Some good news for those of you thinking of attending Brighton Pride, as Carly Rae Jepsen will be headlining the event.
Brighton is one of the biggest Prides in the UK, so this is no small feat for Carly Rae. Most of you will probably remember her from her hit song Call Me Maybe.
Brighton Pride said in a statement: “A global superstar we always love to call, Carly Rae Jepsen is a chart-topping sensation, delivering timeless pop tunes that demand our attention. Her addictive worldwide hit Call Me Maybe became the best selling global record of 2012 and set the glorious tone for a career that has seen her albums Tug Of War, Emotion and the platinum selling Kiss span nations, capture fans hearts and deliver a soundtrack of sunshine-fuelled feel good tunes across the world.”
“And so it is with great pleasure that Brighton Pride can announce that Carly Rae Jepsen will be performing at the Brighton Pride Festival at Preston Park on Saturday 6th August. Yes, Carly Rae Jepsen, the star with over 1 billion YouTube views, Number 1s in over 47 countries with over 18 million copies sold, 2 Grammy nominations and a coveted AMA’s Best New Artist Award is coming to celebrate with us at the UK’s biggest and best Pride Festival.”
“We can’t wait to lip-sync with Carly! It’s going to be E·MO·TION-al as the pop idol heads to the seaside for a Pride performance destined to ensure we have a good time with sunshine on our shoulders. After all, when a pop sensation like Carly Rae Jepsen sings they really like you, it’s only pertinent and fabulous that we join the lip-sync action and welcome her to our city with open arms – Brighton Pride style!”
So, truly a great treat for any parade attendees in Brighton this year, as you will be treated to a bonafide star this year. Here’s hoping for excellent acts for both Brighton and London pride events.
