GLITTERAMA - MARTHA WASH & KRISTINE W
It will be "raining men" at GLITTERAMA when dance music legends and gay icons Martha Wash and Kristine W team up with international DJs The Perry Twins and drag queen extraordinaire Jackie Beat in a benefit concert event on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at the historic AVALON Hollywood. Kick off to LA Gay Pride weekend to benefit PAWS/LA, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit agency that assists people and pets in need.
GLITTERAMA will feature live performances by superstars Martha Wash (the original Weather Girl™), best known for her iconic hit "It's Raining Men", and Kristine W, named one of Billboard's top 10 dance music artists of all time. Ms. Wash is a 2-time Grammy nominated singer, record producer, songwriter, activist and music executive. She is the iconic voice behind some of the top-selling, most recognizable hits of the 70s, 80s and 90s including her solo recordings and projects with Sylvester, Two Tons O' Fun (later The Weather Girls), C+C Music Factory and Black Box such as "Gonna Make You Sweat" (Everybody Dance Now) and "Strike It Up".
Dance music legend and LGBTQ ally Kristine W has scored 16 #1 dance hits and a record-setting 9 consecutive chart toppers over the past 20 years including club classics "Feel What You Want" and "One More Try". Out magazine writes that Kristine W is, "The most versatile club performer in the land of the living: Drummer, saxophone player, dancer, songwriter, singer, style icon.... There is a reason she's Billboard's #1 charting female dance artist."
Attendees will also be entertained by drag superstar Jackie Beat, who has been captivating audiences for over twenty-five years with her razor-sharp comedy and hysterical song parodies, and will "Hustle" the night away to the music of DJs Doug & Derek Perry whose remixes have helped many songs reach the top of the dance charts including those they've produced for Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Beyoncé and Kristine W.
