The 2010 Michigan Pride Diversity Festival will welcome country artist Chely Wright, who recently came out publicly, to the Mainstage on June 12 at Burchard Park. Monique Goch, outreach director of Michigan Pride, announced this week that Wright will also be featured as the Grand Marshal of the Michigan Pride march and is to perform at the Capitol earlier in the day in downtown Lansing. This will be Wright’s first time performing at a gay Pride festival since coming out recently. Last week, she appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to discuss her decision.
Wright, whose hits include chart-toppers “Single White Female” and “Shut Up and Drive,” has recently launched her seventh album, “Lifted Off the Ground,” which coincided with the release of her autobiography, “Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer.”
