Capital Pride is pleased to announce Rita Ora as one of five featured headliners at this year’s Capital Pride Festival. The 39th Annual Capital Pride Festival takes place along Pennsylvania Avenue, between 3rd and 7th Streets.
2014 is primed to be the year of Rita Ora. She was unstoppable and dominated the UK charts with the release of her #1 certified platinum debut album, “ORA.” The Roc Nation / Columbia signing is now readying to release her newest single, “I Will Never Let You Down.” Produced by chart-topping, Grammy nominated, multi-platinum producer Calvin Harris, the new song is a fitting introduction into her sophomore album scheduled for a Summer 2014 international release. Rita had a phenomenal rise in 2012, which continued in 2013. She was the only artist to have three #1 singles in a row and proved herself as a force to be reckoned with on the stage, from her European tour with rock giants Coldplay, supporting Drake and playing every major UK music festival, along with her headline “Radioactive” tour across the UK. The multi-Brit nominee is not only reaching to new levels musically, she is also building a fashion and business acumen with her collaborations with brands such as DKNY, Rimmel and Adidas.
The U.S. Capitol has served as the iconic backdrop to the Capitol Stage for hundreds of performances from local and national entertainers, politicians, and activists. Since its inception, the Festival has grown and evolved, now extending to evening hours to enjoy the U.S. Capitol as a background of a sunset dance party. The Festival exhibit hours are 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The Capitol Main Stage will go on until sunset, approximately 9:00 p.m. For more information visit www.capitalpride.org.
