Bieber and Wale nominated for BET Awards; R. Kelly's got a new "I Believe I Can Fly"; Brad Paisley concert hosts food drive
By Ally Schweitzer
- It's the showdown we've all been waiting for: Wale v. Justin Bieber. The 16-year old Canadian singer is up for BET's Best New Artist award, and he's going head to head with D.C.'s own breakout nominee Wale. Bieber, who has been known to awkwardly throw around a little hip hop lingo in his songs, is the only white solo musician nominated for an award this year, having been deemed a "crossover artist" by Stephen Hill, BET's President of Music Programing and Specials. Also nominated in the Best New Artist category: Melanie Fiona, Nicki Minaj, and Young Money. See the complete list of nominees at BET.com.
- R. Kelly's corn-spirational song "Sign of a Victory" has been chosen to be one of three official songs for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The "Bump n Grind" singer will perform the song live with South African group the Soweto Spiritual Singers at the World Cup's opening ceremony June 11th.
- If you're headed to this Saturday's Brad Paisley concert at the Lube, bring a can of food. Live Nation will be collecting donated food cans and bottled water for the Capital Area Food Bank under a tent inside the main gates. One participant will win two "premium" seat upgrades and two "meet and greet" passes.
