District native Wale will be the entertainment of choice for D.C. United before their home opener this season.  Saturday April 3rd, he will be the headliner for the “It Takes More Concert Series,” a series of pre-game performances designed to support local acts and to highlight various organizations in the community.  At this game, the team  will take on the New England Revolution and the organization to be featured is the DC chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

Wale, who was first featured in the “Unsigned Hype” column of Source magazine in 2005, has recently seen much success with his debut album Attention Deficit (which is a GREAT album by the way!).  He’s performed at the VMA’s and toured with Jay-Z, but is bringing it back home for a FREE concert open to the public..you don’t want to miss this one!  It’s for a great cause as well.  Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing safe shelter for people all around the world, and they’re even going to be building in conjunction with D.C. United and other sponsors later this season.

The concert will start at 6 pm on the Armory Mall located on the west side of RFK Stadium, and the game will begin at 7:30 pm in the stadium.

Over the span of her collegiate career, Courtney began to realize that the District had grown on her within the few short years she had been here. She loves tv, food, shopping, and all things “girly.” She looks forward to experiencing everything the city has to offer. Read why Courtney loves DC .
