Local news: It’s Raheem DeVaughn day


May 5 is “Raheem DeVaughn Day.” (Astrid Riecken/FTWP)
Today at 3 p.m., mayor Vincent Gray will honor hometown R&B hero Raheem DeVaughn for his work with Washington youth and his education efforts to help fight HIV/AIDS by declaring May 5 “Raheem DeVaughn Day” and presenting the singer with a key to the city.

Here at Click Track, we’d probably give DeVaughn our Capital Bike Share key, our Amazon password and our SmarTrip card, if he asked nicely — i.e., we’re fans.

We profiled DeVaughn back in 2008 and checked back in before he dropped his his 2010 album “The Love & War MasterPeace.” We liked what we heard and so did the Recording Academy, who nominated it for a Grammy. Alas, he didn’t win. But that leaves room on his mantle for the key to the city. Congrats, Raheem.

(Listen to some of our favorite Raheem DeVaughn songs, after the jump.)
