Celebrating 20 years in the music industry as a Grammy Award winning, internationally-known artist, singer, songwriter, producer, dancer, actress, activist, and philanthropist, Mýa will close out St. Louis PrideFest on Sunday on the Mastercard Entertainment Stage. Her high octane performance is presented by 95.5 The Lou.

 

"I am so excited for St. Louis PrideFest and if you know anything about me, I love giving LIFE on stage, so expect to be entertained and uplifted with classics, brand new music, and a bit of cunty hunty," proclaimed the diva.

Mýa's remake of LaBelle’s “Lady Marmalade,” which was featured in Baz Luhrman’s “Moulin Rouge”, won the Grammy Award for “Best Pop Collaboration.” She performed with Lil’ Kim, Christina Aguilera, P!nk, and Missy Eliot for this award. Mýa has also won numerous MTV VMA awards, as well as the NAACP Image Award. In addition to her success with music, she was a finalist on season 9 of Dancing with the Stars.

 

Mýa is deeply committed to activism and philanthropy, having founded TMATF: The Mýa Arts & Tech Foundation, which aims to provide disadvantaged youth growth and opportunity through education. She has worked to improve the lives of LGBTQIA+ people throughout her career by aiding in the global fight against AIDS, assisting homeless LGBTQIA+ youth, participating in the NOH8 campaign, and partnering with the Human Rights Campaign for #LoveConquersHate.

 

"PrideFest to me is a collective effort of community coming together to represent love, oneness, equality, honoring individual truth, a community of pioneers and fighters, and celebrating each victory pertaining to breaking barriers whether personally or politically," Mýa explained. "And of course celebrating it all with amazing, vibrant beings that support each other. It's my favorite time of year!"

"Pride to me means being proud of who you are, and letting nothing and no one discourage you from your truth, what feels right to YOU, what makes you feel alive," she continued. "Living in your light and owning it regardless of what the rest of the world thinks, does, and preaches."

 

Earlier this year, Mýa unveiled the release of her brand new, highly anticipated 13th studio project, "T.K.O." (The Knock Out). The sexy, sultry, and soulful R&B album is the global icon’s 9th studio album, and her very own label Planet 9’s 9th independent project, which fuses elements of 70's & 90's R&B with sonics from today's contemporary urban music sound, that is proving to be a knockout smash hit world-wide.

 

“It’s truly been an amazing, educational, and humbling journey these past 20 years in the music business and I am truly grateful for every experience, encounter and everyone who has been a part of this ride," she writes on her website. "My passion and love for music has never been greater and I can assure you, I am just getting started and the best of me has yet to come."

 

Mýa, presented by 95.5 The Lou, will perform on the Mastercard Entertainment Stage at St. Louis PrideFeston Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.
