While her sister and brother-in-law get down tonight (January 6) with the First Couple at their final White House party, Solange is prepping to perform at another event in Washington D.C. that'll go down just hours before President-Elect Donald Trump is sworn in.

Adding her name to the lineup for a Peace Ball (January 19), Solo is joining the likes of other celebrity hosts, performers, and attendees including fellow singer Esperanza Spalding, political activist Angela Davis, writers Alice Walker and Sonia Sanchez, commentators Van Jones and Melissa Harris-Perry, actors Danny Glover and Ashley Judd, and more.

Presented by Busboys and Poets, the 2017 Peace Ball: Voices of Hope and Resistance takes place at the National Museum of African American History and Culture and is serving as "a gathering to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of the past 4 years and the vow to continue to be the change we want to see in the world." It is a "nonpartisan event including food, open bar, live music, and dancing." All of the museum's exhibits will still be open during the event.

Meanwhile, Trump's inauguration will see the Talladega Marching Tornadoes, The Rockettes, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir (though one member has chosen to leave), and former "America's Got Talent" contestant Jackie Evancho.

Tickets can be purchased here.
