Grace Jones, an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and actress, was born in Jamaica before relocating to Syracuse, NY with her family. She began her successful career as a model in NYC and Paris and, in 1977, secured her first record deal which resulted in a string of dance-club hits, including "I Need A Man," and her acclaimed reinvention of Edith Piaf's classic, "La Vie En Rose."
Teyana Taylor, one of the most versatile entertainers of her generation, is set to give face and New York ballroom realness during Saturday’s lineup. Also set to blaze the stage is Brazil’s most famous drag queen, Pabllo Vittar.
Rounding out Saturday night, is Afro-Latina pop sensation, Amara La Negra, along with popular NYC DJ, Johnny Dynell, who will bring his infectious and inclusive style to the stage.
