Inaya Day at Night
Ms Day has performed on Broadway (understudy to Stephanie Mills in "The Wiz") and starred in the Dorothy role on the road. She is an accomplished song writer and has written songs recorded by the likes of Missy Elliott, Bootsy Collins and Randy Crawford. As a session singer, she has appeared on tracks by Michael Jackson, Queen Latifah, Al Green and many others.
It was indeed a privilege to have interviewed Inaya Day this past December:
This amazing Billboard-charting artist will kick off a series of vocal performances by various dance-music artists at Icon, courtesy of Barbara Sobel and Sobel Promotions. There is no cover charge on May 31. "Drink specials and GoGo Gods will make Club ICON the only place to be as we celebrate Pride!" boasts the club proudly.
Of course, Buddy Beaverhausen will be there and hopes to finally meet the diva in person. Dj Ian Ford will be in the house, bringing up the energy and kicking off LGBT Pride in high style. This will be a major event for June, which is LGBT Pride Month. Manhattan's Pride celebration (June 29) will traditionally climax with the pier dance followed by fireworks. The diva for the annual dance on the pier will be Demi Lovato. Frankly, I much prefer seeing -- and hearing --Inaya Day!
"Club ICON in Astoria Queens is the ONLY Place to be!" exclaims Barbara Sobel. Absolutely right on! And celebrate the Queens LGBT Pride March the following day, June 1st.
