South Carolina Pride Announces Natasha Bedingfield as Headlining Musical Performer | News about concerts and music


South Carolina Pride entertainment will be presented by pop artist Natasha Bedingfield in October.

The organization announced the October 15 lineup during the last week of August, with the mega star as the main draw. The programming of the organization’s 33rd festival is carried by Sheile E., a percussionist; Crystal Waters, a 90s dance singer; and CupcakKe, a rapper from Chicago.

Bedingfield is best known for her run between 2004 and 2007, when she released the albums “Unwritten” and “Pocketful of Sunshine”. The first was an immediate success behind its single “Unwritten”. Meanwhile, “Pocketful of Sunshine” reached number three on the US Billboard chart and hit single “Pocketful of Sunshine”.

Sheila E., is best known for her 1984 track “The Glamorous Life”, written by Prince. Crystal Waters’ greatest hits came in 1991 and 1994, with “Gypsy Woman” and “100% Pure Love.” CupcakKe is known for her explicit theme songs which went viral in the mid-2010s.

The LGBTQ festival is also supported by Drag Race entertainment from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” personalities and other artists the day and night before the Get Lit event. These include Phoenix, Trinity the Tuck, LaLa Ri, Jasmine Kennedie and more. On October 14, the festival will also hold its signature parade.

The festival is the last for executive director Jeff March, who oversaw the organization for more than a decade. He announced his departure from the role in June this year.

During March’s tenure he developed the Main Street Festival from its original location in Finlay Park, developing the organization and visibility of the event. It now attracts more than 80,000 people to the region, according to the organization.
