Obama Loves Him Some Brutha
Local R&B group Brutha [MySpace] has a very good reason to be merry this holiday season, since they were just asked to perform at President-elect Barack Obama's upcoming inauguration. The call came while the cameras were rolling for their new BET reality show, and Fox followed up with a story. The group is comprised of the five Harrell brothers from Los Angeles, and according to the staffer who called up the guys to give them the invite, Obama is a huge fan of their work. Brutha is signed to Def Jam and their album--coincidentally?--comes out tomorrow. Brutha is obviously a far less controversial selection for inclusion in Obama's inaugural ceremony than at least one of his other invitees. Unless of course Boyz II Men are back together.
