Let’s just go ahead and proclaim June 18 as National Cher Day! In addition to today’s official release of her fantastic new single/summer anthem “Woman’s World,” which she will perform on NBC’s The Voice finale tonight, the incomparable entertainer has announced that on June 30…take a deep breath…she will perform a concert during New York Pride. Gay gasp!
The award-winning legend will perform her new single, as well as a selection of her older hits during the Dance on the Pier. The annual end-of-Pride concert traditionally attracts A-list icons to the stage, with Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and the late Whitney Houston having wowed New York Pride revelers in past years, but a performer of Cher’s stature is certainly in a league of her own.
“NYC Pride is thrilled to welcome Cher to the stage of this year’s Dance on the Pier,” says Chris Frederick, managing director of NYC Pride. “Her performance will be one of the most memorable in the history of this world-class party.” No kidding.
Cher’s still-untitled album is due September 24, but it’s available for pre-order today on Amazon, iTunes and Cher.com.
Cher just won’t stop giving today. The entertainer has just announced that she will participate in a 30 minute livestream chat that will be broadcast globally at new.livestream.com tonight around her appearance on The Voice. She plans to tweet throughout the evening so if you have a burning question for the superstar, send it ahead of time on Twitter using #CherLivestream or during the event using #AskCher.
