Rihanna Will Rock Obama Inaugural Ball

Rihanna, who previously made a customary standout style statement at Z100’s Annual Jingle Ball Concert, plans to rock the nation’s capital on President-elect Barack Obama’s Inauguration Night and help feed millions at the same time.


The 20-year-old Grammy winner is set to perform for the Recording Industry Association of America’s Presidential Inauguration Charity Ball, to benefit Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization.

A source revealed: “Rihanna’s always willing to help out. She’s a good girl.”

Vicki Escarra, who is the president and CEO of Feeding America, said: “We could not be happier that Rihanna will be performing at the Inauguration charity ball to benefit Feeding America.”

She added: “Rihanna’s involvement will help raise awareness about the prevalence of hunger in America and help bring more aid to the 36 million Americans who do not always know where they will find their next meal.”

Rihanna promises to be in stellar company come Jan. 20. Sting will be performing at the Creative Coalition ball, while Kanye West is said to be in talks to perform for the Impact Film Fund.
