The final headliner for this summer’s Augusta Pride has officially been confirmed. Taylor Dayne, a singer-songwriter legend will be in Augusta for their fifth Pride celebration.
One of the most successful performers to ever hit the Augusta Pride stage, Dayne will be due to perform in the Augusta Commons off Broad St. downtown — both Friday night and Saturday — during the 2014 Pride weekend festivities.
Dayne broke into the music spotlight over 25 years ago with her hit song, “Tell It to My Heart.” With three Grammy nominations, 18 Top-20 singles and over 75 million albums sold, she has continued to contribute to the music and entertainment industry to this day. Her latest album, “Satisfied,” was released in 2008. In 2011, she released her single, “Floor on Fire,” which gained her 18th top-10 single during her lengthy career.
In 2012, Dayne was also inducted into the Long Island Musician Hall of Fame alongside artists such as Billy Joel and Pat Benatar.
Dayne is no stranger to Pride stages, having performed in multiple festivals across the country, including last year’s Atlanta Pride.
With such a large success over the past two decades, Dayne could potentially bring in an even larger crowd to the still-growing Augusta Pride festival — which has been rapidly rising in attendees each year.
Dayne will be sharing the stage alongside “RuPaul’s Drag Race” stars Chad Michaels and Latrice Royale, as well as electric violinist duo Synergy — proving to be be one of the most anticipated and entertaining line-ups in Augusta Pride to date.
The outdoor performances will be taking place Friday, June 27 and Saturday, June 28 in the Augusta Commons, located in downtown Augusta, Ga. : :
