Gen44 is happy to announce that B.o.B will be our featured musical guest for our National Gen44 Summit Kick Off Concert with President Obama.  If you are a fan of his first two hit singles “Airplanes” and “Nothin’ On You,” you will want to be there to see him perform LIVE at DAR Constitution Hall on September 30th in Washington, DC from 6 to 9 pm.

What better way to kick off our Gen44 Summit than with the breakout artist of 2010. B.o.B’s album, “The Adventures of Bobby Ray,” debuted #1 on the Billboard 200, making him only the 13th male solo artist to have a debut album at #1 on its first week. B.o.B has received nominations for his album and singles by BET and MTV along with many others. B.o.B will soon join Eminem, Drake, Kanye West, Linkin Park, Paramore and Usher as a performer at the 2010 MTV VMAs.

Don’t miss this opportunity to join us at our first National Gen44 Kick Off Concert and Summit. The concert is only the beginning of what will be a three-day gathering of the next generation of leaders. Engaging our generation means empowering the President and this Gen44 Summit marks the start of something new. It marks the first time this has been done here at the DNC, so set the precedent and join us in DC!

Summit Packages and Individual Kick Off Concert Tickets are available now. Don’t wait to get your seat.
