Jay-Z To Salute Obama

Jay-Z will salute President-elect Barack Obama with a one-night concert, entitled "An Evening with Jay-Z in Concert on The Eve of Change," at Washington, D.C.'s, Warner Theater on Jan. 19. The MC will perform for approximately 1,847 fans while backed by a full band.

Jay-Z Z campaigned for Obama last fall on the "Heart of the City" tour with Mary J. Blige and released a single, "History" in celebration of Obama's presidential victory, as well.
