Mystery Newsmaker July 21 & 22

Listen to WTOP this Saturday and Sunday morning during the 8am hour for the
WTOP Mystery Newsmaker Contest

We’ll play the voice of someone you’ve heard in the news this week on WTOP.
Be the first caller at 855-885-1035 to correctly identify the mystery newsmaker and win two tickets to see Angelique Kidjo joined by Femi Kuti and The Positive Force on Tuesday August 7th at Wolf Trap. 

In her newest project, Angelique Kidjo reinterprets The Talking Heads’ classic album, Remain in Light (1980), adding electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals. Cross-pollinating the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk, and jazz, Kidjo is nothing short of exhilarating and transcendent. Performing songs from Remain in Light, as well as originals, she is joined by renowned Afrobeat artist Femi Kuti and The Positive Force whose shows are filled with “energetic big-band arrangements…and Femi out front wailing from the heart and giving hope to the voiceless” (The Boston Globe).
