbing Poe Tree. In addition, Questlove, Grimes, Matt and Kim, KT Tunstall, Neko Case, Rakim, TV on the Radio and Lila Downs will participate in an Artists Table, which will feature a diverse group of artists, musicians, writers and creative individuals who support the Women’s March on Washington and over 200 Sister Marches across the country. The March is lead by a national coordinating committee, volunteer organizers representing all 50 states and numerous partner organizations. Those partners include Amnesty International, EMILY’s List, GLADD, Girls Who Code, Muslim Women’s Alliance, Planned Parenthood, United We Dream and others. Those who think actress KeKe  Palmer lacks vocal chops should listen to her cover of Beyoncé’s hit “Love On Top.” While cruising in her vehicle, the star felt a “vibe” and began performing an a cappella version of the catchy song. She shared a video of the performance on Instagram. The cover serves as positive news for Palmer, who revealed earlier this month that she was sexually abused during her childhood. Is singer Chrisette Michele’s star slowly fading?  After enduring backlash for accepting an offer to perform at the inauguration of President elect Donald Trump, it looks like more are expressing their non support of her decision. Among them, director Spike Lee, who via an Instagram post revealed that because of her decision, he’ll reconsider using her single “Black Girl Magic” in a forthcoming Netflix series. Reportedly, the performance is the same slot turned down by singer Jennifer Holiday earlier this week. The performance is worth $750k. Today, Barack Obama vacated the White House after serving eight years as President of the United States. Because of his admiration for the hip hop community, he gained many supporters. Among them, rapper Kendrick Lamar, who sent his well wishes to Mr. Obama via Twitter. In addition to Lamar, other prominent figures in hip hop sent goodbyes and well wishes, including Swizz Beatz, Janelle Monae and T.I. Rapper Big Sean will be making moves with comedian Aziz Ansair for his debut on “Saturday Night Live” tomorrow. In a promotional clip, “SNL” cast member Kate McKinnon refers to herself as “Medium Kate.” Sean replies, “That’s not how it works” before Ansair, who will host, loudly repeats it for emphasis. The comedian also shoots his own version of Sean’s “Moves” visual in a separate teaser while strolling through Studio 8H before taking a call from his mother. Big Sean’s appearance on the show precedes the release of his fourth  studio effort “I Decided”, which arrives on Feb. 3.
