DINAH JANE # SAT. 6/29 5:50 P.M.



Pop singer Dinah Jane is excited to make her St. Louis PrideFest debut courtesy of HOT104.1. The former girl group songstress takes the Stonewall Main Stage presented by Bayer on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at 5:50 p.m.


"I can promise you this, you can expect a good ole time with your girl," says Dinah of her very first solo appearance in the STL. "I'm so excited to be amongst a community of outgoing, bold and lavishing beings. It’s my favorite place to be!"  


Dinah is best known as a founding member of Fifth Harmony (5H), the all-girl pop group that formed on "The X Factor" in 2011. The soulful vocalist and her 5H band mates Ally BrookeNormani KordeiLauren Jauregui, and Camila Cabello shot to stardom with three chart topping albums. In 2018, Dinah launched her solo career with the single "Bottled Up."


As a member of 5H, Dinah enjoyed chart success with the group's first two albums, 2015's Reflection, and 2016's 7/27. The albums peaked in the Top Five of the Billboard 200, and spawned the hit singles "Worth It" and "Work from Home," respectively. Following the departure of Cabello in 2016, 5H released their third studio album, the eponymous Fifth Harmony, in 2017. Buoyed by the lead single "Down," it debuted at number four on the Billboard 200.


Dinah and 5H are vocal supporters of the LGBTQ community, having performed together at LA Pride, making appearances at gay clubs, and delivering a 2017 video message of support to their LGBTQ fan base: “Collectively, we would like to say: Love yourself and be yourself. It’s beautiful."


"The environment is so full of life," Dinah explains of PrideFest. "They make you feel so special and the baddest woman in the house! They can bring so much confidence out of you because that’s the energy that resonates from them. It’s amazing! If you ain’t got a group of gay friends/ family around, you ain’t doing it right. (I have a lot of gay uncles so I learned a thing or two from them!)" 


Also in 2017, Dinah was featured on RedOne's single "Boom Boom," along with Daddy Yankee and French Montana. By May 2018, 5H went on indefinite hiatus to allow the individual members to pursue their own projects. That same year, Dinah signed a recording contract with L.A. Reid's Hitco label and issued her debut solo single, "Bottled Up," featuring Marc E. Bassy and Ty Dolla $ign.


"I think what resonates is the message you share in your music and the feeling of being free," says Dinah of her appeal to the LGBTQ community. "You've gotta be 100% REAL. Especially when it comes to performing, you’ve got to have an organic connection with them, or they’re not buying it."


And as for Dinah's personal motto when it comes to PRIDE?


"Stand 10 toes down. Never let anyone’s opinion shift what you believe," she says.


The 40th Anniversary St. Louis PrideFest will be held the weekend of June 29-30, 2019 in downtown St Louis. Past attendance has seen over 200,000 people in Soldier's Memorial Park and at Sunday's annual Pride Parade presented by MasterCard (on Market Street from 8th to Union Station at 12 noon).
