Kelly Rowland (33), visited the nation’s capital, lending her celebrity for a good cause. On Tuesday (April 8th), the singer was spotted in Washington, DC on Capitol Hill at the Cannon House Office Building.
She spoke at an event hosted by The Taco Bell Foundation for Teens and the Boys and Girls Clubs for America. They announced the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens’ intention to provide $30 million to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
The Destiny’s Child singer was dressed for spring, a conservative black floral dress, cream caridigan and pumps. Kelly’s handlers, along with her manager/fiance, Tim Witherspoon were also in attendance.
Other speakers included: House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio; Brian Niccol, president of Taco Bell U.S. and chairman of the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens; Jim Clark, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America; and Kiana Knolland, Boys and Girls Clubs of America Youth of the Year for 2013-2014.
Close to a year after the release of her ‘Talk A Good Game’ album, Kelly is already ramping up for a new album. In a recent interview with Billboard, she shared:
I’m at the very very beginning stages of the record. We’re at the point now where we are all talking – writers [and] producers – we’re all excited. There are fresh ideas coming into the studio right now. We’re trying different beats. It’s a really great start.
She adds that she’s already snagged Oscar-nominated singer/producer Pharrell and hopes that Timbaland will join her:
Pharrell [Williams] is on board. We already talked about it. I’d love for Timbaland to be on board. We’ve had discussions as well. I want to try to some new talent as well. There’s so much new talent… There’s somebody out there with something new to give and I’d love to tap into that as well.
