Melissa Etheridge Set To Perform At New York World Pride Closing Ceremony

If you’re a fan of Melissa Etheridge, you might consider heading to the Big Apple this summer. The 57-year-old singer has been tapped to perform at the WorldPride 2019 closing ceremony planned for Sunday, June 30 from 7–10pm in Times Square.

“That night, Times Square will serve as a home to a multitude of LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies on a truly momentous evening of love, pride, and community — capping what I’m sure will be an extraordinary month of celebrations,” Etheridge said in a press release.

Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. Personally, I love the tracks “Come To My Window,” “I’m The Only One,” and “I Wanna Come Over.”

New York City will definitely be hella busy this summer. Not only is WorldPride taking place but so is Stonewall 50– a celebration of the golden anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.

“Over 4 million people will descend upon New York City for the largest LGBTQIA+ gathering in our history,” said Chris Frederick, NYC Pride’s Managing Director. “We look forward to closing out WorldPride in celebration and in commemoration of our storied history and our invaluable collected experiences as a community.”
