R&B Diva Monica will headline the annual Battle of the Bands on Jan. 28 at the Georgia Dome.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports: "eight college marching bands from historically black colleges and universities will showcase their music and showmanship at this annual invitational event, but it will also spotlight the talents of Grammy-winning Atlanta singer and songwriter Monica."
Monica will perform at the Battle of the Bands on Jan. 28, just weeks before the scheduled release of her seventh album, New Life. You can get a taste of the new album on the Georgia native’s website, which features the video for the track “Until It’s Gone.” You can pre-order the album there, too.
Tickets for the event, which begins at 3 p.m. Jan. 28, are available at Ticketmaster or at the Georgia Dome Box Office. Tickets are $10-$12.
